Martin had a header from a Fin Byrnes corner headed off the line before Wood regained the lead. Byrnes’ free-kick was headed clear but Dan Gayner wasted no time in hammering the ball home.

The game swung from end-to-end and with three minutes to go, Jack Hill shot across Wright into the comer and almost immediately the impressive Humphreys scored the winner with a shot from the edge of the area.
