In a very keenly-contested game Eastfield were fortunate to go in goalless at the half-time break as Cayton looked a constant threat, only fine saves from stand-in goalkeeper, player-boss Chris Milburn kept United from being two or three goals down.

Eastfield paid for some mistakes in the second half as Cayton took a two-goal lead through efforts from Brad Atkinson and Si Coupland.

United fought back with two late headers from Jamie Hartley to earn a share of the spoils.
