Beavers unable to break down unyielding Iron.

The Beavers were very lucky to only to get a point, according to Dowse.

Braintree held on for a point in a match that saw them reduced to 9 men by the end of the game, leaving their manager Bradley Quinton clearly gutted at the result, taking a point when they could have done with more to further their playoff hopes.

Speaking after the game, the Iron manager was clearly unhappy about the dismissals, "I've had two players sent off that I don't even think were red cards and it wasn't that kind of game."

However, he was pleased with his side's display. "I was proud of my players today with the performance they put in and I thought the goal we scored was excellent."

Dowse was unhappy with the day too but for different reasons. "I thought we were hopeless. Bottom line is, we were very lucky to come away with a point."

Neither side started quickly and Hampton had to reshuffle their lineup with James Mulley having to be replaced by Christian Jolley midway through the first half.

The Irons created the first clear chance just after as Marcel Barrington cut inside from the left, firing a shot that Sony Dieng had to push around the post as the visitors looked to try and get themselves into the game.

The game was turned on its head just after the half hour, as Braintree's influential midfielder Billy Crook was dismissed for a late, high tackle on Josh Casey, leaving the player requiring lengthy treatment before being able to continue.

The Beavers nearly opened up the game just after as Bradley Hudson-Odoi almost took advantage of striker Shaun Jeffers clever shot, his fierce volley requiring a good save from keeper Nathan McDonald.

Braintree were defending well and denying the Beavers space, and it paid dividends as they broke forward clinically from a corner with just over 10 minutes to go. Hampton were caught with a 3 on 1 break after committing too many men forward, leaving Charlie Wassmer to try and deal with a swarm of orange shirts, ending with Barrington finished off in style past Dieng.

The Beavers, clearly stung by the reverse, almost got back on terms within seconds as Max Kretzschmar met Ben Wynter's pinpoint cross from the left, but he couldn't get enough on the header and it rolled wide.

It was starting to look like the Beavers would have to accept their second defeat of 2018, but following Kretzschmar's clever cross into the area, Wynter was there to stab the ball home from close range.

Deep into the 5 minutes of added time, Luke Allen was dismissed for his second yellow card but in the end, the visitors managed to hold on for the point.
