Jersey Scottish draw with 10-man Jersey Wanderers

Football

Premiership leaders Jersey Scottish fought back from two goals down to grab a 2-2 draw at 10-man Jersey Wanderers.

The hosts went ahead through Chris Andrews and Joe Murphy goals but had Dave McEvoy sent off for kicking out.

Ali Santos netted in the second half before a Matt Rawlings penalty levelled it to extend the Scots' unbeaten league record.

But this was the first Jersey Premiership game they have failed to win this season.

Scottish joint manager Paul Brannan told BBC Radio Jersey: "We're delighted with that point today especially with the first half.

"Going two goals behind we gave ourselves an absolute mountain to climb.

"Come the end of the season this point is going to be huge for us we think."

Elsewhere St Peter have gone second in the table, four points off top, thanks to a 1-0 win over First Tower United.

Reigning champions St Paul's beat Trinity 4-1, while St Ouen and Grouville battled out a 2-2 draw.
