Langford were dealt a blow right at the death of their match against Wodson Park with their opponents scoring a 96th minute equaliser in SSML Division One.
Park kicked off on a blustery day and a bobbly pitch for what would turn out to be a poor game of football.
Langford never settled but it was Pat Daly who managed to have his early free-kick deflected wide of the Park goal.
In truth their opponents then had by far the best chances with Bussell and Babbage both scuffing shots wide with only the keeper to beat.
The football was played at a tremendous pace which led to many errors but Langford’s midfield was poor and Park were well on top having the bulk of the possession as the first half finished goalless.
Langford kicked off the second half with the wind at their backs and with a more determined approach.
Both teams missed chances and the play was scrappy. Then on 61 minutes Rhys Calvano slung in a long throw from the left and Jason Penman bought the ball down and flicked in a cross for Craig Meyrick to head home from close range for 1-0.
Park attacked but Langford’s defence stood firm in a period of the game punctuated by substitutions. However, in the 96th minute a Park corner was fired in and hit James Bishop in the face and somehow found its way into the net 1-1.
Langford’s next match is away at Chesham United Reserves in the league next Saturday.
Langford: Gardner, Calvano, Scotney, Redmond, Meyrick, Moss, Waite, Brooks, Daly, Penman, Chisholm. Subs: Ellis (used), Anderson, Downey (used), McClelland (used), Gudgin.
