Rothwell Corinthians  2    Deeping Rangers  2

Saturday, 06 February 2010

Corinths almost pulled off the surprise of the day but were thwarted by a late Rangers fightback.

Sam Johnson's 12th minute starter had Corinths ahead at the break and they appeared on course for a much needed victory when Bobby Drain added a 65th minute second after a disputed spot kick was awarded for handball of a Johnson cross.

Substitute Ashley Stevens came to Deeping's rescue, reducing the arrears after 72 minutes and levelling in the final minute after finding space atthe back post.

Rothwell: Brad Wilson, Ryan Cottingham, Phil Cox, Lee Martin, Micky Harman, Kevin Fox, James Lorimer (Dean Murray), Russell Escritt, Sam Johnson, Bobby Drain, Danny Steed (Anthony Farrell).

Deeping: Danny Bircham, John-Paul Duncliffe, Ben Porter, Matt Porter (Mitch Griffiths), Dan Holyoak, Michael Goode, Michael Stevenson, Spencer Tinkler, Mark Paul (Ashley Stevens), Sam Bettinson, Scott Musgrove.
