Tuesday, April 19, 2016

Joe Bingham's stoppage-time equaliser earned Sevenoaks Town a point as they came from 2-0 down to draw 3-3 against Ashford United at Greatness Park on Wednesday night.


The draw extended the team's unbeaten Southern Counties East League run to 13 games.


Pat Kingwell and Chris Saunders put the visitors 2-0 up inside the first half hour, needing a win to maintain their hopes of pipping Hollands & Blair to the runners-up spot.


Chris Saunders started the Oaks comeback nine minutes after the break, United's Mikey Dalton's own-goals made it 2-2 with 16 minutes left, before Bingham struck with almost the last kick of the game.


The story might have been even better had Chinedu McKenzie not blazed over the bar from four yards minutes earlier.


Town celebrated in a huddle at the final whistle as their impressive unbeaten run stretched to 13 games - winning 31points out of a possible 39.


United started well with defender Kingwell putting them in front after 10 minutes with a goal any striker would have been proud off.


He picked up the ball well outside the area, before moving forward and shooting right footed into the top left hand corner, giving Ben Bridle-Card no chance.
Saunders made it 2-0 with a low finish, following a break from midfield after 22 minutes as United looked well in control.


Oaks made a change at half-time, sending on Steve Camacho in place of Gary Stock.
Chris Edwards pulled one back within nine minutes of the restart, his low shot beating United substitute keeper Dan Cook, and creeping inside his near post.


However the visitors wasted little time in restoring their two-goal lead, assistant manager Shaun Welford controlling a deep cross well, before blasting home his 34th goal of the season.


United defender Luke Cuthbert then cleared off the line for the second time if the night, before United levelled courtesy of Mikey Dalton's 74th minute own-goal.
Edwards' free-kick took a touch and Dalton diverted into his own net.


McKenzie wasted his chance to level things up, before Bingham made no
mistake two minutes into stoppage-time - his fourth goal in 10 games since arriving at the club.


A very entertaining final game of the season in front of a good crowd.
