GALLERY: Gutsy March Town United fight back to claim thrilling 3-3 draw
MARCH Town United fought back from conceding two goals in the first 20 minutes to claim a thrilling 3-3 draw with Whitton United.
The Hares, who are yet to record a competitive win under new boss Paul Crosbie, produced a gutsy display in Saturday’s Thurlow Nunn First Division clash at the GER.
Olly Cooper toasted his first start by hauling a goal back for March before the break but Whitton restored their two-goal advantage early in the second half.
However, Crosbie’s troops fought back again as a Stu Anderson penalty and a 25-yard strike from Sean White rescued a precious point.
The Hares boss, who watched his side clear balls off the goal line twice in the closing stages, admitted he was delighted to salvage a draw but continued to express defensive concerns.
“I’m pleased with the fight back but we are still conceding sloppy goals,” he said.
March host bottom-of-the-table Cornard United, who are yet to record a point, on Saturday.
