IT WAS late heartbreak once again for Concord Rangers as injury time goals from 10 men Chippenham Town cancelled out strikes from Jack Thomas and Nana Kyei to ensure a 2-2 draw between the two strugglers.

It was a quiet first half in Wiltshire with both sides creating one noteworthy opportunity each.

The first fell to Chippenham after 13 minutes when a cross ricocheted to Alex Bray and the Welshman unleashed a first time volley that was beaten away at his near post by Mitchell Beeney.

Despite hardly threatening home goalkeeper Will Henry in the opening period, it was Concord who opened the scoring on the stroke of half time.

A Tosan Popo corner picked out Thomas in a pocket of space and the midfielder flicked the ball home for his first goal since joining the Beach Boys on dual registration from Bishop's Stortford in February.

The second period was also quiet but with just under 15 minutes left on the clock the game swung massively in Concord's favour.

Rangers debutant Quentin Monville committed a heavy challenge on Spencer Hamilton, a foul he was later booked for, and Chippenham's skipper reacted aggressively by shoving Monville over - and unsurprisingly the 27-year-old received his marching orders. 

Eight minutes later the Beach Boys made their man advantage count as substitute Nana Kyei doubled the visitors' lead.

A cheeky flick from Monville released Kyei in behind and the former Barnet man kept his cool, slotting the ball beyond Henry and into the bottom corner for a goal that looked to have secured a vital three points for Concord.

However as the game ticked into injury time a relentless wave of Chippenham attacks paid off.

In the first minute of six that were added Gary Horgan's side halved the deficit through Eddie Jones.

Alefe Santos laid off a free kick to Chippenham's number two and the 31-year-old rifled the ball into the bottom corner from the edge of the box for his first goal of the season.

Then in the 95th minute two subs combined for the hosts to level the scores.

Joe Parker delivered a cross to the near post and Craig Fasanmade met it; nodding the ball past Beeney for his fourth goal of the campaign.

These two strikes from the Bluebirds means that Concord have now conceded 13 goals in the final 15 minutes of games in the National League South this season.

A share of the spoils means Concord are now winless in five games against the Bluebirds as Rob Small's men remain bottom of the table.

A sixth straight draw for Chippenham stretches their winless home run to nine games in the league - a run that stretches all the way back to September.

The Beach Boys are back in action on Tuesday night as Slough Town make the trip to the Aspect Arena.
