The away side piled the pressure on after the break and were beginning to create chances. They looked certain to level at the back post before Ollie Woodhouse somehow flicked the ball over his own crossbar to preserve the lead. Farm were carrying a threat on the break despite being under a bit more pressure. George Kellow was set to strike from inside the area before a brilliant tackle sprang a counter, resulting in a fine save by Locke. Farm’s resistance was broken in what the home side thought was controversial circumstances. A ball to the back post found Harry Morgan and with almost every Farm player expecting an offside flag, it didn’t arrive, and the game was level. Worse was yet to come for Farm as they conceded yet another late goal at home. A trip in the area resulted in a penalty and Morgan got his brace and his team’s three points.
