LAN­CASTER’S run of home games without a win ex­tended to five.

Af­ter con­trol­ling much of the first half in which they went ahead, Lan­caster found the vis­i­tors a to­tally dif­fer­ent propo­si­tion af­ter the break with two ex­cel­lent late saves from goal­keeper Josh Pow­ell earn­ing them a share of the points.

Lan­caster al­most took the lead af­ter five min­utes when Sam Bai­ley found space in the penalty area but his shot was well saved by Liam Cas­tle.

It was his brother Char­lie Bai­ley who even­tu­ally gave them the lead mid­way through the first half when he made a strong run to­wards the penalty area and al­though there was an at­tempt to ob­struct him, he was able to score.

Bar­well pushed an ex­tra player for­ward at the start of the sec­ond half and it bore early div­i­dends with an equaliser af­ter 50 min­utes when Brady Hickey found him­self free in front of goal and al­though Pow­ell came out quickly, he found the net off the cross­bar.

The fi­nal chance of the game fell to Bar­well’s Matt Sten­son in stop­page time as he was played through on goal but was de­nied by another stun­ning save from Pow­ell. STAR MAN: Josh Pow­ell (Lan­caster) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
