Robbie Burton struck a late equaliser as we came from two goals down to secure a point against Fulham at London Colney.
After a tense opening 20 minutes, in which neither side could create many opportunities, the visitors edged into the lead, courtesy of an unfortunate own goal from Vontae Daley-Campbell.
Soon after, Fulham doubled their lead when Timmi Abraham was quick to react following a scramble in the box, poking the ball past Joao Virginia in goal.
In search of a route back into the game, we created a good chance for Trae Coyle, who couldn’t quite apply the finishing touch after meeting Tyreece John-Jules’ smart flick.
With just moments until the half-time break, Fulham very nearly handed us a goal when a stray pass fell to John-Jules, who was only able to drill his shot wide of the mark.
Following the break, we reduced the deficit when Xavier Amaechi blasted in from the edge of the area, adding to his collection of impressive strikes so far this season.
Now in the ascendancy and pushing for an equaliser, Coyle came close once more, this time striking the crossbar, after linking up well with Burton and Amaechi.
With the full-time whistle nearing, we drew level when Burton fired a stunning strike in following a corner.
WHAT IT MEANS
We stretch our unbeaten run to seven games, but the result leaves us six points behind league leaders Chelsea.
We travel to Anfield to face Liverpool in the FA Youth Cup fourth round next Saturday.
