HATFIELD Sports returned to the top of the Division Three table despite being held to a goalless draw by Bradmore Reserves on Sunday.

Sports climbed above Peartree Wanderers, league leaders at the start of the day, on goal difference.

Below-par Sports created opportunities, but a resolute Bradmore side held firm thanks to some last-ditch defending.

The game wasn't completely one-sided as Bradmore had a few chances of their own, but the longer the game went on the draw seemed the most likely outcome.

Hatfield's Dan Hedges went closest in the first half with a lob that looked in all the way until it struck the post and went out of play.

The second half started with Sports knowing that they needed all three points and they were soon at Bradmore again, but poor finishing and good defending kept them at bay and the game scoreless.

The match became more open towards the end but still finished 0-0.

Sports return to Chairman's Cup action next Sunday and the week after face a Division Three League Cup semi-final.
