The game started with end to end action, but Brigg’s keeper, Tom Woodhead was the first to be in action, being alert to hold a Deon Meikle effort.
Belper took the lead after 17 minutes, when Jamie Smith beat the onrushing Tom Woodhead, and lobbed the ball into an empty net.
Almost immediately Brigg came close to equalising, when Bruno Holden chased a long ball down the middle, but was bundled over by his marker Matty Plant.
Brigg continued to battle for the equaliser, and had two good penalty shouts turned down, but it was Belper who had the better chances to increase their lead.
The home team did make it 2-0 after 63 minutes, when Jon Froggatt, unmarked at the far post, headed in a cross from the left.
Within three minutes, Brigg reduced the arrears, when Lee Roy Cochrane head in a pinpoint cross from Alan Lamb
. This goal lifted the Zebras, and they deservedly equalised after 73 minutes, when a floated effort from Alex Flett, deceived the home keeper, and nestled in the back of the net.
The impetus was now with Brigg, who played the better football, restricting Belper to long balls out of defence, but there were no more goals and both teams picked up their first point of the season.
