LITLINGTON continued their good run of form with a draw on Saturday - although after dominating most of the match will feel they should have come away with three points.
The home side started the game quickly and were soon in front when Paul Harris' cross was headed in by James Evans.
And Litlington could well have had the game won within the first half-hour, as Evans, Afser Choudhury, and Matt Saunders all squandered chances.

Harris thought he had added a second but saw his thunderous free-kick canon off the post.
Litlington went into half time leading 1-0 but knew the second half would be hard going, and they were helped somewhat when Great Chesterford were reduced to 10 men.

But the hosts still could not kill off the game, as a number of chances went begging.
Great Chetserford equalised after a quick counter attack, but Litlington continued to pile on the pressure.
And as a result the Chesterford defence was finally breached when Ian White headed home from a corner with five minutes to go.
But the lead did not last long, as Chesterford equalised almost immediately, with Litlington caught napping.
Choudhury then gave Litlington a lifeline when his great piece of skill in the Chesterford box won a penalty, but unfortunately for the hosts Harris' kick was well saved by the keeper.
