Jeffers Rocks Bognor Late On

A late Shaun Jeffers strike sealed all three points for the Beavers, to keep their promotion hopes alive...

A Shaun Jeffers strike six minutes from time handed Hampton and Richmond Borough a 1-0 victory against a struggling Bognor Regis side.

During a cagey affair in the first half, Hampton were frustrated as Bognor created the better chances early on, with Ollie Pearce having the pick of the bunch, when he managed to dink the ball over keeper Will Henry towards goal.

However, defender Ben Wynter managed to clear the ball off the line, preventing the away side from scoring the opener.

The Beavers created their first decent chance in the 15th minute when Bradley Hudson-Odoi cut inside from the left and floated a ball towards Jeffers inside the box, however he could only direct his header off target.

Shortly after that and a couple more chances came Hampton’s way, with Hudson-Odoi the provider again.

His great run and then cross from the left fell to Max Kretzschmar at the far post who flicked a header towards James Mulley, but then his header towards goal was well tipped over the crossbar by Rocks keeper Dan Lincoln.

Hampton’s best chance of the first half came ten minutes before the break through Jeffers again, but after Hudson-Odoi did brilliantly – using his trickery and skill – to beat his man and then pick the striker out, Jeffers could only blaze over from 12 yards out.

It’s fair to say that the Beavers won the second half as they created many more chances, and had more of the play inside Bognor’s half, which put the away side under pressure.

With around 20 minutes left on the clock, this was when the Beavers really began to look like scoring and take the lead.

Kretzschmar came close when his header bounced whiskers wide of the far post after a cross came in from the left.

Hampton nearly broke the deadlock 15 minutes from time through substitute Harry Crawford as his header from just a few yards out rattled the crossbar.

The crossbar was then rattled again just a few minutes later as Brendan Kiernan’s venomous shot was - with the faintest of touches - tipped onto the woodwork by Lincoln.

But as Hampton pilled the pressure on the Rocks, their persistence eventually paid off as Jeffers’ close control and neat turn inside the box gave him space to drill his effort across goal and into the bottom right hand corner, giving the home side all three points.

In stoppage time, Bognor Regis captain Sami El-Abd was given a straight red card for an apparent leading elbow.

But in the end, the Beavers held on to keep their promotion hopes alive.

The win for the Beavers moves them into second place in the National League South, four points off leaders Dartford with a game in hand.
