The second half was a feisty affair. The visitors more direct approach saw White nick the ball from the visiting striker as he honed in on goal but the referee pointed to the spot deeming a foul after the two players collided with their follow-through.

Langley converted from the spot with a very well-placed strike to go ahead.

With the ten-men of United forced into taking risks and Langley looking to take advantage on the break, the visitors did have a string of corners to peg the hosts back.

Aaron King’s rebounded free kick saw the United striker drill a powerful shot that hit the underside of the crossbar and come back into play only to be cleared.

With the game becoming more tense and yellow cards being issued on a regular basis it was United who drew level.

In the 84th minute Daniel Parson’s run down the left saw him cross from close to the byline but he was caught by a late challenge. The resultant free-kick saw Marcus Hussey rise to direct his header home.
