A DETERMINED second half display by 10-man Lads Club saw them come from two goals down to take a 2-2 draw with local rivals Hereford Pegasus.

The outcome looked bleak for Danny Moon's side after Liam Jones was shown red in the first half before Miles Langford netted a brace.

However, a change of tactics and a passionate performance saw Alex Lancett score twice to earn Lads Club a draw.

"It was a change of formation and I got every ounce of energy out of all of them," said Moon.

"They gave it their all and we could have edged it at the end with Jamie Cuthbertson's header.

"We never got started early on and Pegasus were better in the first 15 minutes.

"The opening goal was coming and we were dealt a double whammy with the sending off.

"After the second goal we had a 10 minute spell before the break where we were the better side and we did the best we could with what we had."

Pegasus started brightly and deserved their 16th minute opener from the penalty spot.

Liam Jones was given a red card for a handball and Langford dispatched the penalty.

The hosts then looked to take control of the tie and Langford rounded the goalkeeper to double their lead on 36 minutes.

However, the 10 men of Lads Club responded and switched to playing three at the back in pursuit of a second half comeback.

Their bravery was rewarded eight minutes later when Alex Lancett pulled a goal back before Olly Price went close.

Peggy were also looking to restore their two-goal advantage and a second penalty by Langford was this time saved by Steven Bell.

At the other end Adam Hockey shot wide before Lancett pulled his side level.

Bell was forced to make several saved to keep Lads Club level and James Fennessy cleared an effort off the line.

Moon's side would have a chance to win the tie, but Jamie Cuthbertson headed just wide.

"We were a lot better in the first half and before they went down to 10 men we were dominating before that," said Pegasus joint manager Mick Panniers.

"After half-time they went three up top and went longer behind us.

"As a game with the momentum you could see them coming back into it.

"I have got to to say their passion and desire to come back from that was special.

"I felt if we could have weathered the storm we would be okay as they were going to have their time in the game.

"But we didn't control it well enough and should have gone long ourselves and played the game more in their half."
