CRAIG Fasanmade netted a stoppage-time equaliser for Chippenham Town on Saturday as the Bluebirds drew 1-1 with struggling Hungerford Town in National League South.

Chippenham had not played in three weeks, but there was no rust on show in the first half as Gary Horgan's men laid siege to Jed Ward's goal.

A number of shots flew off target or needed to be blocked, but the best opportunity of the opening period fell the way of Harry Parsons.

The Swindon striker latched on to Leighton Tuodolo's throw before smashing an effort against the bar.

Hungerford's Ryan Jones cleared off the line as Chippenham unsuccessfully searched for an equaliser before the break.

Despite a positive first 45, the start of the second could not have gone much worse for the Bluebirds.

Following Will Tizzard's withdrawal through injury, bottom side Hungerford went in front as Joel Rollinson tapped home Dan Roberts' cross.

Will Henry prevented the scorer from netting again shortly after the hour, and the Bluebirds stepped up their assault on Ward's goal.

With five minutes to play, Jones was sent off after picking up his second yellow card, and Hungerford were left with their backs against the wall for the remainder.

Chippenham made the most of the man advantage deep into added time, when Fasanmade - who has struggled with injuries since arriving - reacted quickest to poke home following a scramble in the box.

The Bluebirds remain 20th and above the relegation zone on goal difference with 25 points.
