Frickley Athletic 3 Buxton 3

Super-sub Luke Hinsley was the hero for Frickley, with a stoppage-time equaliser to earn a point against Buxton.

In a topsy-turvy game, the lead changed hands several times. Buxton took the lead after eleven minutes through Mark Reed, but Jason Yates responded just two minutes later.

Chris Wood then put Frickley ahead four minutes later, with an angled shot that crept just inside the far post.

Former Blues striker Lee Morris came on for Buxton after the break, and they got back on terms in the 55th minute when another long throw by Roberts was headed in by Neil Stevens.

Reed struck again to put the Bucks in front in the 74th minute, and they looked like surviving some heavy Frickley pressure until Hinsley forced the ball in from close range in their last attack.
