Ben Mason levelled before the break, but neither team could find a winner, as speaking to the club’s official Twitter page, Tompkins said: "Tough conditions out there today so we were always going to have to dig in deep.

"It was a bit gutting going down 1-0 so early, we did well to bounce back but we never really grew into the game enough to get that last goal.

"That’s what we’ve been struggling with recently, drawing too many games.

"Defensively I think we were spot on, they hurt us a little bit with the long throw, but we dealt with it.

"It’s just going forward, that last little bit we’re lacking.”

Manager Angelo Harrop added: “He’s (Tompkins) been outstanding, our back four were outstanding once more, as they didn’t have too many shots on goal.”
