Another point against a side we lost to twice last season but another goal after Strollers grabbed an equaliser four minutes into stoppage time.

After a few good chances from Jamie Docherty and Zac Butterworth we eventually took a deserved lead with 18 minutes gone.

Andy Rodden was brought down by Ross Clarke and Jamie DOCHERTY slotted home his third goal of the season from the penalty spot.

However, Strollers equalised just five minutes later when Mark McCONNELL slotted home in a packed six -yard box following a corner.

Eight minutes from the break Zac BUTTERWORTH latched onto a long ball from Dougie Hill and fired home from 12 yards.

Both sides had their chances in the second half with Jacob Paczikas pulling off a fine one handed save from Andy Rodden’s deflected free kick, while a shot from Josh Jack came off the underside of the bar with 22 minutes to go.

Then as the game entered its final seconds Kris AMPONSAH, who played as a trialist for us last season, headed home from a corner.
