Town recovered from 2-0 down to rescue a draw in the Calor Southern League Division One Central encounter.

Rovers took a seventh minute lead through Kim Forsythe, but two minutes later they had Bobby Dance sent-off for a foul.

Despite the numerical disadvantage, Rovers added a second when Paul Andrews netted on 50 minutes.

However, Robbie Mason started the Crows’ comeback as he got on the scoresheet on 61 minutes before Dobson’s dramatic late header from a corner saw the spoils shared.
