Pre­ston pounces for the Shay­men

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

NA­TIONAL LEAGUE: Jor­dan Pre­ston’s stop­page-time header res­cued a point for FC Hal­i­fax Town as they drew 2-2 at Brom­ley.

Ge­orge Porter’s spec­tac­u­lar goal looked to have won it for the hosts, but Pre­ston popped up to head in Ryan Sell­ers’s cross.

Josh Staunton made a wel­come re­turn from in­jury off the bench with an equaliser to can­cel out Frankie Suther­land’s first-half opener.

Hal­i­fax could count them­selves un­for­tu­nate to be be­hind when Suther­land smashed home the re­bound af­ter his penalty had been tipped onto the post by Sam John­son.

From Si­mon Lenighan’s hope­ful pass for­ward, Brom­ley need­lessly con­ceded a cor­ner, and from that, a floated cross from the right was met with a cush­ioned header by Staunton at the back post.

Sell­ers cleared off the line from Uzokwe, be­fore John­son spilled a header back across goal, re­quir­ing a scram­bled clear­ance.

Brom­ley were in the as­cen­dancy and their pres­sure told when Suther­land’s pass played in Porter, who pro­duced a stun­ning vol­ley across goal only for Pre­ston’s late lev­eller to earn the Shay­men a point.
