Eastbourne Borough 1-1 Concord Rangers
Danny Scopes was clearly delighted with his sides’ toil in earning a share of the Vanarama National League South spoils at play-off hopefuls, Eastbourne Borough.
“We can enjoy the rest of the weekend, but we never get too carried away with a win or a draw, just as we don’t overreact to a defeat,” the Beach Boys boss told Yellow Sport.
James Blanchfield’s last-minute strike cancelled out Greg Luer’s opener to deny the hosts a fourth-successive league victory while edging themselves further away from the foot of the table.
“I think we can take some pride as a group,” Scopes added.
“We’ve been a part for some time, coming back together for training on Thursday evening. We had some new faces and a new shape with some of the boys having not played for several months.
“I think the effort and result proved what is possible when you are surrounded by like-minded people with the same aims and ambitions.”
