Takeley FC recovered from 3-0 down to draw away at derby rivals Stansted on Saturday to stretch their unbeaten run to seven games.

Having gone into the Essex Senior League game after an enforced two-week break, Marc Das’ side started the encounter at Hargrave Park slowly.

They trailed 3-0 by the 15th minute after goals for Jordan Wescott, Luke Meadwright and Jack Hayes.

Takeley striker Charlie Cole pulled one back on the stroke of half-time to give his side some hope.

Just five minutes after the break Cole netted again making the score 3-2.

Takeley cleared a Stansted effort off the line and then in the closing stages Jason Todd converted to complete the comeback and earn the Station Road side a point.

On Saturday Takeley travel to the Old Spotted Dog Stadium to face Clapton.
