Draw secures points

01/02/2020 Visitors HENLEY TOWN secured a point in a 3-3 draw at BARTON ROVERS. Henley started the game slowly and soon found themselves a goal behind when the Barton striker managed to tap home from close range.

The visitors gathered some momentum for 30 minutes of the first half and created a few good goal-scoring opportunities but couldn’t convert any. On the stroke of half-time Barton doubled their lead when a rebounded shot was fired home.

Henley started the second half well with Sam Earl and Dan Sykes controlling most of the ball in midfield and the visitors pulled a goal back when George Carder made a good run and fired home into the middle of the goal. Henley soon found themselves level when Jack Earl played in Charlie Douglas who finished calmly into the bottom corner.

Heading into the final 15 minutes Henley were on top and made a remarkable comeback when Jack Earl smashed home from just outside the box.

With five minutes of the match remaining Henley had appeals for a penalty turned down by the referee. Barton Rovers then won a free kick on the halfway line and as the ball was played into the box the Barton striker bundled the ball into the goal.
