DISCIPLINED defending saw Soham Town Rangers secure a commendable 0-0 draw at home to Bromsgrove Rovers at the weekend.
Though chances for both sides were frustratingly fleeting, the Greens showed a steely determination in defence and proved resilient enough to hold Bromsgrove at bay for the duration of an arduous encounter.
After an uncertain start to the season, Ian Benjamin's side have now started to find focus and the battling draw against Bromsgrove saw them stretch their unbeaten run to four games.
The game itself was hotly contested throughout but it was Soham who would forge the first opening of the game as Dubi Ogbonna gathered Paul Jones whipped cross. Unfortunately for the Greens however, the striker placed well wide from a strong position.

In the introduction of wide-man Deaken Napier midway through the half provided a boost for the home side as they looked to create chances, and it was Napier's jinking run minutes after coming on that almost saw the deadlock broken as the youngster fired just wide from a tight angle.
In the latter stages of the game, the visitors began to turn the screws on the Soham back-line, but the reassuring presence of new-signing Tom Liberatore ensured that the Greens' clean-sheet was kept in tact.
The draw moves the Greens onto 12 points for the season ahead of their trip to high-flyers Rothwell Town on Saturday.
