St Ives Town 1, Stotfold 1

ST IVES slumped to their second consecutive home defeat, losing 2-1 to nine-man Stotfold, but the game ended in controversy.

With the score at 2-1, with just over 10 minutes to go, two Stotfold players saw red which resulted in a 10 minute delay but the referee failed to allow that time to be added on at the end of the game.

The visitors took the lead after 19 minutes through Ady Bascombe, but St Ives were back on level terms when Graeme Thackray rifled home after good work from Stefan Lewis and Dan Newman.

However, Stotfold sealed the win when Paul Harrington found the net before the chaos ensued.

* After the game, a fracas broke out at the Westwood Road ground, and the UCL authorities are investigating reports of criminal damage.
