BROADBRIDGE Heath gave Sussex County league Division 3 leaders Saltdean an almighty scare on Tuesday night.

Goals from Dan Attwater, when he headed home a corner from debutant Joe Chandler, and Miles Hamilton, who volleyed in Jamal Sultan’s cross, had Saltdean on the rack, but two strikes in the last eight minutes hauled the home side level.

It was Heath’s third game in six days, and manager Steve Painter was delighted with the display. “You never like conceding two goals in seven minutes but to be fair to Saltdean, they deserved a draw.

“Full credit to our lads, if we play like that we will be up there at the end of the season.”

BBH (4-5-1): McBride; Chester, Attwater, Flack, Eggleton; Wood, Arthur, Aherne, Chandler, Sultan; Hamilton.
