LITTLE Oakley's drew 1-1 with visitors White Ensign in the Essex Senior League, writes LARRY DOBKIN.

While the Acorns are creating plenty of chances, they are currently unable to find the killer touch in front of goal.

Multiple chances were created against White Ensign, with only one chance being converted.

The first attack of the game saw Waren send a glancing header towards goal from Liam Barry's corner that sailed narrowly wide of an Oakley post.

Oakley then had the bulk of the possession up to half-time, with Papple trying an overhead kick with his back to goal which sailed wide.

The Acorns had a breakaway from a clearance finding Rowe homing in on goal when he was tackled from behind and awarded a free-kick.

Adie Cant took the free-kick but his shot was high and wide.

Rowe was the focal point of many of Oakley’s attacks and found himself in front of goal 25 yards out where he took a speculative shot but the keeper was well placed and made an easy save.

Oakley went in goal-less at half-time but started the half the second half on the front foot.

Blackwall won the ball in midfield and laid a short ball to Harman, whose first-time shot was bravely headed away by Hunter.

A good passing move by Oakley fell to Dan Rowe, whose skilful touch took the ball from out under his feet and put him one on one with the keeper.

He bent the ball into the corner of the net, to give the hosts the lead.

The goal seemed to give Ensign a greater purpose and a driven cross into the box found Gregory who struck a sweet shot on the turn that went marginally over the bar.

Oakley had a chance to double their lead when Oli Travell released Mann who had run into the box but his first touch let him down, allowing the keeper to get to the ball first.

The game had picked up pace and a searching ball found Papple who was in on goal with only the keeper to beat but his shot went wide of the goal.

White Ensign equalised when Mechack Asuks side-footed home from close range, following a scramble from a corner.

Oakley had a great chance to claim a late winner when the dangerous Travell went down the wing and found Sonnex coming in at pace.

Sonnex got a shot off but the Ensign keeper closed the angle down and made a superb save, to ensure the spoils were shared.

Oakley's player of the match was Dan Rowe who never stopped running and scored a much-needed goal.
