JAMES Potton fired in a stoppage time free-kick to earn Chesham a point at Redditch.

The midfielder curled in a super effort to keep the Generals in the Premier Division play-off spots in a game that lacked much inspiration.

It was another bad-tempered affair after Chesham were awarded a win in the reverse game after Redditch player Josh McKenzie struck the referee at the Meadow.

Redditch ended the game with ten-men but the Generals needed late drama to snatch a share of the spoils.

The home side took the lead on 39 minutes when Joey Halsall looped a header over Shane Gore in the Chesham goal but they were down to ten in the second-half after a wild tackle by Tommy Warmer.

But the visitors left it late to frustrate Redditch when Potton left stopper Dean Coleman stranded with his superb late set-piece.
