After beating the Yachtsmen 3-1 on their own ground Tiptree were hoping to complete the double.

But once again chances on the Trafford Park ground were strictly rationed and with no goals at the break yet another home draw appeared possible.

Tiptree had the first clear chance when a three man move across the home box ended with Underwood free to deliver the final shot but his left-footer was pulled across the face of goal and out of play.
