Joint manager Karly Hurst said: "It was great to see the local people come back to the club and it's a shame we couldn't get the right result. If we'd have taken our chances in the second half we'd probably have gone on to win and I think we deserved a point overall.

"I'd like to say a big thank you to the crowd for their turnout."
