Comp: Great Western Suburban League

Windsor & Eton stretched their unbeaten league run to 7 games after a 1-1 draw at home to Stourbridge.

This was definitely a game of two halves as both sides struggled to produce chances in the opening 45 minutes.

The closest Stourbridge came was when Aaron Drake headed Paul McCone's corner over the bar.

As for Windsor their best chance came when Leon Broadhurst cleared Fiston Manuella's header off the line.

The second half was much the same and didn't come alive until Stourbridge took the lead in the 71st minute.

Drake's corner found Drew Canavan on the edge of the area where the substitute fired past James Larkin.

Things got worse for Windsor minutes later when they were reduced to 10 men when Justin Clayton brought down Ryan Powe.

The combination of the goal and the sending off seemed to wake up the Royalists as they finished the match very strongly.

A long throw from Leon Soloman, flicked on by Manuella, was fired over by Adam Bernard.

Soloman then set up the equaliser when his free kick was headed down by David Woozley and then clinically slotted past Lewis Solly by Michael Chennells.

Bernard should have wrapped things up moments later when he was put clean through by Chris Owens but rather than shoot decided to square the ball for Chennells.

The ball ran behind the Windsor striker with Jake Parsons running in but his effort was deflected behind for a corner.

Chennells and Pearce then combined in injury time when first Chennells effort was blocked and then as Pearce followed up Solly did well to keeps his effort out.

For all the pressure and chances Windsor had in the closing 15 minutes it was Stourbridge who could have had the final say in the result.

Windsor failed to clear the ball and when it was lifted back in to area Powe was quickest to react but found Larkin with quicker reactions to keep his header out.
