All four goals came in the opening 22 minutes, the Pedlars twice coming from behind.

The Ghosts took an eighth-minute lead when a corner was cleared as far as Karl Pask on the edge of the area, from where he rifled home.

Two minutes later a corner led to Paul Shafer equalising from close range.

But in the 22nd minute the visitors' defence stood watching from a throw-in and David Weaver-Pope ran through unchallenged to equalise for the Pedlars.
