Watch highlight's from Saturday's 2-2 draw between Concord Rangers and Maidenhead United.

Tony Stokes denied the Magpies their third straight win in the league with a beautiful lob from the angle in Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Concord Rangers.  

Substitute Stokes came off the bench to score with a sumptuous 92nd minute lob that left Magpies’ keeper Elvjis Putnins rooted to the spot.

Sixty seconds earlier Maidenhead thought they’d won it when Dave Tarpey tapped home after Aaron Lennox failed to gather a high ball in the box.

Concord led in the 15th minute when Lewis Taafe fired past Putnins after good work on the wing from Ogilvie, but the player turned villain in the 42nd minute when he leapt for a high ball and appeared to elbow Mark Nisbet. The referee reached straight for the red card and Taafe went off for an early bath.

Cawley, could, possibly should have made it 2-0 after the break, but scooped his shot over the bar before Tarpey scored United’s leveller after his initial shot came back to him off the post in the 63rd minute.

The referee evened up the dismissals when Reece Tison-Lascaris was dismissed following an altercation with Danny Glozier by the touchline, and with 10 against 10 there was plenty of space on the field for both sides to threaten.

United looked like snatching the points when Tarpey swept home following Lennox’s error in the 90th minute, but those hopes were quashed by Stokes’ expertly judged chip less than a minute later to leave it all square.
