Richard Ofusu left it late to ensure London APSA picked up a point with a 1-1 draw against Newham neighbours London Bari last night at the Terence McMillan Stadium.
Sean Pusey had given the visitors a first half lead but in a second half full of chances for APSA they finally levelled when a corner was partially cleared to Ofusu and he found the net
Glody Nsamu shot wide for Bari early on, while Matthew Warren and Ofusu missed APSA’s first chances on goal.
But the hosts thought Bari should have been reduced to 10 men when Sham Darr was brought down outside the area by Bari goalkeeper Manuel Silva, though the referee opted to just caution the keeper.
And the visitors went in front when Pusey slotted past Mark Richardson for a lead they’d take into the break, despite APSA missing chances through Jagbir Birring and Vandel Nunes.
Bari seemed content with their one-goal lead, though the second half began in scrappy fashion.
Junior Konadu shot wide for APSA and substitute Anthony Thomas dragged an effort wide after Warren’s shot was blocked.
But late on Hussain’s side found the leveller when as Ofusu finally found a way past Silva for the equaliser.
APSA now switch their attention to tomorrow’s home FA Vase tie with Wellingworth Whitworth.
London APSA: Richardson, Agyekum, Hussain, Birring, Simpson, Adeyemi (Arthur 76), Ofosu, Konadu (Nyanja 60), Darr (Thomas 60), Nunes, Warren.
