As You Were
For the second time this week Heath claimed a point on the road as they stay in 5th place
Firstly well done to Saltdean for getting the game on after many others fell foul of the weather.
After a slow start to the match where both sides settled into the pitch conditions Heath had chances through Melford Simpson heading over after good work from Max Miller who himself fired over the bar on 17 minutes.
Melford Simpson couldn't direct a Callum Saunders free kick into the net as it went agonizingly wide.
Heath were made to pay for the previous misses when Saltdean took the lead through James Fraser on 32 minutes when he slotted into the bottom corner.
heath looked to respond but Max Miller could only stab the ball straight at Rikki Banks and then just before the break Callum Saunders broke free but his fine effort was well saved again by the Saltdean keeper.
Half Time Saltdean 0-1 Heath
Heath started the second half well with Tom Graves disappointed not to hit the target with a free header going just past the wrong side of the post.
Heath were finally rewarded and on equal terms on 56 minutes when Nathan Cooper headed a Callum Saunders corner back into the danger area, Melford Simpson allowed space for Kane Louis to slam the ball into the back of the Saltdean net.
The remainder of the game saw both sides with efforts but nothing to worry either keeper.
Full Time Saltdean 1-1 Heath
