BRANDON started with a depleted side due to a couple of non-arrivals.

The first minute saw a tremendous save from keeper Corston to prevent Brandon going behind early on.

Sheringham, fielding their strongest side so far this season (helped by the return of manager John Kowalyk), looked a very good team.

Brandon's defence were at full stretch to keep the score at 0-0 in the first half until a long through ball to Kristian Gleave seemed to have been smothered by Corston, but somehow the ball crept under him and Gleave gratefully accepted an easy tap-in for 1-0 to the hosts.

Sheringham moved up another gear and Brandon's back four of Williams, Birch, Malster and Shepherd had their backs to the wall for a good 15 minutes.

Brandon did create an excellent chance to equalise after a good run into the area from Shaun Leech, but the chance was wasted, and Sheringham were good value for their 1-0 half-time lead.

Brandon came out for the second half full of intent, looking for an equaliser. They were in control for long periods of the half, playing very good, attractive one-touch football.

They were eventually rewarded when a fine cross from Wayne Proctor glided off the head of Neil Edwards and planted in the corner of the net, to leave Jackson well beaten.

Proctor and Waites were creating problems for the home defence with their powerful running and the two Roys - Bland and Peckham - worked very hard to create openings. Corston, in the visitors' goal, coped comfortably with everything Sheringham created in the second half, which didn't amount to that much.

Brandon had an excellent chance to take all three points when Wayne Proctor put in another excellent cross right across the goal, but nobody could get a toe onto the end of it. So what was really a game of two halves ended all square.
