Essex Senior League: Sporting Bengal United 2 London Bari 2

There was late drama in the Essex Senior League tie between Sporting Bengal United and London Bari on Wednesday night, as both teams struck in stoppage time at the Mile End Stadium.

A crowd of 75 were in attendance to watch the derby, and Bengal took the lead in the 34th minute through Abdi Samad, whose shot from the edge of the area took a deflection on its way in.

United had numerous chances to extend their lead before Bari drew level for the first time after a defensive mix-up in the Sporting defence allowed the visitors the chance to equalise.

As the match ticked into time added on at the end of the second half, the hosts thought they had won it Shiblu Miah rifled home from 18 yards.

But with time almost up, another lapse in concentration at the back by Bengal saw Bari equalise for the second time, with the spoils shared.
