In their best performance for months a youthful Wooler side were unfortunate not to secure all three points in this thrilling match.

With only two players over the age of 21, the home team were relying on the experience of Gareth Pearson and Tristan Jeffrey to guide their teammates through the match and they were certainly up to the task.

Wooler always looked dangerous on the counter attack but it was the visitors who took the lead after 30 minutes when Karim Bentaied ‘ghosted in’ at the back post to score the opener.

In the opening exchanges of the second half the Wooler defence were put under pressure but stood firm. Wooler then drew level when Kyle Jeffrey finished from ten yards following a cross by Cowens.

The visitors were awarded a penalty after 70 minutes when Tait was alleged to have brought down Andrew Dalton but Nesbit dived smartly to his left to make a save.

Against the run of play the Bohemians restored their advantage, with 10 minutes to go when Dalton fired home from 18 yards butCowens rounded the keeper and from an acute angle saw his shot deflect off a defender and into the net for the equaliser.
