Injury-time strike denies Iron

Braintree Town 3 Bath City 3

BATH’S Lee Phillips grabbed a 94th minute equaliser, as Iron threw away a 3-1 lead.

Bath went ahead when Gethin Jones netted after just three minutes, with a looping header.

But Iron hit back with goals from Ben Wright and Mark McCannon before the break.

When Matt Paine made it 3-1 in the 48th minute, there only appeared one winner.
