Despite a late Ash Grayson header, Glapwell were held to a frustrating 2-2 draw at home to Askern FC, who had to play the final 25 minutes with ten men.

But Glapwell started and created enough chances to be in a far more comfortable position as Josh Thomas dragged an effort wide before Daniel Russell headed wide.

On 29 minutes, though, Glapwell were in front when Ash Grayson laid the ball off to Josh Thomas who curled an effort into the top corner from the edge of the area.

The lead lasted only three minutes, though, as Shaun Mundy got to the ball before Ryan Hopkins and tucked the ball home.

In the second period the visitors started to frustrate Glapwell and they went in front just before the hour when a free kick into the box broke to Jason Kearsley who hit a low effort into the bottom corner.

The visitors were reduced to ten men, though, on 65 minutes when Haydn Tomlinson was shown a second yellow card.

From there Glapwell threatened more without any real clear cut opportunities. But they levelled with eight minutes to go when hesitation at the back allowed Ash Grayson to head home from the edge of the area.

Glapwell should then have won it at the death when Grayson’s shot was parried, but Gavin Wiley could only hit the rebound straight into the grateful hands of visiting keeper Danny Jones.
