Ten-man King’s Lynn battled back to claim a valuable away point.

The league leaders, trailing 2-1, lost skipper Michael Clunan to a straight red card in the 64th minute, but Craig Parker struck with 16 minutes remaining to earn a share of the spoils.

Lynn got off to the worst possible start, going behind after just four minutes, George Bailey firing past keeper Alex Street from just inside the area. Clunan fired over, but was on hand to level matters from the penalty spot on 21 minutes after Ryan Fryatt had been fouled.

But just two minutes later Lynn were behind again, gifting the hosts a goal when Street took too long to clear the ball, was closed down by Jack Bowen and, despite making the save, could do nothing to prevent Liam Brooks tapping home the rebound.

Clunan went for a foul on Morgan Penfold, but again Lynn hit back, with Parker the hero.
