AFC EMLEY were left to rue missed chances when they were held to a 3-3 draw by Northern Counties East League Division I side Rossington Main.
The visitors to the Welfare Ground started like a house on fire and went 2-0 up inside 11 minutes with goals by Carl Hastie on five minutes and Ian Hemmingway on 11.
But Emley suddenly woke up and began to dominate, enjoying large spells of possession as they clawed their way back into the game.
Lee Hill was on target on 25 minutes and a Gavin Birmingham strike ensured that it was all square at the break.
Rossington regained the advantage on 51 minutes when Hastie added a third but Phil King cancelled out the visitor’s lead when he replied for Emley to make it 3-3.
Emley forced seven consecutive corners within 10 minutes as they went in search of a winner and, despite hitting a post and forcing the goalkeeper into making two point-blank saves, Emley were left frustrated at not being able to turn their superior possession into a victory.
Emley, who are 10th in the 17-team section, travel to sixth-placed Leeds Met Carnegie, who play at Farsley Celtic’s Throstle Nest, on Saturday (3.00).
In the Premier Division, Liversedge moved up to fifth after a 2-0 victory at mid-table Eccleshill United.
