A Dave Matthews goal deep into stoppage time ensured a point and the Premier League title for Quebec Rovers as they came from 3-1 down to draw at Poringland Wanderers.

Goals by Josh Farrow, Matt Elwin and Chris Reynolds had put the home side in front, but Adam Brock and another from Matthews replied for the visitors.

The league's decision that any division not completed will be decided by average points, means the title will go to the Norwich-based side.
