TERRAS: Mixed emotions for Terras' boss Brendon King
BRENDON King had mixed emotions after seeing his side force a replay in a 2-2 draw with Bognor Regis.
While disappointed to see his men go two goals down, the Terras’ boss was mightily relieved after a couple of late strikes earned them another crack at the Ryman Premier League outfit.
The Terras looked to be crashing out of the FA Cup at the second qualifying round stage but a stirring comeback saw Stewart Yetton and Ben Joyce score in the last five minutes to level matters.
The Rocks took the lead through a Ben Johnson penalty and they doubled their advantage thanks to a superb Arron Hopkinson effort – but King’s troops showed their character to fight back.
King said: “I thought we played well until we conceded the penalty. However, you can’t legislate for individual errors and I have no problem with the decision as it was clear-cut.
“We knew they were a good side as we had done our homework on them. They are well-drilled and we’d worked to counter that.
“However, our decision-making was poor and our final ball into the box was not good enough.
“As I’ve said, I was happy until the first goal but we showed character after falling two goals behind and got back into the game.”
The Terras finished the game with four strikers on the field as they looked to salvage the tie and claim the £4,500 prize money.
King added: “I brought Mark Ford and Matt Groves on and we threw the kitchen sink at them.
“Thankfully we got the breakthrough with Stewart Yetton showing his predatory instincts.”
Defender Michael Walker made his long-awaited debut for Weymouth and played at right-back against Bognor’s lively winger Hopkinson.
King added: “Michael was obviously lacking in game time but I thought he did okay.
“We now need to dust ourselves down and go again in the replay on Tuesday.”
