Alfreton Town were left to rue missed chances as they let visitors AFC Telford United off the hook after dominating the first half.
The Reds went close several times with Ben Tomlinson denied twice by United keeper Ryan Young before Tomlinson made it third time lucky when he put the hosts deservedly ahead in the first minute of added time at the end of the first half with low angled shot into the far corner of the net.
The second half saw a different story as Telford showed much better and after more missed Alfreton chances, the visitors equalised on 69 minutes when substitute Chris Sharp smacked home a superb 30 yard shot into the bottom right corner.
Both sides had late chances with Josh Law's brilliant last-ditch challenge deep inside the penalty area stopping Steve Jones from putting Telford ahead before a trio of saves from Young ensured the visitors' point as he denied Arnold, Tomlinson and Killock.
Ross Killock was named as the Reds man of the match. The attendance was 572 including 78 from Telford.
Alfreton have no midweek game and are next in action on Saturday, November 3rd when they travel to Wrexham in the FA Cup with Budweiser first round proper. Kick-off is 3pm and ATFC Supporters' Association transport departs at 9.45am. Seats can be booked by contacting Mark Thorpe on 01773 836251.
