Clapton assistant manager Andre Thomas disappointed to draw against local rivals Tower Hamlets.

Honours finished even in a Friday night clash the between east London rivals at Mile End Stadium.

The home side went into the encounter on the back of a 4-0 home defeat against Takeley in the FA Cup last weekend, while Tons upset Bostik North side Norwich United with a 2-0 win.

“It always feels like a disappointment to draw 0-0,” Thomas admitted.

“Especially in front of the travelling support that made Friday special.

“It would have been nice to reward them with goals and three points, but we’ll take the positive of our fourth consecutive clean sheet in all comps into our next game.”

The visitors had more of the ball in the first half, but Hamlets had better chances as the scoreline remained blank.

And only a superb save from Emmanuel Olajide denied the home side a breakthrough, before Tons applied late pressure as it ended goalless.

“I felt we grew into the game and had our moments and created chances that we should have took but there were some moments where Emmanuel kept us in the game,” Thomas added.

“It was a hard fought point and one that could come to help us later on in the season.”

Clapton will now host Waltham Forest at the Old Spotted Dog on Tuesday evening.
