Bromsgrove Sporting ended a three match losing run in the league with a 1-1 draw at Kettering Town on Tuesday evening.

The Rouslers took the lead early on courtesy of Prince Henry before substitute Dan Jarvis levelled proceedings three minutes into second half added time.

Bromsgrove made the best possible start to the game, as Henry slotted home from close range five minutes in after the Poppies failed to clear their lines from a corner.

The chances continued to come for Sporting, with Conor Tee having a trio of strikes shortly following the goal. The third of these was a free kick that struck the crossbar after the lively Miro Pais was brought down just outside the area - Harry Reilly was booked for that challenge, but he could well have received a more severe punishment on another day.

Bromsgrove's dominance continued well into the half - the 34th minute saw Kettering keeper Dan Jezeph produce a brilliant diving save to keep out a Luke Rowe header. The subsequent corner was headed wide by Pais.

The home side's best chance of the half came in added time, as Lewis White produced a header that Ollie Taylor easily held.

The pendulum swung slightly after the interval, with Kettering enjoying a greater share of the opportunities; the 49th minute saw captain Rhys Sharpe strike a fierce effort that Taylor saved well. Five minutes later, Bruno Andrade stuck the ball in the net at the back post but saw it ruled out for offside.

Tyrone Lewthwaite headed over from close range in the 58th minute; up the other end, there was a slightly bizarre moment six minutes after, whereby the referee allowed Luke Rowe to take a free kick from distance with Jezeph miles out of his goal - the Sporting skipper saw his instinctive shot hit the post.

In the 69th minute, Tee went off injured and, with Aaron Roberts subbed off earlier after picking up a knock, life became a whole lot tougher for Bromsgrove. Taylor had to be alert to keep out two Lewthwaite efforts as the clock ticked towards 90 minutes, whilst a Reilly strike as injury time commenced was also kept out.

The sucker punch of a leveller came in the 93rd minute, as Jarvis capped a decent run with a well taken drive that just evaded the impressive Taylor.

Ayo Lekuti and Ben O'Hanlon both had chances to grab an extremely late winner for Sporting, but neither could make the most of their respective efforts.
