A LATE goal from substitute Anthony Chuck earned London APSA a creditable point with Southend Manor on Saturday.
The home side had started brightly and Ruel Sandiford almost put them ahead, but Manor came out strongly after the break as Dave Flynn netted.
APSA threw Yasir Rashid and Chuck on and it was thanks to the changes that the hosts started to get back into the game.

Carl Conway and Alastair Trottman kept the visitors at bay, and with full backs Tetteh and Joel Gallimore pushing forward, it allowed Chuck (pictured right) to strike a deserved equaliser.
Sandiford almost gave APSA all three points, but he couldn't find the net, although manager John Higley was delighted with the performance.
"We play with a different team each week, but the squad is looking healthy for next season and some good preparation this year should make us a serious contender next year," he said.
"A lot of good work is being by the chairman and his team with the sponsor and I'm very optimistic about the future."
Saturday was judgment day for APSA's home ground as it was inspected by both the FA and Essex Senior League.
An extension to the March deadline has been provided in order for all the ground works to be completed and chairman Zulfi Ali said: "I'm relieved to hear we're on the way forward and that we're not being stopped from playing.
