Hutchings, Baines (S. Brown), Spetch, Emmerson, Walker, Richardson (Wilson), Kelly (Burbidge), Devlin, Lammali, Preston, Brooks
Five minutes remaining and the clock ticking, a Karim Lammali strike was enough for Poole Town to rescue their FA Trophy dreams as they secured a replay against Bashley.
After the away side’s failure to close the game out, a break from defence and a long range shot by Keith Emmerson was parried by Stuart Moore to fall into Lammali’s path to score.
The striker’s finish cancelled out Bashley’s early second half goal which came through an own goal from Marvin Brooks.
A dangerous free-kick caused panic and confusion inside the home side’s box where an Ian Richardson header deflected off the midfielder.
In a tale of two halves, a draw is a fair reflection on the game which proved scrappy at some stages with both teams wasting good chances.
The home side had the better of the first half with the threat coming from the Steve Devlin’s set pieces but the chance of the half fell to Lammali.
The Algerian striker disposed the centre back of possession to run clear with an 18 yard strike going past the goalkeeper’s left hand post.
Although the travelling neighbours didn’t control the half they still created a few chances for themselves, mainly through poor defensive errors.
Will Spetch was caught in possession by Charlie Knight who went one-on –one with Nick Hutchings to only miss the target.
Poor defending and the failure to track their man gave the ultimate chance to Frank Gray’s men the ideal smash and grab half.
A cross from the left saw James Stokoe eyeballing the Poole goalkeeper from four yards out, when it was harder to miss than it was to score.
Bashley must have had a rollicking at half time as they came out a different side and were unlucky not to be two or three up by the time Tom Killick’s men equalised.
The Dolphins rallied in the final ten minutes and put the opponents defence under pressure to defend which invited the chance to score the crushing equaliser.
The New Forest side will be disappointed with the late equaliser but Poole Town will take heart from their snatch and grab half to inspire them in the replay on Tuesday.
