LONG Buckby saw their superb winning run come to an end when they dropped their first points of the season in an away draw against Holbeach United.

The 3-3 stalemate at Carters Park put the seal on an amazing run of form for the Station Road outfit.

Russ Dunkley gave the Bucks a fourth-minute lead, but Simon Underwood’s foul on Ash Stevens provided Luke Kennedy with the opportunity to level with a 16th-minute spot kick.

But only minutes later the home side were in the lead through Stevens.

The visitors were reduced to 10 men by Richard Bunting’s 65th-minute dismissal but two minutes later Fazel Koriya equalised for the visitors.

Stevens scored his second goal 15 minutes from time to restore the Tigers’ lead.

Buckby were handed an 89th-minute lifeline when David Glass was fouled but Koriya blazed over from the spot.

Then Buckby’s Dunkley salvaged a point with a point saver seven minutes into stoppage time.
