A superb comeback earned Harpenden a 2-2 draw at the end of a fiery game at Hertford.

The hosts had lost just one game so far this season in East League Division Two South and lay second at pushback.

And in a game where there was little love lost and a smattering of cards to both sides, Hertford found themselves 2-0 up with 15 minutes to play, both goals coming from deflected short corners.

However, there is plenty of character in this Harpenden side and a big effort saw them draw level.

The first goal came from Dan Burgess, who reacted quickest to a saved Reece Baker-Kiff penalty corner drag flick and hit a spectacular overhead smash.

And the second came from another penalty corner, with Baker-Kiff having more luck with this drag flick.

It leaves Harpenden in fifth place with a home game against bottom club Witham on Saturday.
