Leiston boss Glenn Driver was pleased with a point on Saturday.

The Blues had to twice come from behind to get anything from a scintillating game against play-off chasing Dulwich Hamlet.

Driver said: “We had to come from behind twice against a top Dulwich side who passed the ball very well.

“They put us on the back foot a lot in the second half, but I thought we deserved a point.

“We had to hang in there at times and Jacob (Marsden) pulled off a world-class save, but it’s definitely a point gained for us.”

Matt Blake’s goals - his 33rd and 34th of the season - saw Leiston grab a share of the spoils, and Driver said: “He’s a goalscorer, his work-rate alongside Niko Muir’s is superb. If we can keep them fit, I think we can keep in and among the play-offs.”

Leiston host Folkestone Invicta tomorrow evening.
