They enjoyed plenty of possession throughout the 90 minutes but fell behind in the first half. 6, 137 fans urged their side to come forward and kept their fingers cross for a late equaliser which duly arrived in the 86th minute. It was a lovely, warm afternoon and the nature of the comeback gave fans plenty of room for optimism going forward. Nikola Popovic’s side didn’t let their heads drop and battled admirably throughout.
