Into the second half and the visitors regained the lead on 55 minutes when TOM KEELINGS lobbed home ’keeper Sully Sajjad from the right hand side.
It was left to ELLIOT JORGE SIMOES INACIO to restore parity on 79 minutes when he dusted himself down after being tripped inside the penalty area to send visiting ’keeper Luke Cocker the wrong way from the 12 yard spot.
