LYE Town let slip an early lead as they were held to a 1-1 draw at Total Motion Midlands League Premier Division strugglers Romulus.

Goal machine Jack Till followed up his midweek hat-trick against Highgate United by firing Lye in front.

But Lye got caught out in defence when Dimitri Dunkley levelled matters.

Livid Lye boss Andy Wyton said: "We should have sewn the game up by half time as we missed three or four really good chances. But if you don't take your chances, you don't win games and it came back to haunt us.

"Goalkeeper Ben Newey didn't have a save to make until we switched off and let Dunkley in".

Till has now taken his tally of goals for the season to 20.

Previously a product of Kidderminster Harriers Academy, Till has already attracted considerable interest but Wyton quipped: "I hope clubs have got plenty of money because Jack's on contract with us."

Lye have no fixture this Saturday but were due to face the RAF last night (Tuesday) in a Walsall Senior Cup clash.
