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.
