Aaron Burns, Nantwich Town

Nantwich Town earned a hard-fought 2-2 draw away at Barwell FC.

The Dabbers took an early lead but then had to come from behind late on to secure a point in their Evo-Stik Premier League clash.

Top scorer Aaron Burns (pictured) fired Danny Johnson’s side into the lead on eight minutes.

But the hosts turned it right around in eight minutes before half-time.

First, Daniel Griffiths fired home on 37 minutes to level.

Then on the stroke of half-time, Luke Barlone was too good for Nantwich’s defence to give Barwell the lead going into the break.

Both sides had chances in the second period, but Mat Bailey took his opening well in the 71st minute to level the scores.

The visitors held on for a point which keeps Nantwich in mid-table safety, but with little chance now of making the play-offs.
