A determined Oxhey Jets twice battled back from a goal down to earn a 2-2 draw with Hoddesdon Town on Saturday.

Hoddesdon took the lead with a well taken lob and should have gone two clear when they won a first half penalty.

However, the spot kick was blazed over the bar - a mistake Jets wouldn’t replicate in the 42nd minute.

Having won the spot-kick debutant Lloyd Lindo dusted himself down and calmly converted from 12 yards.

An evenly contested second period saw both sides battle for dominance before a frenetic conclusion to the game.

With three minutes to play, Town looked to have won the match as they scrambled in from close range to make it 2-1.

Jets hit back, though, and a succession of free-kicks eventually produced an equaliser as Dan Taylor peeled away and smashed high into the net.

Berkhamsted stretched their lead to four points at the summit of the South Midlands Premier Division to four points with a 1-1 draw against Crawley Green.

The title favourites will wonder how they failed to win as they created a number of chances but failed to capitalise.

Berko did take the lead with 15 minutes played as John Munday scored his eighth goal of the season.

Berko looked set to extend their winning run to eight games, but were left to rue a late lapse in concentration as they conceded a free-kick which was put away by Terry Billy.

Tuesday night saw Berko make an instant return to winning ways as they took on local rivals Tring Athletic in the Herts Charity Shield.

Goals inside half an hour from Ashton Campbell and Adam Mead put Berko 2-0 up before Tring hit back to make it 2-1 at full-time.

Tring could at least take some solace from a strong showing on Saturday, which saw them claim a 2-0 win over St Margaretsbury.

Against their fellow strugglers, Tring were in need of a victory in what was dubbed a six-pointer.

Tring’s win owed much to the work of Elliot Goward who netted both goals.

The first of which saw him pick up possession and burst through the centre of the Saints defence before calmly finishing.

Goward added to his tally and effectively killed the game in the 74th minute, turning smartly in the box and firing home in emphatic fashion.

Tring remain in the relegation zone, but the win takes them to within a point of 19th-placed Saints after 13 games.

Finally, London Tigers were not match for Leverstock Green and were comfortably beaten 3-0 as Green moved three points clear of their rivals.

Green started the game brightly and made the most of their early control to ease to a2-0 lead inside 23 minutes.

Ross Adams got the ball rolling after ghosting in behind the Tigers backline and scoring from a tight angle.

Matt Bateman then added a second after carrying the ball from the halfway line and firing home from the edge of the box.

Green put the result beyond doubt with 10 minutes remaining when Johnathan Lacey tapped into an empty net.
