The Bucks left it late to maintain their unbeaten home record, an 89th minute goal from close range by Henry Cowans cancelling out Connor Dimaio’s first-half opener.

County edged the first half, one in which it took both sides a while to get going. Frank Mulhern was the focal point of most of their best work, and it was a corner that he earned, forcing a save from Max Bramley, that lead to County going ahead. Bramley didn’t get a decisive punch clear, and Dimaio picked the ball up on the edge of the box, then placed a precise effort into the top right-hand corner.

County could have doubled their lead early in the second half; Mulhern’s bicycle kick from 10 yards after Darren Stephenson’s blocked effort smacked off the crossbar, then an Adam Thomas header from a corner struck the post. In between, Ben Hinchcliffe’s terrific double save denied first Darryl Knights off the crossbar, the keeper blocking Daniel Udoh’s follow-up with his face.

Gavin Cowan changed the Bucks’ formation, and on 89 minutes Cowans scored from close range after substitute Matthew Barnes-Homer’s cross ran loose in the penalty area.

Jim Gannon’s side will probably feel hard done by, having wasted early chances when on top, whilst Gavin Cowan praised his side’s patience and character to take a point.
