FC Halifax Town 2 Nuneaton Town 2
Tuesday 8th October 2013 (Skrill Premier)
Report courtesy of Nuneaton News;
Wes York scored seconds after FC Halifax Town took the lead in injury time to earn Nuneaton Town an impressive 2-2 draw on Tuesday night.
Boro went into the game without key men Andy Brown and Gavin Cowan, plus recent arrival Louis Briscoe.
However, they merited their point as York scored first after five minutes following good work by Louis Moult to set him up, York tucking the ball away from six yards.
There were chances at either end before Halifax drew level after 40 minutes as James Belshaw saved from Halifax’s Josh Wilson and opposite number Matt Glennon kept out a Gaz Dean shot from the edge of the box.
Dan Gardner got the equaliser when Boro failed to defend a long throw from Marc Roberts as he slotted home at the far post.
James Armson and Theo Streete missed great chances in the second half and they looked set to be punished when Halifax took the lead in stoppage time.
Streete failed to clear and Ryan Toulson was unmarked in the box to break Boro hearts – or so it seemed.
Almost straight from the kick-off York broke clear to stab the ball over the line for his fourth of the season.
Boro climb one place to third in Skrill Premier despite making it no wins in five, however, they will be delighted with the second late fight back in a week.
