How they rated:

Halesowen 1, Marine 1

Platt: A really good performance from the Halesowen keeper. He made two good saves from Mitchley in the first half and another from DaSilva in the second. Couldn't do anything about Murray's smart finish for Marine's opener. 8.

Ekongo: Lots of energy to get up and down the right flank but had more defending to do than attacking, especially in the second half. Did slot in on the left side as Town switched things around late on. 7.

Morrison: Did well on his 100th appearance for the club. Like the Yeltz back three, was given a tricky time by the lively Mitchley but held firm. 7.

Goddard: Better in the second half when seemed tasked with the role of supporting the Hales attacks more from midfield. Like his other midfield partners he was a willing worker but perhaps sat too deep, especially in the first half. 7.

Poscha: The pick of the Halesowen centre backs. Defended well and showed his comfort on the ball with a few charges forward. 7.5.

Charlton: Another solid showing from the experienced campaigner. Did back off too far for Murray's strike but marshalled the backline well. 7.

Lawton: Really pleasing debut from the former Coventry youngster on his first start for the club. Lots of energy and chipped in with the vital leveller. 8.

Bragoli: Worked hard in the Yeltz central midfield three but didn't get on the ball as much as he'd have liked. Protected the back line well though. 7.

Udoh: Always a threat and linked up well with strike partner McAtee. Chalked up a host of openings but just couldn't provide the final ball or finish on this occasion. 7.5.

McAtee: A neat footballer but like Udoh couldn't find that final ball. Tried to link play but drifted out if it in the second half before finding himself sitting in a deeper role as the Yeltz brought Ethan Jones on to support Udoh. 7.

Lewis: Mixed afternoon for the left wing back as he tried to find the balance between attack and defence. Had to contend with the tricky Murray as Marine put the pressure on in the second half but did work a few crosses into the opposition penalty area. 7.


Jones: Replaced Goddard in the 68th minute and played down the middle with Udoh. Looked to stretch the tiring defence but didn't quite have the impact as time ran out. 6.5.

Blakemore: Late replacement for Brad Lewis. N/A.

Unused subs: Woodhouse, Steele, Agbor.
