Wroxham 2, Waltham Abbey 2

Wroxham produced another Trafford Park comeback to earn themselves a valuable home point.

The Yachtsmen were staring down the barrel at 2-0 down after less than half an hour, but second-half goals by Ross Durrant and Remy Gordon earned them a draw – just a week after they had come back from 3-0 down to beat Thamesmead 4-3.

Danny Self, Matt Blake and Gavin Lemmon - in an unfamiliar centre-back position - were drafted in to the side, with Ben Lewis, Martin McNeil and Christy Finch all rested.

Wroxham were on top, but somehow found themselves 2-0 down after 28 minutes, James Peagram and Clark Akers getting the goals for the visitors.

They continued to dominate possession after the break and finally got a foothold in the game on 57 minutes, thanks to Durrant's well-struck curling effort.

Durrant then turned provider, on 76 minutes, finding space on the right to deliver a pin-point cross which was headed home by Gordon.

Wroxham were still indebted to Lemmon for some last-ditch defending as they held on.
