JAMIE O'Hara was left raging after Billericay Town threw away a two-goal lead in an action-packed 3-3 draw with Tonbridge Angels.

Although Tonbridge took the lead early in the second half, goals from Jake Robinson, Femi Akinwande and Alfie Potter put Town on course for three points.

However, Angels hit back with two late goals to snatch a share of the spoils and Billericay player-manager O'Hara was livid after seeing his side fail to triumph in the National League South contest.

"I'm raging and it's soul-destroying," said O'Hara.

"We did great again and showed great character to get back into the game after going behind.

"We kicked on and went 3-1 up but we just cannot see a game out.

"No matter who I put on, what formation I play or what tactics we have, at the end of the day, it's around the penalty area that you have got to die for the team.

"We are conceding goals too easily and something has to change.

"We have players like Femi, Jake and Alfie dying for the team, giving us goals and energy.

"They did their job and the back four's job is to keep the ball out of the net. I've never known anything like it."

After a goalless first half, Tonbridge quickly opened the scoring through Jason Williams.

However, Billericay responded and, within three minutes, were level as Robinson rifled home from the penalty spot.

The clash was quickly turned on its head as Akinwande gave Billericay the lead.

And Potter put daylight between the two sides as four goals were scored within the opening 11 minutes of the second half.

However, two goals in the space of three minutes - as Williams doubled his tally and Christ Tiehi netted - allowed Tonbridge to leave New Lodge with a point.

And, while he was happy to see Billericay maintain their season-long unbeaten run at home in the National League South, O'Hara admitted conceding cheap goals was hard to take.

O'Hara added: "I was very confident that we would get the three points after we went 3-1 up.

"I never feel like we're going to lose a game.

"I'm confident we're going to get something out of the game no matter what happens.

"That's why it's soul-destroying because you can't put your finger on what's going wrong. It's hard to take."
