Accrington 3 County 3

First published in Sport
Last updated

A DRAMATIC late equaliser from Lee Minshull earned County a point after an entertaining afternoon at Accrington.

The Exiles led from Robbie Willmott's firm free-kick but they were behind at the break after Peter Murphy's firm strike and a Kal Naismith header following a Lenny Pidgeley error.

However, the Exiles improved after the break and leveled when Ryan Burge scored a stunner on his full debut.

Murphy's second on 88 minutes looked to have clinched a valuable win for the hosts, but Minshull's composed finish in added on time saved County and ensured a thrilling contest ended all square.

Never say Never, that's more like it, a good point in the end, from a team that never gave up. Well done lads.

That was a close run thing. Well done, especially to Lee for pulling a rabbit out of the hat at the end.
