JASON Cowley’s screamer helped earn Harriers a share of the spoils against York City in a 2-2 draw at Aggborough.

The on-loan striker netted with just ten minutes to go to seal the point, the second time in the evening that the hosts had come from behind.

The first goal game within just four minutes, a ball coming off the knee of Richards and into the path of Dyson, who crossed low to the far post where Woods tapped in from close range.

There was virtually one further chance apiece in the half before Harriers drew level; Austin scooped one shot over the bar and Redshaw saw one well parried by Simpson. All this came before Lowe, on 41 minutes, nodded Austin’s cross beyond a flailing Jameson and into the net.

The visitors restored their lead pretty much as swiftly in the second half as the first – this time from the penalty spot after Newton powered home a spot-kick following handball in the area by Moyo.

Harriers dug in and ensured they stayed in the game; work-rate and determination that was to prove invaluable in the last quarter-hour or so as they moved into the ascendancy. Freemantle, not long after heading over with an effort of his own, chested the ball down superbly to Cowley who drilled it beyond Jameson from outside the area.

The Harriers Academy graduate might well have won it, too, advancing with the ball out wide against three players before firing a shot across goal that dropped inches past the top of the post and wide.
