Boss Nick Davis was pleased to see another dimension to his Sittingbourne side on Saturday during their entertaining Isthmian South East goalless draw with Chatham.
In-form Donvieve Jones had a goal disallowed while away goalkeeper Ben Bridle-Card made some fine saves at Woodstock to deny the ninth-placed Brickies all three points.
But Chats had their opportunities too, hitting the woodwork once in either half, while home goalkeeper Matt Cafer made a stunning save to thwart Chatham player-assistant manager Danny Kedwell. “We had a little bit of a different dimension to us today,” said Davis, who started new signings Kieron McCann and Mario Quiassaca. “With the lads that we had up front, we changed formation, first half, and I thought we were able to stretch them a bit - something we haven’t done in the past - with the pace that Mario gives us and Bagusan [Graham]. “Mario’s rounded the keeper and I think he’s made a brilliant recovery save.
A point is a point at the end of the day from another derby.” In the league, Sittingbourne have only played one club outside of Kent in their first six fixtures so far - starting at Whitehawk before matches against Ramsgate, Faversham, Sheppey, Hythe and now Chatham, which have been sandwiched between various cup ties.Read more on kentonline.co.uk
