Off the mark with star display

GOALS from Mickey Pryce and Scott Oliver gave Knowle their first point in the Midland Combination Premier League as they drew 2-2 with Continental Star on Tuesday.

GOALS from Mickey Pryce and Scott Oliver gave Knowle their first point in the Midland Combination Premier League as they drew 2-2 with Continental Star on Tuesday.

But they will face another tricky test on Saturday when they take on Oldbury United at their adopted home at Studley.

Inspirational Pryce spurned two early chances but made amends when he broke the deadlock on 30 minutes.

Strike partner Oliver found him on the edge of the box and he fired in the opener from 15 yards out.

After the break Star equalised but Knowle fought with youngster Steve Parrish twice going close.

Last season's top scorer Oliver added to his impressive tally with a close-range effort but the visitors hit back again to ensure the game ended honours even.

Last weekend Knowle suffered a narrow defeat in their curtain-raiser at Heath Hayes.

Ben Haseley opened the scoring early on and Justin Blackmore doubled the hosts' lead shortly after half-time.

Oliver missed a number of good chances before Jason Hall's powerful header gave Knowle a consolation goal.
