ANOTHER below par performance from St Peter's resulted in a 2-2 draw with Kimpton Rovers on Saturday.
The game got off to a flying start with Kimpton scoring with just a minute on the clock.
The Saints responded immediately though drawing level just a minute later as Sam Lyon headed home Joel Norris' corner.
Both sides went in search of more goals with Kimpton goalkeeper Russell Paine producing some excellent saves to keep his side in the game.
Quick breaks caught out the Saints on several occasions and they were punished when Paul Barnes slotted home.
However the Saints again responded instantly with Norris finishing to ensure a share of the spoils.
An injury hit Saints travelled to in-form Sarratt on Monday coming away with an impressive 1-1 draw.
The Saints turned in a much improved performance though there were few goalscoring opportunities in the opening period.
Just as the Saints thought they would be taking a point home the visitors opened the scoring with a scrappy goal.
Twice the Saints hit the woodwork as their search for an equaliser looked to be in vain.
Then with the game in the dying minutes, a long throw from Adam Potter found Norris who thundered the ball home to earn the Saints a point.
This weekend the Saints travel to Walkern Rangers (KO 3pm).
