A Jimmy Muitt goal gave the Rocks a point as they drew 1-1 at Harlow in the Bostik premier.

The striker put Bognor ahead with a ninth-minute penalty but the hosts levelled through Emile Aqcuah 17 minutes later. Neither side could find a winner.

The game saw Gary Charman begin his third spell in a Rocks shirt and there is a new injury worry for the club - Brad Lethbridge, one of their young Pompey loanee forwards, went off injured in the first half.

A point leaves Bognor ninth in the Bostik premier - but only three points separate fifth from 12th as the season reaches the halfway stage.

Pagham are out of the FA Vase after a 6-2 defeat at Sholing in Hampshire. Callum Overton and George Gaskin scored but only after the home side - previous finalists in the competition - had made their progress safe.

Bognor won't stand in way of players' progress
