A 94th-minute goal denied Aylesbury United a point in a 4-3 defeat by Welwyn Garden City at The Meadow last night (Wednesday).

Jaedon Phillips’ first goal for Ducks had put them ahead in the 17th minute but it was 1-1 at half time.

A crazy passage of play then saw four goals in the next six minutes, as Anthony Ball marked his return from injury to re-establish the lead, only the visitors to score twice and make it 3-2, before a Mark Riddick screamer levelled matters.
