A stoppage-time goal from Tyler Harvey gave Truro City another late equaliser to snatch a share of the points against Aveley in Essex.

Following on from Ryan Brett’s last-minute leveller at Worthing last time out, Tyler Harvey followed suit and scored with the last kick of the game to earn his side a point on the road at Parkside.

Aveley opened the scoring at the end of the first half through Harry Gibbs, but City showed their immense powers of recovery to ensure they didn’t return home empty-handed.

It was a rather slow start to the game with very few chances for either side.

Adam Porter blasted a shot over the crossbar early on while up the other end, Sam Sanders headed away an inviting Aveley ball into the box.

Harvey then headed a Ryan Law cross straight at the keeper.

Law then had a chance for himself. After a good move, City quickly played the ball around the pitch out to the left where the full-back cut inside and looked to let fly but he was quickly closed down.

Aveley were keeping the ball well but struggled to test Jamie Pardington, Sanders again blocking a shot.

Law then charged down the left and crossed low looking for Andrew Neal but even at full stretch, the forward couldn’t direct the ball goal bound.

Two big chances fell the way of Neal just past the half-hour mark. He was first denied from close range by the keeper before he got in behind the home defence and fired towards the bottom left hand corner but again the keeper was equal to him.

Aveley opened the scoring five minutes before the break. Harry Gibbs tapped home from close range after a corner was headed back across goal into his path.

Truro came out in the second half and looked to get back in the game.

Will Dean hit a free kick wide of the left-hand post.

Law then had a cross-come shot hit the roof of the net.

Nana Kyei smashed a shot for Aveley wide of the target up the other end.

Two big chances went the way of Matt Rush for the hosts. He first headed over the bar from close range before Jamie Pardington denied him with a good save.

Neal made a good run at the back post and Dean looked to pick him out, but his pass was headed away for a corner.

With the board going up with an additional six minutes, Truro continued to hunt for a leveller.

They thought they’d got it when Dean played an inviting delivery into the box which Harvey attacked but his header smashed the post.

Just when it looked like time had run out, a shot from Law deflected off Harvey and into the net sending the City faithful in jubilation and ensuring the White Tigers headed home with a draw.
