A DEPLETED Prudhoe Town team clinched a point from their home game with Wolviston.
Down to a 12-man squad due to widespread unavailability, they were held to a 2-2 draw despite a good performance from all present on the day.
Mattie Thompson’s pre-match preparations were disrupted by late cry-offs, but it was Town who took the lead through an excellent team goal.
Following a fluent move which involved about 10 passes in the build-up, an excellent cross from Joe Craig was met by fellow wing man Jack Barker who arrived in the area to send home a brilliantly controlled effort.
Prudhoe went into the break enjoying the one goal advantage, but they were pegged back almost immediately as stand-in goalkeeper Mick Rankin had no chance in keeping out the effort.
Things got worse for Town as they found themselves trailing, a questionably offside goal standing to put Wolviston’s noses in front.
Derek Waters came off the bench to rescue a point for Prudhoe, the midfielder keeping his cool from the penalty spot after Arron Fletcher was fouled in the area.
Prudhoe suffered a setback on Wednesday as they lost 3-1 on their travels to main rivals Annfield Plain.
The victory for Plain wasn’t enough to move them above Town, but they did close the gap to three points.
