The rot has certainly been stopped at Potters Bar Town but manager Max Mitchell believes they could have come away with all three at home to Bognor Regis Town.

The Isthmian League Premier Division match ended in a 1-1 draw, the Scholars levelling 10 minutes in to the second half through Leigh Rose.

It makes it four games without defeat now after losing all six of their opening league games.

But like the crazy 3-3 midweek draw with Folkestone Invicta, Mitchell felt there were missed opportunities.

He said: "We were more in control in the second half and followed the game plan better, in terms of putting the pressure on and getting the press on.

"We didn't do that for long periods of the first half and found ourselves 1-0 down.

"But we came out tighter in the second half, won the ball back in better areas and we got out goal from that.

"The intent to get the ball back was there to see, it's a shame we didn't see that in the first half because if we did, we would take the three points.

"It's a little bit of a catch-22 situation. We'll take a point given the circumstances surrounding the squad and availability.

"But fair play to the players. They took on board what we said at half-time and executed the plan better.

"We had a few chances and if we were a bit more clinical and a little calmer in the final third, then we'd probably pick up the result."

One player who has really caught the eye in the last few weeks has been Prosper Keto.

He had gone in goal in midweek after keeper Preston Edwards had been sent-off on 51 minutes, conceding just one and pulling off a string of fine saves.

And the full-back turned in another fine performance against the Rocks.

Mitchell said: "Prosper is coming into a vein of form that he fully deserves, because of his energy, his work-rate and composure on the ball.

"He's quite a unique find.

"He came in during pre-season as a little bit of an unknown but he's really starting to find a home here.

"Irrespective of him taking the responsibility on Tuesday by going in goal, he's gone from strength to strength and we're really starting to see continuity in his performances.

"That's credit to him."

Lucas Pattenden had fired the Rocks into the lead on 19 minutes, breaking free down the right wing and firing an effort in off the post.

He nearly had a second when the ball was flashed across the box to him but this time his shooting was wayward.

Max Jessop had the chance to level the game when Keto floated a ball into the box but the former Welwyn Garden City and Colney Heath man headed over the bar.

However, Rose had Bar level in the second period when the visitors failed to play out from the back, gifting the Scholars the equaliser.

It still needed a Keto intervention to preserve the point late on, diverting the ball over the crossbar with a Bognor forward lurking.

Potters Bar's next game will be an unfamiliar Friday night clash at home to Southern League Premier Division Central Berkhamsted in the FA Trophy.

The Scholars will be hoping for a big crowd in the Hertfordshire derby which kicks off at 7.45pm.
