The last home game of the season for Bromsgrove Sporting saw them host Stratford town in an all-important survival game for the hosts.

With Sporting being in better current form over the last 5 games, the stage was set for a good game of football.

Sporting started the better of the two teams with stand-out player Josh Dugmore providing an outstanding ball for Barnes-Homer who unfortunately couldn’t quite get it on his head.

Shortly after Stratford created some danger in the box however Jordan Goddard, who has recently returned from injury, cleared away.

Sporting continued their energetic start with a few chances in quick succession Callum Ebanks cross found Joe Willis whose shot went wide.
Then again Ebanks placed a great ball into the box, however this time was cleared by Jordan Williams. Dugmore on the attack again provided a ball into the box for Ebanks, his header goes wide.

In the 25th minute Barnes-Homer was brought down in the box and Sporting were awarded a penalty which Barnes-Homer then slotted away comfortably.

An unfortunate injury to an in-from Callum Ebanks forced him off in the 36th minute and shortly after Stratford town equalise through Denness-Barrett.

Another penalty shout for Sporting in the 44th minute as Jordan Goddard taken down in the box, the ref waved this shout away and Stratford went straight on the counter, their shot went over the bar.

A pretty quiet second half for both teams, however Sporting creating most of the chances alongside a few comfortable saves from Ollie Taylor.

Nathan Hayward, who was the winner of the fans player of the year, was taken off injured towards the end of the second half. A list of injuries for Sporting seems to be ever increasing ahead of their last game of the season at Hitchin Town.
