Grant helps Swifts grab a point
Henery and Jackson on target as Planters come back twice
Norwich United 2 Heybridge Swifts 2
Ryman League North Division
The Planters diminishing play-off hopes were dented by relegation threatened Heybridge Swifts who twice led through Reece Grant.
Grant headed home at the far post, when a corner was flicked on, to give the visitors a 13th minute lead but the Planters were level within a minute through Tim Henery
who scored his fourth goal in two games, combining with Nathan Stewart
before curling a left foot strike into the top corner from the edge of the area.
Grant shot home after Adam Yusuff’s shot was blocked to help Swifts regain the lead in the 19th minute but Liam Jackson
slotted into the bottom corner from the spot ten minutes later following a high foot in the area.
With both sides cancelling each other out for the remainder of the game both sides had to settle for a point, a result which suited neither team. The Planters are now four points behind the final play-off place with just two games remaining.
