BRACKNELL Town manager Bobby Wilkinson claims his side were robbed of the winning goal in their 0-0 draw with Chertsey at Larges Lane on Saturday, writes Dave Wright.

Late in the game, Seb Bowerman raced down the wing and cut inside before firing home, only for the celebrations to be cut short by the match officials.

Wilkinson said: "When Seb ran down the channel, the linesman ruled the ball had gone out of play, but that did not look the case to us. The ref disallowed what should have been a fantastic goal.

"So we were disappointed not to have got the win, but at least we kept another clean sheet which was pleasing..

"We are also still unbeaten since coming to the club. It's a fantastic run we are on and I hope it will continue. You have got to be very proud of the commitment the boys are showing."

Wilkinson added: "There were two good sides out there, us with young energy and them (Chertsey) with their experience.

"We had four or five good chances in the first 25 minutes, but we couldn't take them.

"They outshone us for about 20 minutes in the second half, but we managed the storm, matching them man to man. Then in the last quarter, we got back in the game and had a few chances."

Having brought in several new players, Wilkinson is still trying out different combinations and, with that in mind, the Robins hosted a friendly against National League South side Tonbridge Angels last night (Tuesday).

This coming Saturday (3pm), they take on FC Romania at Cheshunt and then visit Hungerford next Tuesday (7.45pm) in a re-arranged Berks & Bucks Senior Cup tie, which means a return to Bulpit Lane for the Crusaders' former manager Wilkinson.

"Obviously, I am looking forward to going back as I had many happy years there," he said.

"I know they are two leagues above us, but if we can press high and play together, we will give them a good run for their money.

"I don't want to see our unbeaten run ended at Hungerford."
