LUMSDEN LEAVES IT LATE

The Non-League Football Paper - - NPL WEST & NPL EAST - By Jay Tay­lor

TADCASTER Al­bion ex­tended their un­beaten league run to five but only just af­ter a last gasp equaliser res­cued a point against AFC Mans­field.

The vis­i­tors took a very early lead when El­lis Bark­worth was guilty of nudg­ing Phillip Bux­ton in the back in­side the penalty area. Char­lie Dawes stepped up and con­fi­dently con­verted the spot kick on four min­utes.

Fol­low­ing on from this mo­ment, Taddy dom­i­nated the en­tirety with the Bulls now hav­ing a lead to de­fend.

How­ever, deep into in­jury time top scorer Joe Lumsden came off the bench to res­cue a point. Casey Stew­art pre­cisely slid to the striker who ri­fled his tenth goal of the cam­paign into the roof of the net from close range.

In the end both sides will feel ag­grieved with just a point. STAR MAN: Tom Crosby (Mans­field) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
