Tough test at Hebburn

Posted on 9th February 2018

It was always going to be tough getting anything away at Hebburn and so it proved.

Brandon however started well and created a number of half chances without really threatening to score. When they did finally get the ball over the line it was ruled offside which to some was another debatable descision. Shortly after this Hebburn broke down the left wing and the low cross into the box was unfortunately turned into his own goal by Lee Thompson. 

Shortly after Hebburn make it 2-0 with a well taken header and Brandons hopes of picking something up from this game were looking bleak. Going in 2-0 down at half time didn't seem to reflect fairly on the Brandon first half performance.

From the start of the secomd half Hebburn began to dominate, hitting the woodwork on a number of occasions. Despite their dominance Hebburn could not add to their goal tally. This seemed down to a new found team spirit amongst the Brandon players who never gave up and created a few chances of their own. At the end of the day a two goal difference was a fair reflection of the game.

As an aside it was great to see Hebburn thriving again after their financial difficulties of last season.
