Bank in search of second win

SHARE

Meadowbank United face a tough test in Pleasant Point at the Oamaru Showgrounds tomorrow.

The two teams are in contrasting form with Point netting four times without reply against Thistle A last weekend while Bank could only muster a 2-2 draw against Timaru Boys’ High School, leaving the Oamaru side with four points from a possible 15.

Mitchell Greaney gave Bank the lead inside 15 minutes, the midfielder negotiated his way through Timaru’s defence to fire home the first.

The homeside responded in kind as pacey winger Mark Otley levelled the score before adding a second to complete his brace at the expense of veteran fullback Keith Roach.

With less than two minutes remaining, Meadowbank looked to have fallen to their third defeat of the campaign before right midfielder Daniel Brokenshire chased down a wayward pass to nudge the ball past goalkeeper Hamish Murdoch and steal a much-needed point for the visitors.

The lack of a genuine striker has left Meadowbank wanting in the final third in recent weeks but will look to get their season back on track in home comforts tomorrow.
