Braintree Town 2-2 Sutton United

Sutton summoned up a dramatic comeback from two down to draw 2-2 at struggling Braintree.

Jamie Collins headed against the bar from a set piece before Marcel Barrington prodded the Iron into the lead half-an-hour in when he reacted quickest to Justin Amaluzor's good run and cross down the right.

Braintree doubled their advantage in the second half when Amaluzor set up a tap-in for Billy Crook, but Sutton responded within a couple of minutes as Charlie Clough headed in from a Nicky Bailey cross.

It proved pivotal as Collins converted a late penalty to level for Paul Doswell's men.
