  • Spenny started the second half brightly and Andrew Johnson stabbed an effort wide at the near post.
  • At the other end new signing Raheem Hanley had a run at the defence before firing wide across the face of goal.
  • Bulls striker Rowan Liburd had an opening just before the hour as a long ball fell down nicely for him, but he volleyed wide.
  • After showing warning signs the leveler eventually came in the 61st minute when Martin Riley was beaten on the left wing and the ball was cut back inside for Johnson to fire home.
  • Substitute Bradley Ash almost responded immediately after he connected with Nicholson's shot, but his effort was off-target.
  • Another defensive error led to the visitor's second when Jordan Cullinane-Liburd was muscled off the ball and Taylor fired home.
