THE local derby between Ely Crusaders and Fordham looked to be going all Fordham's way as they sped to a two goal lead against a Crusaders side reduced to 10-men.

A stunning individual effort from Rob Leigh provided Fordham's first goal and when Jamie Peacock put Phil Sheppard in for the second it looked like three more points for the Division's form side. 10-man Crusaders had other ideas though, and grabbed one back through a Wayne Bell header from a corner and then dramatically equalised three minutes into injury time this time courtesy of a Gav Allen headed effort. Paul Roberts was again outstanding in goal for Fordham.
