Report: Flackwell Heath 2 Fairford Town 2

FAIRFORD Town captain Lee Smith scored his 14th goal of the season two minutes from time to secure a point at Flackwell Heath on Saturday.

The visitors had played well for the point, holding the home side level at the break before Shane Bumphrey opened the scoring on 49 minutes with his second goal for Fairford on his return to the side following suspension.

However, the home side levelled just four minutes and when the hosts took the lead with 15 minutes remaining, it looked as though a familiar tale was unfolding with Fairford’s good work undone.

Fairford’s cause was not helped when they were reduced to ten men with midfielder Callum Preece dismissed for two bookable offences with eight minutes remaining.

However the Gloucestershire side showed their mettle with Smith’s strike two minutes from time securing a deserved point.
