Match Report

TONY STOKES? sumptuous injury-time equaliser rescued a point for Concord, writes Jack Smith.

The Magpies looked to have stolen all three points as they came from behind to go 2-1 up in the 90th minute.

But Beachboys skipper Stokes, a 79th minute substitute, had other ideas has he brilliantly controlled Jeremy Walker?s long ball over the top with one touch before lobbing advanced keeper Elvijs Putnins for a share of the spoils.

Concord had taken a 15th-minute lead through Lewis Taaffe when he finished from Gary Ogilvie?s cut back.

But Taaffe?s day then went downhill when he was shown a red card for an elbow on Simon Downer.

The visitors made their advantage count and equalised just after the hour mark when substitute Dave Tarpey reacted first to the rebound at the near post after a good initial save from Aaron Lennox.

Concord responded well and then referee Robert Massey-Ellis made it 10-men aside when he sent off Reece Tison-Lascaris for an off-the-ball clash with Danny Glozier.

It seemed to spur Maidenhead on and they thought they had won it when Tarpey added his second goal in the last minute by poking the ball home after a weak punch away from Lennox.

But then Stokes produced his moment of magic and Joe Gardner went close to winning it for Concord at the death, but he put his effort narrowly wide.
