Manager Jimmy Brattan believes Huntingdon Town produced their best performance of 2018 last Saturday.

That was the way he described a richly deserved 3-3 draw at third-placed Raunds Town in United Counties League Division One.

Jonny Hall hit an equaliser in the first half with his first Town goal and leading scorer Corey Kingston then put them ahead in the second period.

But the hosts replied with two goals of their own to hit the front again before substitute Antonio Dello Russo drew Town level - and only a post denied them victory when Kingston threatened again in the closing stages.

“The lads showed real character to come from behind twice and get a draw against a side pushing for promotion,” said Brattan.

“The work-rate was incredible and the togetherness on the pitch was phenomenal. It’s our best result since the turn of the year and it gives us real belief for the rest of the season.

“It also highights that we can compete with any team in this league when we have close to a full squad available.”
