Ware took their unbeaten run to five games against a physical and direct Redbridge side and had the first goal opportunity when a Ryan Wade corner was met by Murat Karagul whose header hit the bar and went over for a goal kick.
Ware continued to attack and a Khale Dacosta run and shot inside the box was hit tamely at the keeper and he gathered the ball comfortably, Redbridge fought back and a free kick by Vinny Murphy was hit into the side netting.
Ware then had a free kick from a foul on Francis Okooboh, Ryan Wade bent the ball around the wall and was unlucky to see the ball fly just pass the upright, and another chance fell to Ware when Alaa Oujdi’s dangerous cross was cleared in a crowded goal mouth.
The action was going backwards and forwards with both sides unable to get any dominance in the game, Ware tried to play their passing game but were thwarted by Redbridge’s physical and direct approach to the game so Ware had to change their game plan to suit the pattern of the game.
Redbridge’s attacks were aimed mainly at the very tall Junior Fatai who was well marshalled by Lee White in the Ware defence, Ware continued to play their football on the ground without resorting to the long ball play and this almost paid off when Murat Karagul passed to Samir Hadi who lobbed the ball to Francis Okooboh whose first time shot hit the side netting.
Another passage of good play was when a Lee White free kick was headed on to Ryan Wade who turned and shot just past the near post when in a good position, another chance fell to Khale Dacosta whose shot was well saved by keeper Mark Parker.
As the first half drew to a close Albert Adu crossed into the box, the ball was cleared and fell to Khale Dacosta whose shot was saved low down by the keeper.
A minute or so before the end of the half the floodlights failed and the referee called a halt to proceedings.
Half-time score: Redbridge FC 0-0 Ware FC
The start of the second half was delayed for ten minutes but Redbridge managed to get the floodlights back on and in working order.
Ware continued their attacking game and had an early chance but Rheo Josephs cross in to the box was cleared, Redbridge then had their chance when the dangerous Chinedu McKenzie was put through and Rhys Madden quickly came off his line to save at the feet of McKenzie.
Redbridge then had a two more excellent chances to take the lead when Lee White failed to clear a high cross into the box and Chinedu McKenzie nipped in and lobbed the ball onto the bar and out of play, and then a pass from Shane Wallace to Chinedu McKenzie saw the latter hit wide of the near post.
Ware overcome the late pressure from Redbridge to carve out opportunities themselves with Rheo Josephs cross being met by Charlie Ledula who instead of firing across the keeper he hit it straight at him and he managed to hold onto the ball.
A couple of more chances went begging before the final whistle with Chinedu McKenzie heading onto the bar and shots from Khale Dacosta and Charlie Ledula that just cleared the cross bar.
At the final whistle honours were all even at 0-0.
Final score Redbridge FC 0-0 Ware FC.
