London Colney fought back from 2-0 down to earn a draw at St Albans City’s U21s.

The Blueboys started brightly against the Saints with both Cain Davey and Jimmy Hartley going close but then, in the space of five minutes, they found themselves 2-0 down.

Colney nearly hit back quickly after a mistake from the goalkeeper rebounded off the post.

This seemed to fire up the Blueboys up and after a great run by Hartley he saw his low drive deflected just wide of the right hand post for a corner kick.

The goal wasn’t long coming though, after another good run from Hartley saw them play the ball to Greg Shaw who, after taking a couple strides forward, let fly with a low shot from 25 yards that flew into the back of the net off the inside of the keeper’s right hand post to make it 2-1.
