REDS HAIL PIGGON’S LAST-GASP LEVELLER
REDDITCH played the get out of jail card for the second time in a week, producing a 90th minute equaliser to grab a point at the Trico Stadium.
The Reds denied leaders Kettering with a 95th minute strike in a 4-4 thriller on Tuesday and this time kept at their game, restricting the visitors to just one goal at half-time.
In truth it could have been four or five, with Adam Marriott himself having chances to get a hat-trick at least but he was denied three times by goalkeeper Reece Francis.
Lynn enjoyed almost total possession in the first half and took a deserved lead on 31 minutes when Marriot went close but his shot came off the defence and captain Michael Clynan netted the rebound.
The second half was more even, with Lynn continuing to play their passing game but looking less threatening, although Craig Parker shot just wide on 54 minutes.
For Redditch, Shaq Leachman-Whittingham saw a shot deflect wide on 61 minutes and Ryan Hawkins went close before a long ball into the box right on full time was turned in by substitute Mitchell Piggon.
Even then, Redditch had a chance to win it in injury time through Leachman-Whittingham, but his shot was saved by Alexander Street in goal.
