Barking managed to nab a second-half equaliser through captain Abs Seymour to earn a point away at Ashford Town.

The hosts opened the scoring in the 48th minute with a strike from Daniel Brown before captain Seymour levelled things shortly after at The Robert Parker Stadium.

The two teams played out a 0-0 draw in the first-half of their Isthmian South Central encounter.

Brown then broke the deadlock three minutes into the second-half before midfielder Seymour fired home in the 58th minute to earn the Blues a point to move them out of the bottom two.
