POTTERS Bar manager Steve Browne thought a draw from last Saturday's away encounter with Northwood was a fair result.

The hosts took a first-half lead through a John Christian header before Junior Dadson nodded in for the visitors to secure a deserved point.

It was a welcome outcome for the Scholars, who had lost their previous four games without finding the back of the net.

"Considering the previous couple of weeks and Northwood only losing two home games all season, it was a fair point," said Browne after the match.

"In the first 20 minutes we were well on top without being able to convert our chances.

"We had two really good chances that the boys should have done better with. Even if you hit the target you have to commit the keeper to make a save, we did not work him quite enough."

Midway through the first half Bar skipper George Sifonios was forced off with a hip injury and the home side then came alive.

"We lost George after about 25 minutes and that gave them the initiative, we cleared one off the line and then they got their goal," said Browne.

"In the second half we had 90 per cent of the possession and scored a well-worked goal.

"We had other opportunities to win the game and they had one at the death so overall it was a fair result."

The boss of the Parkfield club was delighted with the way his side performed as well as the result.

"Getting the point was pleasing but the way they worked hard and battled was equally pleasing," he said.

Potters Bar are away to Aveley on Saturday.
