KHALSA dropped points away at the Midland League Premier Division’s basement boys after being made to settle for a 2-2 draw on Saturday.

The Birmingham-based side started the brighter of the two teams and created an early scare with a deflected shot at goal which Elliot Rider did well to keep out.

While at the other end Aaron Nagra’s short corner effort was smothered by the home keeper and a shot from Alex Iodine narrowly missed the target.

Sutton themselves continued to press on and were unfortunate not to take the lead when a cross was out of reach for the diving forward.

After a stalemate first half Sutton were once again quick out of the blocks and got their noses in front with a passage of play down the right wing before the home forward calmly slotted the ball home.

The goal prompted Khalsa to step up a gear in search of an equaliser and Scott Angliss’s cross from the right side forced a save from the keeper before Sean Robinson was quick to pounce on the rebound to bring the visitors level.

Khalsa continued to press on and were awarded a flurry or short corners. Anit Chudasama was agonisingly close having beaten two defenders but he scuffed his shot wide.

And moments later Gurmidner Ghattaura and Jas Singh’s combination allowed Singh through at goal but his shot well over the bar.

Aaron Nagra converted three minutes minutes before full-time to give Khalsa the lead however Sutton Coldfield equalised a minute before full time after a hopeful ball was met with a simple tap in to earn both sides a point.

This Saturday Khalsa host Lichfield.
