Lerner gets Brady out of jail
|3 - 3|
Rob Lerner earned Brady a point following a six-goal thriller against Faithfold at Rowley Lane.
A very good game saw Brady take a 2-0 lead from strikes by Marc Lazare, but an injury to Richard Baum helped Faithfold get back into the game and they forged ahead thanks to three quickfire goals through Mike Pearson, Yoni Raeburn and player-manager Zuriel Solomon. But Brady battled back well, and Lerner's excellent finish earned them a point.
Brady boss Joel Nathan told JC Sport: "Although Faithfold were never out of the game at 0-2 down, I felt we were in control going into the second half.
However with only 11 players plus myself I knew fitness would be an issue and when we lost Richard, they took a grip of the game. We tried to regroup and it was great credit that we did not let our heads drop."
Faithfold boss Zuriel Solomon told JC Sport: "We showed a lot of spirit to come from 0-2 down and deservedly went 3-2 ahead.
It was a good warm-up for next week's cup tie - we had quite a few boys away today, but the stand-ins did well. Brady played some good stuff too."
