Wroxham snatched a draw from the jaws of victory in Essex this evening, after a dramatic finale against Romford.
The match was played at Thurrock's Ship Lane stadium, with the hosts looking to avenge an 8-0 thrashing at Trafford Park earlier this season.
They made a good start, with Wroxham goalkeeper Luke Tibbles bringing down Callum Ibe in the 17th minute and Loui Hazelwood scoring from the spot.
Jamie Forshaw, Nathan Stone, Danny White and Remy Gordon all had good chances but the visitors went into half-time 1-0 down.
Top scorer Christy Finch missed a good chance early in the second half before the game was held up in the 52nd minute after a nasty clash of heads between Wroxham skipper Andy Howell and Jamie Byrne, with both being taken to hospital.
Gordon equalised in the 69th minute after the home keeper spilled a shot and then set up Stone for what looked to be the winner in the 90th minute, only for Joe Scott to level for Romford in the third of six added minutes.
The point moved Wroxham up to fourth in the Ryman League North Division table, keeping Stewart Larter's side on course for a play-off place with seven matches left to play.
