Potters Bar Town will feel it was two Southern League points dropped on Saturday as they drew 1-1 at home with Beaconsfield SYCOB.

The hosts started assuredly and took the lead on 24 minutes.

Ashley Nathaniel-George challenged the keeper and right back to a ball in from the right with the final touch coming off Callum Mapley for an own goal.

The home side continued to ask the questions of the visitors’ defence without creating clear cut opportunities.

The second half continued in the same vein with Bar on the front-foot.

They were unable to add a second and were made to pay when a cross was dropped by keeper Berkley Laurencin at the feet of centre forward Aaron Berry who slotted home the equaliser.

The Scholars remain eighth in the Division One Central and seven points off the play-offs with six games remaining. On Saturday they face Bedford Town at home.
