Colney Heath battled to a point against Cockfosters in an incredible match that saw five red cards.

Three of them went to the Magpies, Jack Woods and Spencer Clarke-Mardel receiving theirs after a scuffle at half-time, while Chris Blunden’s dismissal came after he had bagged the equaliser in the 1-1 draw.

The half-time melee began as the players walked off the pitch amid accusations of spitting by one of the Cockfosters players.

The referee delayed his action until the teams re-emerged with Woods and Clarke-Mardel, as well as the visitors’ Jamie Stephens, all getting straight reds.

Pat Campbell of Cockfosters received a yellow too.

The goals arrived before the next set of cards, Mark Summers scoring first before Blunden finished from a tight angle after being set-up by Dan Westmore.

Summers was then sent off for a second yellow card while Blunden got another straight red after he and Campbell squared up to each other.
