Bethnal Green United concede last-minute equaliser to Eton Manor
United blow lead and drop two points at Mile End Stadium
BETHNAL GREEN United threw away two points after conceding a last-gasp equaliser against Eton Manor last night (Wednesday).
The Greens were 2-1 up after Isaac Aubynn had struck what seemed to be a 94th minute winner, but with seconds remaining a long range effort was mis-handled by goalkeeper Stephen Wright as their east London rivals shared the spoils.
“I’m very disappointed and heartbroken,” boss Justin Gardner said.
“We should have won 15-3, we wasted too many chances and I am fed of having to say that.

Aubynn proved to be a super sub as he came off the bench to head from a Mark O’Toole cross, before scoring what everyone thought was the winner deep into injury time.
It took less a minute for Manor reply as United left Mile End Stadium with just a point.
