Tring Athletic came from behind to earn a point in a surprising tetchy 1-1 draw against Stotfold on Tuesday night.

The visitors have never won in Tring, but they have shown a bit of form recently and they took the lead from a corner in the 55th minute.

However, Athletic battled to get back in the game and Chris Stapleton fired home an equaliser nine minutes from time.

Both sides had opportunities to win the game in the closing stages and both keepers pulled off some fine saves, but in the end the points were shared.

Next up for Tring is a trip to Hoddesdon Town on Saturday for an SSML Premier Division clash. The game kicks-off at 3pm.
