Banbury Utd 2 (Gordon 11, Shariff 36) Tiverton Tn 2 (Bushin 41 pen, Saunders 69)

BANBURY United let slip a two-goal lead as they were held to a draw by Tiverton Town in the Premier Division at Spencer Stadium.

The home side took the lead in the 11th minute when Delroy Gordon headed home Joe Coleman’s free-kick.

Tiverton goalkeeper Chris Wright then had to leave the pitch with injury.

And the first thing his replacement, registered keeper and No 6 Tom Gardner, had to do was to pick the ball out of the net after new loan signing Nabil Shariff raced clear to score.

Tiverton pulled a goal back in the 41st minute when Adam Howarth was adjudged to have fouled, and Joe Bushin netted from the penalty spot.

Tiverton equalised after the break when Mark Saunders fired home a rebound.

Banbury Utd: Murrell, Stanbridge (Staff 70), Howarth, Gordon, Learoyd, Haisley, Coleman, Benjamin, Shariff, Taylor (Cross 85), Martin. Subs not used: Oulton, Cray.
