WHITE SWAN are finding it difficult to break their Division II home-draw hoodoo.
They have drawn three of their six games so far, and two of them have been on home soil.
In their latest match against HD One, whom they beat 3-2 away two weeks earlier, they were 2-0 up but were eventually pulled back to 2-2 and forced to share the points for a third time.
Swan started in dramatic fashion with a goal after only 90 seconds when lively striker Parker was brought down in the area and got up to finish the job.
Swan pressurised the HD back line at every opportunity and when Parker side-footed home his second after only 10 minutes the points looked to be heading in only one direction.
But HD gradually managed to get a foothold into the game and equalised with two long-range strikes in a dominant 15-minute period.
The first could only be described as something of a fluke as an intended cross looped over Garrety but the second was a finely struck shot from the midfielder from 30 yards.
That proved the end of the scoring and despite both teams attacking in the second half and creating chances, the closest being when HD were awarded a penalty, but the striker shot wide.
GMB Meltham continued their good run with a 6-3 win over lowly Helion, to move up to third.
The Jagger Lane-based side went 2-0 up through goals from Taylor and Jacobs, but Helion battled back to reduce the deficit and then equalise from a penalty.
Addy then put GMB back in front and then a fine passing move ended with Taylor hitting his second and putting his side 4-2 up.
Helion pulled another goal back with a solo strike before Sykes and Addy settled the issue with further GMB strikes.
Mickey Hall (2) and Neil Lockwood scored for Helion, whose goalkeeper Chris Dalton kept the score down with some fine saves.
