London Bari came from behind to earn a point courtesy of a 1-1 draw at home to Hullbridge Sports in the Essex Senior League.

Bari conceded the game’s opener in the 32nd minute when Luca Frankis headed in an Aaron Hunwicks corner.

Just five minutes into the second half, though, Hamit Nallbani levelled the scores for the hosts at the Old Spotted Dog.

Bari will hope they can claim all three points next weekend when they make the trip to Wadham Lodge.

Sporting Bengal United gave up a first-half lead to draw 2-2 with FC Romania in the Essex Senior League.

Mark Wheeler struck in the fifth minute for Bengal, while Steve Carvel found the net 11 minutes before the break as Bengal led 2-1 by the end of the first period.

However, Romania restored parity after the interval and with no team able to find a third goal, the game ended level.

*****

Tower Hamlets were held to a 1-1 draw away to Waltham Forest in the Essex Senior League, stretching their winless run to three matches.

Hamlets had taken the lead on the stroke of half time, but were pegged back midway through the second half.

Ade Abayomi’s men face a quick turnaround as they entertain Eton Manor at the Mile End Stadium on Monday night, where they will do everything in their power to win.
