New Hornchurch boss Mark Stimson saw his side pick up a point from their Bostik Premier Division clash at Whitehawk on Saturday.

George Purcell sent an early chance over, before George Saunders curled an effort over from distance.

Nathaniel Pinney forced a save from Callum Chafer, before a strong run by Lucas Rodrigues saw him fire across goal and beyond the far post.

The hosts took the lead when Rodrigues outpaced Alex Bentley on the left and fired into the far corner on 24 minutes and the Hawks remained on top for a short while, before Purcell saw a shot deflected wide by Leon McKenzie.

Purcell dragged a shot wide from 25 yards, but Chafer saved well from Rodrigues before the break late in the first half.

The second half was only a minute old when Saunders played a ball just beyond Sean Marks, but Rodrigues shot just wide for the hosts soon after.

Marks flicked a corner from Saunders on at the near post, however no teammate could profit, but Urchins were back on terms when Marks crossed to the far post for Jay Porter to sidefoot home.

Marks forced a save from the home keeper, but the visitors were grateful to Chafer for a fingertip save on 86 minutes, with Kenzer Lee clearing the resulting corner as it ended all square.

Hornchurch: Chafer, Bentley, Porter, Clark, Lee, Livings (Anidugbe 71), Saunders, Hogan, Marks (Fairweather-Johnson 90), Purcell, McKenzie (Boakye-Yiadom 54).

Unused sub: Hursit.
