BURNHAM Ramblers boss Keith Wilson was the happier of the two managers after their latest local derby.

The Ramblers drew 1-1 with Maldon and Tiptree in their Ryman League division one north encounter on Tuesday night.

This was a low scoring encounter between the two sides as they have been involved in some high scoring games this season.

Wilson said: “It was a good point. If you had asked me before the game I would have taken it.

“We’ve been going through a rough patch so the result was welcome.

“When we went 1-0 up after 30 seconds I thought ‘here we go, it’s going to be another 4-3 game’.

“However, I thought a draw was a fair result.

“They had a good chance, which was cleared by their own player, which should have been a goal.

“And we had a chance as well.

“But we have achieved our target of 46 points and I am happy with that.

“We had a lot of players missing and I am also happy not to have picked up anymore injuries.

“I think out of the two managers I am probably the happier one.

“We soaked up a lot of pressure in the last 15 minutes. Our two centre-halves were outstanding against an experienced player like Leon McKenzie but we defended well as a team as well.”
