The best chance for the home side to level the match fell to Bush, who found himself with only Molyneux to beat. However, the final shot was well wide of the target.
On the hour Wells were awarded a penalty for hand-ball, Sutherland-Gray converted, sending Butters the wrong way.
Bradenham started to push Wells back and create chances and the Seasiders’ defence worked hard clearing the attacks as the Bulldogs looked to reduce the arrears.
On 80 minutes Wanderers were awarded a penalty which Bush converted.
This lifted the home side and they created several chances to level the match, Bush, Melton and Frost all missing clear-cut chances.
