CHRIS Wreh's equaliser seven minutes from time earned Banbury United a point at Pitching In Southern League Premier Central leaders Coalville Town.

The Puritans’ unbeaten start to the season was in danger as the final whistle approached, only for the forward to secure a 1-1 draw.

Andy Whing’s side remain third in the table, four points behind Coalville with three games in hand.

Banbury started well, with Kelvin Langmead heading over the crossbar and Wreh seeing an effort well saved inside the first ten minutes.

The latter thought he had put the visitors 1-0 up midway through the half, but the offside flag cut short the celebrations.

Moments later the hosts were ahead, as former Accrington Stanley striker Billy Kee scored from the penalty spot.

The Puritans ramped up the pressure after the break, with Wreh, Langmead and Jack Stevens all going close.

They forced several corners in the final ten minutes and eventually the pressure told, as Wreh struck to extend his side’s unbeaten league run to 15 games.
