Worthing led 1-0 in the Isthmian premier through a Jasper Pattenden goal in the dying minutes only for Tom Wraight to level. Adam Hinshelwood's team's lead at the top of the Isthmian premier was cut to four points by Enfield.

Lewes, who are in the Isthmian premier play-off places, were also held - they led Brightlingsea 2-0 after 12 minutes through two Joe Taylor goals but Regent claimed a point with a goal in each half, the second nine minutes from time.
