Leyton 1, Lowestoft 1

Lowestoft returned from Leyton with a hard-earned Ryman League Division One North point on a pitch which left a lot to be desired.

The game started on a blazing hot afternoon and Leyton moved ahead with their first attack after four minutes.

Toran Senghore was allowed too much time and space on the edge of the Lowestoft penalty area to shoot home wide of Andy Reynolds.
