Bostik North: AFC Sudbury 1 Barking 1
Barking held to a 1-1 draw against AFC Sudbury thanks to a 94th minute from Callum Harrison.
The Blues looked set to turn their slow start as they looked to make it back-to-back wins in the Bostik North but they had their strong start shattered by the late goal at the Wardale Williams Stadium.
The two sides held each other 0-0 at the half-time with both having a few chances.
Justin Gardner’s men came out the traps fast in the second-half and found themselves leading one minute after the re-start.
Emmanuel Ighorae cut in from the right and his effort was blocked but broke to Daniel Cheema who slotted it home into the bottom corner from the edge of the area.
The Blues then began to dominate the run of play and had a whole host of chances.
Late on Ryan Cosson bundled over Phil Kelly inside the box when Barking looked set to earn the three points.
A penalty was awarded and up stepped substitute Callum Harrison who dispatched the spot kick to earn his side a point.
