A LAST-MINUTE equaliser denied Great Chishill all three points in their match at Melbourn.
With the wind at their backs, the visitors enjoyed more of the possession in the first half, and hit the front through Elliot Drury.
The veteran striker was played in by Steve McGee, and he escaped the attentions of Stuart Collen and finished with aplomb.

Chishall had chances to increase their lead, notably when Drury's shot appeared to be blocked on the line by the hand of a Melbourn defender.
However the referee turned away their penalty appeals. Jonathan Drury also went close with a 20-yard shot that rattled the crossbar.

But some stoic defending from Collen and Ashley Bryan kept Chishill at bay, and in the second period Melbourn took the game to their opponents and grabbed a late leveller.
A free kick on the edge of the area led to the ball being scrambled in at the far post past by Steve Marriott.
However, Chishill will take heart from a good performance, which they will look to build on this weekend when they host Papworth.
