Histon pegged back late on during drawn clash with Premier Division South leaders Racing Club Warwick

Histon had to settle for a 1-1 draw after being pegged back two minutes from time during last weekend’s home encounter against high-flying Racing Club Warwick.

The hosting Stutes went into the break with a slender advantage courtesy of Jim Burnside, who unleashed a volley from outside of the box that went in via the underside of the crossbar.

It was the striker’s fourth goal in eight appearances for the club, having joined soon after the arrival of manager Chris Nunn.

And it appeared that was going to be the winning moment until the 88th minute when visiting forward Joshua Parsons’ acrobatic effort wrong-footed Sam Roach in the Histon goal.

Nunn told the club’s social media channels: “The workrate and energy was at times incredible. The boys worked their socks off.

“We played against a very good team and anyone watching would have struggled to know who was top and who was 16th. We continue to go in the right direction but still have so much work to do.”

Histon, who have lost just one of their last six Premier Division South games, are at Easington Sports on Saturday (20 January).
