The first team, who were seemingly cruising to victory being 3-0 up after 59 minutes, conspired to concede three goals and end up with just a point in a 3-3 draw at Lowestoft Town this afternoon.

The Greens took the lead in the 22nd minute through Niko Muir, and were unfortunate not to be further ahead at the break. However, Casey Maclaren doubled the lead in the 49th minute, and Muir scored his second of the afternoon just before the hour mark, capitalising on hesitation by the subsitute keeper.

WIthin a minute Lowestoft had pulled a goal back through Michael Spillane, and in the 73rd minute the same player made it 3-2. The Greens had chances to restore a two goal advantage, including one effort from Finbarr Robins that hit the post, but deep into stoppage time the defence failed to clear the ball and Chris Henderson slammed the ball into the net. In the aftermath of the equaliser Chris Seeby was sent off for something he said to the referee.

With Tuesday's game against Kingstonian being called off, all focus is now on the FA Cup tie at Boreham Wood on Saturday afternoon.
