Terry in late show; Connah's Quay Nomads 2 Haverfordwest County 2.

Byline: MIKE McEVOY

BATTLING Nomads twice had to come from behind to salvage the priceless point that takes them back to the top of the League of Wales table.

What looked a home banker turned out to be a real test of strength and character as uncompromising Haverfordwest belied their humble rating to push the fancied title-chasing Deesiders all the way.

A storming start brought its reward for the visitors when dangerman Chris Miller was left expensively unmarked on 22 minutes to beat stranded 'keeper Paul Whitfield.

Stuart Rain and Dean Tuft went close for Nomads but they had to wait until the 65th minute to get back on terms, Lloyd Roberts, firing home a low drive from 15 yards following a quality cross from Tuft.

Within two minutes, Haverfordwest had recaptured the lead when they were awarded a penalty after Miller had been felled in full flight in the box by George Horan, Andy Hughes putting away the spot-kick.

Nomads continued to graft and were rewarded with an equaliser 12 minutes from time.

Substitute Julian Pepper made a break down on the left and hammered a low cross into the middle where Stuart Terry was waiting to trigger a scorching drive beyond County keeper Ben Miles.

Nomads mounted a frantic late push for a winner but dogged County clung on to their share to leave contented Nomads to celebrate their return to pole position on goal difference.

NOMADS: Whitfield; Hopkins, Tuft, Hutchinson, Horan, McCosh, Griffiths (Pepper 73), Terry, Rain, Kenworthy (Mazzarella 73), Roberts.

HAVERFORDWEST: Miles; Blane, Rickard, George, Rees, Hughes, Mainwaring, Chandler, Thomas (Burrows 80), Miller, Ramsett.
