Bobby Wilkinson was pleased with the point Wealdstone took from a 1-1 draw at Welling United in the Vanarama National League South.

Stones took the lead at Park View Road in the 21st minute when Connor Stevens found the net.

The Grosvenor Vale outfit were seemingly on course for a second league win a row, but the Wings drew level in the final minute through Danny Mills.

After seeing his team lose their lead late on, Wealdstone boss Wilkinson would be forgiven for being downbeat at full time.

But the Stones manager believes that it was still a well-earned point on the road for his side.

“We were immense trying to win this game of football. We battled with half a completed side, but we didn’t complain,” he told the club website.

“Glenn Wilson was a rock and one thing I’ve learned is that if we give everything, the fans will give us great support and they did on Saturday. It’s a great point and I’m very proud of the boys.”
