Parker picked the ball up and with nobody closing him down he unleashed a drilled effort from 20 yards to level up the match.
2-1 Lowestoft Town Goal (84 mins)

Lowestoft Town Penalty Miss (85 mins)
A Jake Reed shot was adjudged to have been handled in the box by Wilkinson and the referee pointed to the spot. Up stepped Chris Henderson with a confident penalty into the bottom corner but Garnham produced one of a number of excellent saves towards the end of the match as he dived low to his left to deny the blues.
2-2 AFC Sudbury Goal (95+ mins)
Jake Jessup flicked out a leg in the Lowestoft goal to save initially and that was followed by the ball hitting the bar and then Travis Cole clearing from the goaline but with Lowestoft looking like they'd somehow kept it out, who else but ex-blue, Eagle managed to pounce and grab an astonishing late, late equaliser.
