HPR boss David Seligman claimed he had mixed emotions after his side’s six-goal thriller with Reich Insurance Rangers.

The visitors were trailing to a Michael Pine double before Harry Roach sparked a stirring comeback.

Roach struck before the break and further goals from Jonathan Franks and substitute James Lewis completed the turnaround.

But Sammy Barron struck with 10 minutes left to earn the hosts a point – and leave Seligman wondering what could have been.

He said: "I would have taken a point before the game and when we went 2-0 down.

"But looking back I feel we could, and should, have won. We conceded a sloppy goal within minutes of taking the lead for the first time.

"That was frustrating for us as we worked so hard to get back in the game and then take control."
