Maidenhead salvaged a late 1-1 draw at Maidstone in their first ever National League appearance.Former Southampton midfielder Harley Willard almost got Jay Saunders’ Maidstone tenure off to a flying start, but his long-range shot could only clip the bar after beating Maidenhead goalkeeper Carl Pentney after 14 minutes.Newly-promoted Maidenhead did well to keep it goalless to the break, but Joe Pigott broke the deadlock for the hosts with a well-placed free-kick from the edge of the area after 51 minutes.
Pigott hit the bar as the hosts threatened to run away with it in the second half, but Sam Barratt headed home the equaliser from a corner with two minutes remaining.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsLive TextLine-upsMaidstone United1Worgan2HareFinney10PaxmanSubstituted forPhippsat 84’minutes8LewisBooked at 72mins14Prestedge9Sam-Yorke13Anderson22Ofori-Twumasi17WillardSubstituted forWraightat 74’minutes32PigottSubstitutesWynter11Wraight14Reason18Richards21PhippsMaidenhead United1Pentney2Clerima4Odametey8Comley6InmanSubstituted forCliftonat 67’minutes5MasseyBooked at 64mins7Tarpey9Marks14PritchardSubstituted forBarrattat 79’minutes19UpwardSubstituted forGoodmanat 80’minutes20KilmanSubstitutes11Barratt17Clifton24Goodman25Smith26MulleyReferee:Sam PurkissAttendance:2,298Live TextPosted at Match ends, Maidstone United 1, Maidenhead United 1.Full TimePosted at 90′ Second Half ends, Maidstone United 1, Maidenhead United 1.Goal!Posted at 88′ Goal!
