Thorpe St Andrew 0, Bungay Town 0

The Black Dogs fought out their third goalless draw of the season at a breezy Thorpe on Saturday – but it was a game they should have won.

They had more possession and the best of the chances on the day, but were unable to take them, often thanks to brave blocking by the home defence.

It was their second successive clean sheet though, and keeper Brandon Ling had few serious saves to make.

Bungay had the first chance of the game as Andre Martens found Jayden Dance, but the keeper blocked his 13th minute shot.

From the corner Connor Doddington’s flag kick found its way across the six-yard box with no one getting a touch.

Soon after Adam Bray set up Tom Leuenberger to fire wide.

The same player went close with another long range effort that hit the outside of a post.

The closest Bungay came in the first half was a fine curling effort from Dance that deserved a goal but with the keeper beaten the ball hit the bar. Thorpe’s best chance of the game came in the 40th minute as for once a forward got clear, but Ling stood tall to block the shot.

Playing up the slope in the second half Bungay continued to have the better of things, and Martens had a shot blocked.

Thorpe had a free-kick on the edge of the area which was blocked by the defensive wall.

In the 61st minute Martens played Dance in but again the busy keeper turned away the shot - and did the same with another Dance effort soon afterwards.

Callum Rudkin, on as a substitute, put one effort over and then combined with Jack Child for the latter to try his luck, but it lacked power.

On Saturday Bungay entertain Holt United, 2.30pm.
