Stoppage time salvation steals point

Larges Lane, 18th October 2014

Staring at a fourth league defeat in a row, Wootton Bassett Town staged a dramatic, desperate last gasp rally to claw back a two goal deficit against Bracknell Town and claim a point in a 2-2 draw.

Despite a strong first half showing, a pair of Shane Cooper-Clark goals either side of half time meant that it was Bracknell who were in command of the game and seemingly headed for victory.

And a disjointed second half display from the visitors made that appear even more likely as Bassett found themselves under ever greater pressure.

However with ninety minutes on the clock Steve Yeardley headed in from a Richie Carter cross to make it 2-1.

At that stage in the game, it seemed as though the captain's fifth goal of the season would merely serve as nothing more than a consolation strike.

Yet Bassett had other ideas. They instantly forced a corner and, in desperation, filled the box with all eleven players on the pitch, 'keeper Ben Mitchell included. With a third Bracknell goal a certainty should they have been able to clear, the delivery had to be a good one.

That it was, with the ball sent to the heart of the congested penalty area where, after a brief scramble, James Skinner emerged to gleefully fire home and steal a point in a game that just minutes earlier appeared as though it would end with Bracknell taking all three.
