Bulls miss opportunity

A PROFLIGATE Bulls side were left to rue a number of missed opportunities in a 0-0 draw at Redhill on Saturday, their first such scoreline in league football.

On a sticky surface at Kiln Brow, Gary Freeman’s side struggled to find any prolonged rhythm, but had their moments in front of goal.

Luca Margaroli hit the crossbar midway through the opening half with a deft chip over Jack Minchin in the home goal, who’d already produced a wonderful save to deny Lorne Bickley.

Margaroli was again thwarted by Minchin at full-stretch early in the second period, before the young midfielder spurned a wonderful opportunity late on, lashing wide despite having plenty of time and space ten yards out.

Freeman acknowledged a point was fair on a Redhill side guilty of spurning their own openings, Euan Van Der Vliet denying both Derick Hayford and Joe Dyett from close range.
