BurtonAlbion ....1 Canvey Island .... 1

BURTON extended their unbeaten home run this year to eight games, but were denied victory by a Lee Boylan late goal. Dale Anderson broke the deadlock for the Brewers in the 73rd minute, but Boylan rescued a point for relegation strugglers Canvey four minutes from time. Burton made little headway until late in the first half when skipper Darren Stride swept an Andy Ducros cross inches wide of the far post.

Burton keeper Dan Crane had to produce his one testing save of the game when he got his fingertips to a Boylan free kick from just outside the area.

Anderson gave Burton the lead on 72 minutes. Ducros split the Canvey defence with a superb pass and Anderson calmly clipped his shot wide of Danny Potter from eight yards.

Victory slipped from Burton's grasp when a far-post header by substitute Junior McDougald left Boylan with a simple tap in for Canvey's equaliser.
