CONCORD Rangers fought back from conceding two early goals to salvage a 2-2 draw at Hemel Hempstead Town.

Arel Amu and Frankie Musonda had handed Hemel a two-goal lead inside the opening 12 minutes at Vauxhall Road.

But the Beach Boys responded with goals from Aron Pollock and Joan Luque in the space of two second half minutes.

Concord travelled to Hemel aiming to give their hopes of reaching the National League South play-offs come the end of the season a boost, but they fell behind inside five minutes as Amu was on hand to slot home after Sam Beasant had made the initial save.

And matters got worse for Sammy Moore’s side as Musonda was allowed time and space on the edge of the penalty area to pick his spot and give Hemel a two-goal cushion.

Concord came close to registering a quick response, but they were denied by a goal-line clearance.

The Tudors’ claims for a penalty, following a suspected handball, were waved away by the referee before the home side saw numerous inviting chances to put the game to bed go begging.

And Hemel were made to pay for those missed opportunities as Pollock gave Concord hope by sending an unmarked header into the back of the net with 58 minutes on the clock.

The Beach Boys drew level just two minutes later as Luque was on hand to tap home from six yards out.

Amu should have restored Hemel’s lead when he was put through on goal, but the frontman fired wide of the target.

Concord could have snatched all three points late on, but home goalkeeper Laurie Walker was alert to the danger and made a fine save to ensure it would finish honours even.
