Jerry Gill admitted to another bout of frustration as his Bath City were stymied yet again in Saturday’s goalless draw with Bognor Regis Town.

It was the third successive 0-0 draw at Twerton Park as the Romans approach 300 minutes without a goal on home soil, since Tom Smith bagged the fourth in last month’s home thrashing of East Thurrock United.

Again it was a mixed bag for Gill and Co, who witnessed a lacklustre first-half performance against a Bognor side sitting second bottom.

City were in charge for the vast majority of the second period, but could not convert the smattering of chances that came their way.

“Again we’ve created second half,” Gill reflected. “First half again, up the slope it was not so good.

“To be fair to [Bognor], I thought they were a decent side. They passed the ball really well, found pockets of space and we had to change the system after about ten, 15 minutes because the diamond wasn’t quite working for us, so we went back to 4-3-3.

“We had the one chance cleared off the line in the first half without them really creating too much. There wasn’t too much going in that we thought was going to cause us a problem, but they played good possession football.”
