AFC DARWEN 2 WINSFORD UNITED 2
Winsford denied Darwen a win and three precious points with a last minute goal.
There was a quiet start start to the match although Darwen had a one on one with the Winsford keeper but failed to cash in.
With fifteen minutes gone, the home side were awarded a free kick on the edge of the box. Jordan Scott drove the ball into the bottom corner to give Darwen the lead.
On the half hour a powerful Winsford shot on the edge of the box was saved beautifully by Ben Proctor, and with three minutes of the half to go a corner was cleared of the Darwen line.
Half Time: AFC Darwen 1 Winsford United 0
Five minutes after the restart Darwen failed to capitilise on a ball over the top as a good shot met a good save, and within five minutes Winsford squared the match as a mix up in the home defence allowed Cotterell to tap in.
Darwen were growing in confidence but missing chances. On seventy two minutes Adam Douglas just failed to convert a corner, but three minutes later the home side were awarded a penalty, with Matthew Allen sending Michael Langley the wrong way.
As the game was coming to an end it looked like a Darwen win, but in injury time weak defending from a corner allowed Jenyons to level the match.
