Last-gasp agony for Caister

PUBLISHED: 15:16 16 March 2012

Caister 1 Horsford 1

Caister were deprived of maximum Anglian Combination Division One points as in-form Horsford equalised with the last kick of the game at Allendale Road.

The first half was a tight affair but as the half went on Caister started to dominate and had a great chance when Hack went through one on one but the Horsford keeper saved well. Fitzgerald also saw his shot saved from a tight angle.

Striker MacMillan was introduced with 30 minutes remaining. On 75 minutes he produced a stunning volley to put the home side one up.

Macmillan and Hack both then had chances to put the game safe but were thwarted by the Horsford keeper.

Deep into injury time Blake was controversially ajudged to have handled the ball and from the resulting set-play Flaxman made a superb save.

With the last touch of the game the Horsford substitute headed home to earn a point.

MoM: Matt Lines. Next game away to Horsford (meet Allendale 12.30).
