FOOTBALL - Late Quaynor goal earns Sporting impressive point at Peterborough

JOSH QUAYNOR’s late stunner completed an impressive second-half comeback from Bromsgrove Sporting as the Rouslers drew 2-2 at Peterborough Sports to secure another vital point in their relegation battle.

Quaynor curled in a free-kick on 87 minutes to draw Sporting level after Callum Ebanks had reduced the deficit on 67 minutes with his third goal in two matches.

The result means Sporting sit 18th in the Southern League Premier Central table, one place and two points above the relegation zone.

And Gavin Hurren’s side started strongly at the Bee Arena as Tom Taylor headed over the bar before Jamie Molyneux’s header was cleared off the line.

However, the home side took the lead on 18 minutes when Josh McCammon produced a brilliant half-volley from outside of the penalty area to leave Sporting keeper Ollie Taylor with no chance.

And Peterborough doubled their lead on 22 minutes when Luke Warner-Eley floated a free-kick over the wall and into the bottom right corner.

Bromsgrove almost reduced the deficit when Josh Dugmore’s low shot was saved by Sports goalkeeper Peter Crook with Taylor denying another Warner-Eley free-kick at the other end before Mark Jones blasted over.

The visitors came out fighting in the second half when Taylor headed over before Ebanks touched the ball past Crook from 20-yards out from Dugmore’s superb ball down the right.

Sports nearly restored their two-goal advantage when Josh Moreman’s shot hit the post and were made to pay for that miss with three minutes remaining.

Quaynor curled a delightful free-kick over the wall and into the bottom left corner from 30-yards out on his 150th Sporting appearance to earn the visitors a point.

Manager Hurren said: “I am really proud of the lads this evening. They all worked hard, played well as a team and got a deserved result.”

Bromsgrove are next in action at home to local rivals Redditch United on Saturday, April 2 with kick-off at 3pm at the Victoria Ground.
