St Albans City survived two sending offs and a flurry of bookings inside the last 10 minutes to come away from Vanarama National League South league leaders Maidenhead United with a 1-1 draw.

Ben Martin and Junior Morias were the men who ended the game early, both for two yellow cards.

The dismissals came moments after Shaun Lucien had curled in a delightful free-kick to cancel out Harry Pritchard’s 61st minute opener.

The incident-packed game also saw three goals disallowed; two for the hosts and one for for City.

Photographer Leigh Page captured the action from York Road.

Saints are next in action tomorrow (Tuesday) at home to near-neighbours Hemel Hempstead Town.

Kick-off at Clarence Park is at 7.45pm.
