Another late goal costs 10-man Consett as Liversedge come from behind twice to draw

Consett conceded a costly late goal for the third time in four games as they drew 2-2 with Liversedge at a gale-lashed Belle View.

Ben Ramsey was the Steelmen’s hero-turned villain as they ended the visitors’ run of five games without conceding a goal.

The pacey forward scored after just two minutes, when a short-free-kick routine saw him latch onto Kaleb Young’s pass and smash the ball past Jordan Porter.

He blazed two more chances over in the first half and was denied by a good save from Porter as Consett made the most of the strong wind at their back.

Liversedge equalised on 42 minutes when Edward Church volleyed home from a right-wing corner to make it 1-1 at the break.

Consett regained the lead six minutes into the second half when Ramsey scored from the penalty spot after Dan Capewell was hauled down at a free-kick.

Liversedge, who now had the wind behind them, piled forward, and Jack Dyche missed two good chances before Alfie Raw brought a fine save from on-loan Sunderland U23s keeper Kelechi Chibueze with a 30-yard free-kick.

The game swung Sedge’s way on 77 minutes when Ramsey was sent off after receiving a second yellow card, and Church curled an equaliser into the top corner with five minutes to go.
