A goal 13 minutes from time denied Lewes FC victory away at Leiston on Saturday.

Rooks defender Chris Breach’s third goal in consecutive games had put the visitors on course to take all three points.

But Leiston substitute Nathan Stone found the equaliser, and the same player headed a great chance for the winner wide in injury time as the points were shared.

The match came almost four years to the day since the clubs last met, when a then County League Leiston knocked Conference Premier Lewes out of the FA Cup with a 3-1 replay win at the Dripping Pan.

Saturday’s draw leaves Lewes 15th in the Ryman Premier with another long trip to Suffolk to face Bury Town on Saturday.
