Burnham Ramblers boss Wilson is happy with a point
Updated 3:01pm Thursday 27th March 2014 in Local Sport
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.”
