Firstly, both Elliott Brathwaite and Casey Maclaren failed fitness tests before the match. Casey’s two-match ban ended at Grays – Wingate & Finchley was the first.

I have to agree with John’s observations. This was a cracking match and, as Gary said, a good advertisement for the Ryman League with both teams getting the credit for the entertainment on show. We deserved a draw and it would have been very unlucky for either team if they had lost. You wouldn't have thought there were more than 20 places in the league table between us.

If Matt Ball should have done better with his trio of chances, it was nothing like as bad as Elijah Adebayo’s miss. How he hit a post from a yard out, only he will know.

It has been mentioned elsewhere in the thread about the comebacks. That was probably the most pleasing thing about the result. Conceding early goals has been a problem all season, but we bounced back well from that, but the second goal came at an even worse time, 30 seconds after Matt’s chances. I am sure, a few weeks ago, there would have been a-folding of tents and three points returning to West Sussex. Thanks to Keagan we got what we deserved.
