Heanor Town picked up a point in a 1-1 draw against Worksop Town in front of a crowd of 300 last weekend.

Adie Hawes opened the scoring midway through the half, only for Jonathan Wafula to equalise just before the break.

Heanor opened with a string of chances, as Gary Ricketts fired wide before Kieran Wells headed over.

Their persistence paid off on 21 minutes when the ball found its way to Hawes, who forced his header into the top corner.

Heanor then had to thank Ian Deakin after he pulled off a top save to deny Andre Johnson.

Soon after though, Wafula fired past Deakin to draw level.

The second half was as tight a match as the first half had proven to be.

The Worksop defence was being well-marshalled by Luke Shiels, who stood firm to the trickery of Heanor’s Wells and the returning Debrouwer.

Chances came for Worksop’s Mitcham Husbands and Johnson but Deakin stood firm to keep the scores level.

Sam Jones had a glorious opportunity to take the points for Heanor midway through the second half, but his effort saw the ball just clear the crossbar.

Late into the game Deakin produced a top save to deny Jack Waddle.

• Goals from Wells, Nick Hall and Nathan Benger sealed a 3-0 win at Armthorpe Welfare last Tuesday.
