Clapton clawed their way back to nick a 2-2 draw with two second-half goals against Waltham Forest.
The Tons picked up a second draw in a row after the visitors dominated the first-half and went in 2-0 up.
Forest’s Bradley Harris whipped in a corner and Nathan Okoye bundled it in at the back post to make it 1-0.
Harris set up his side’s second as well as he whipped in a free kick, Juelmo Agebane headed it down and Germaine Dua got a touch, but it was Clapton’s skipper Steven Sardinha who sliced it into his own net to give the visitors a 2-0 lead.
Clapton clawed one back when Forest’s goalkeeper Mohammed Ahmed came off his line to head a loose ball out, failing to make it back he was lobbed from a 50 yard from Sardinha.
Audre Spencer then got the hosts back on the level terms as he converted at the back post to make it 2-2.
