Scole need to start putting their chances away
- Credit: PA
Scole, for the second week running, were left to rue a stack of missed chances as they dropped two Anglian Combination Division One points.
In what is becoming a familiar tale Scole bossed the possession and should have had much than a one goal advantage at half-time following James Harrison's header from a good Nathan Ireland free-kick delivery.
After a slow start to the second half they once again created a glut of opportunities but just couldn't find the killer touch.
Aylsham got an equaliser from a rare foray forward but Scole retook the lead when debutant substitute Chris Collins-Reed, with his first touch after replacing Tom Green, nicked the ball off the centre half and put in a decent cross for skipper Ben Norton-Hugman to put away.
But following a mixture of great goalkeeping from the young Aylsham custodian and wasteful finishing Scole could only draw as Aylsham added a second late in the half. Scole are performing well but badly need to kill teams off when they are dominating.
