Ryan Robinson successfully dispatched a penalty and Liam Robinson bagged a brace for the hosts Seacroft, but goal from Andrew Richards, Simon Holliday and Rob Holliday ensured a point from the bottom club.

It could prove to be a vital point come the end of the seaoson for Leeds City Rovers, who will take confidence from this result going into games against the teams around them in the fight to avoid relegation.
