Saints were a goal up after just five minutes when George Curry’s cross from the right found Howard Forinton at the far post, who turned and fired home.

It could have been two in the tenth when Brad Rees, but he shot over from the edge of the penalty area. Brocton had a chance of their own on 15 minutes, but keeper Jamie Welsh did well to block David Berks’ shot and Chris Hayden cleared the ball out for a corner.

Passey was then brought down on the edge of the box and Jamie Coleman’s free-kick was deflected into the arms of grateful keeper Adam Whitehouse.

Forinton turned provider in the 22nd minute, crossing low to Lee Thomas to put Saints two goals up.

Josh Cole went close to making it three, but his header from a free-kick went just wide, before Brocton pulled one back from a corner in the 35th.

Saints conceded a second from a corner on 53 minutes to bring the match level.

Cole then fired over and there were chances for substitute Pawel Tomczak and Curry to snatch a win near the end, but Saints had to settle for the draw and a missed chance to make up ground on the league leaders.
