Trailing 3-1 after Waide Fairhurst (8), Aaron Martin (65) and Daniel Grimshaw’s 70th-minute penalty put the hosts in control, Neil Reynolds’ side left it late to claim a draw.

And four minutes from time, Regan Linney made it 3-3.

In the National League, AFC Fylde lost 1-0 at home to Leyton Orient.
