Aylesbury remain unbeaten in March, but they twice surrendered a winning position as they were held 2-2 by Hadley at home.

Dominating the first half hour, the Ducks had deservedly taken the lead through Lea Coulter in the 21st minute.

The game's main event was an injury to visiting keeper Adam Robinson, who collided with Mulholland, resulting in a near-25 minute stoppage.

From the eventual restart, Aylesbury were caught sleeping and Hadley equalised through Melford Simpson's smart finish.

After the more regular interval, United were once again on top and Ben Baines scored to put them ahead again after great play by Warren Garcia.

But once again they couldn't hold their lead, Simpson - Hadley's only genuine threat - heading home five minutes from time to level.

It was a definite case of two points dropped by a sloppy United, and they will be looking for better at struggling St. Margaretsbury on Thursday evening.
