Leoš Loos volleys home the rebound of his original shot to level the scores.

After two very heavy defeats in the past week, Brook Street tightened things up and emerged from today’s match against The Harriers with a hard-earned and deserved point.

In fact, given the shots on goal, the New Home Park side might feel aggrieved to not have taken maximum points, however Brook Street coach Leoš Loos, who netted the equaliser, expressed how pleased he was with the result at full-time.

“After two horrendous results, it was important that we took something from today’s game, and I am very happy to have got the point which edges us further away from the bottom two while keeping us within touching distance of the sides above us”.

He continued, “My players performed very well today and showed great resilience and endeavour. They didn’t throw in the towel when we went a goal down, and they showed the tenacity to grind out the equaliser and with it the point”.

Asked if he was disappointed at not taking maximum points, he said, “Not necessarily. It was more important that we took something from today’s game from a morale point of view, and we did exactly that”.

He added, “We’ve taken a real pummelling in the last two games, but the players rose to the occasion and we secured another point in our quest to avoid the drop. I see it as a point gained rather than two dropped, and the dressing-room is a much happier place tonight because of it”.

The point left Brook Street in sixth place, four points ahead of both Smyllum Rovers FC and next weekend’s opponents Nessie FC and only two points behind second placed Hibernian MFC.
