TADCASTER Albion began life after manager Paul Quinn with a 2-2 draw at home to Worksop Town, writes Olly Wood.

Former assistant manager Steve Waide took interim charge of the Brewers for the first time following Quinn's departure to Sky Bet Championship giants Sheffield United, which was announced last week.

It appeared as if a long night was on the cards for Tadcaster as Worksop gained the lead after just six minutes.

Albion goalkeeper Harrison Davison-Hale was forced into a smart save in the opening minute to deny Cody Cormack but he could not stop Aleksandros Starcenko's long-range half volley from range.

Midway through the first half, Town almost doubled their lead as Lewis Gibbons was given a free header from six yards out, which he could only put over the crossbar.

Tadcaster though got stronger and the half wore on and Donald Chimalilo headed wide just before the break.

Buoyed by their first-half finish, less than 10 minutes after the hosts were level.

Chimalilo expertly picked out the top corner with a brilliant curling effort after good work in the build up from Des Amponsah.

And, not long after the hour mark, the game was turned on its head as Tadcaster took the lead.

The impressive Marco Basic powerfully found the corner with his strike after he drove at the defence and was able to get a shot away.

Worksop however continued to threaten on the break and so it proved shortly afterwards.

Aaron Sennett-Neilson managed to find space on the edge of the box and his low drive drew the visitors level.

Both sides had strong chances to claim all three points before the finish, though they would each have to settle for a share of the spoils.

Tricky feet from Chimalilo teed up captain Simon Russell, whose effort struck team-mate Romario Vieira.

And moments later, Davison-Hale was at full stretch in a superb late save.

Elsewhere in the Pitching In Northern Premier League east, Pickering Town also drew 2-2 against nine-man Brighouse Town.

Goals in either half from Laurance Sorhaindo and Javelle Clarke put Brighouse in front but new Pikes recruit Alhassane Keita reduced the deficit.

With ten minutes remaining, Brighouse's Brett Souter and Danny Racchi were sent off and Pickering won two penalties in the space of three minutes, both of which Wayne Brooksby was unable to convert.

But in added time Devonte Morton earned a point for the hosts with a late strike.

Meanwhile in the NCEL League Cup, Selby Town were knocked out after suffering a 4-0 defeat at North Ferriby FC.
