WIMBORNE battled back from two goals down to lift themselves off the foot of the Southern Premier South table, drawing 2-2 at Walton Casuals.

In a classic 'game of two halves', a brace from Harry Morgan, and magnificent goalkeeping by Billy Terrell enabled a battling Wimborne to grab a point on the 3G at the Elmbridge Sports Hub in Surrey, reports Graham Dunn.

Manager James Stokoe gave starts to Callum Chugg, Jamie Henry and Mark Jamison as he shuffled his pack following a run of three league defeats.

Casuals started confidently, but found Terrell in their way.

But the hosts did lead on 27 minutes, Josh Lelan heading home.

Lewis Beale's long-range effort struck the crossbar at the other end, before Walton doubled their tally before the break.

James O'Halloran's low cross from the left was only partially cleared, allowing Rohdell Gordon in to fire home.

Walton almost added to their tally in the opening minute of the second half, Adam Liddle blazing over the crossbar.

That proved to be the turning point as Wimborne quickly pulled a goal back, when Henry's well-flighted free-kick was nodded in by Morgan.

Casuals were still a threat going forward, but Jamison, Ben Scorey and Connal Morrison all defended stoutly.

And just past the hour mark, Wimborne were level. Chugg knocked down Curtis Young's corner for Morgan to volley home from close range.

Terrell was then called back into action. The Cherries loanee produced a brilliant flying save to deny Kyel Reid's deflected free-kick, before twice thwarting Zidan Akers from close-range in stoppage time.

Wimborne move off the foot of the table with the draw, ahead of Kings Langley on goal difference.
