LYE Town find themselves languishing in 14th place of the Total Motion Midland League Premier Division after leaking two stoppage time goals at Shepshed Dynamo.

That was after Lye looked certain winners when leading 3-1 after 90 minutes.

But Shepshed pulled goal back through Niall Prendiville before Jake Betts dramatically levelled matters in the 97th minute.

Lye boss Andy Wyton was left fuming, he said: "I don't know where the referee found seven minutes of added time from.

"There wasn't even time to kick off again. It was a joke.

"We've put in a complaint but it won't get us anywhere."

Goals from Ben Billingham, Jack Pearlman and Lewis Worsey appeared to have wrapped up the points for Lye until Shepshed staged their late escape.

Wyton was able to call on Shrewsbury Town goalkeeper Kieran Boucher, who saved a penalty, while 16-year-old youth team player Jack Downing was drafted in to replace the unavailable Joe Colley at left back.

Wyton was full of praise for Downing, he said: "He was tremendous for us and did really well. But I'm aware I also have to protect him as well and it may be that I have to leave Jack out of forthcoming games against Highgate United this week and at Romulus this Saturday which are likely to be more physical encounters."

Wyton also confirmed that Croatian striker Dreniz Bala was now on loan at Gornal Athletic, having previously been at Dudley Sports.
