Burgh drop points in eight-goal thriller

Burgh Town 4

North Cotes 4

Burgh Town dropped valuable points in their quest for league honours on Saturday, when they were held by lowly North Cotes at Marsh Lane in the East Lincs Combination Division Four.

Town raced to a two-goal lead within the first 20 minutes, with Darren Murphy and Jordan Houlston netting for the home side.

But the visitors turned things round to lead by the odd goal in five at the interval.

Donovan Vickers headed Burgh level and Houlston grabbed his second to put Town back in front.

There was just five minutes left on the clock when North Cotes netted the equaliser to share the points in an eight-goal thriller.
