Two late goals saw 'Nese deny Temple Fortune a league double on the 4G pitch at the Hertfordshire Sports Village in Hatfield. Before the away side grabbed a point, Fortune led 3-1 thanks to goals by Zack Rich (2) and Darren Zitren.

Fortune bos Jonathan Cohen told JC Sport: "In all honesty, I'm bitterly disappointed with the draw as I felt for long periods of the game we were comfortable and the only threat that Nese posed was shots from long range.

"We took a deserved 3-1 lead, defended resolutely and after about 15 minutes, we controlled the game until we lost of a couple of players to injury and then we were trying to hang on to the win which sadly we could not do.

"I will not criticise my players at all for their efforts and I take full responsibility. I have to say that the ref was thoroughly inconsistent for both sides and arguably cost us the points.

"To take four points from Jewdinese will seem like a good return given our position in the table but we all felt gutted.

"Overall I can't criticise my players for their level of performance since the start of 2014 - our camaraderie and spirit is superb.

"I think if you ask any side we have played since January they will tell you we are not a bottom of the table team. We have a great bunch of lads and although the results haven’t gone our way I can't wait to get going again next season with a couple of new additions."
