THAME United were unfortunate to slip to a 3-3 draw away to Reading Town in the league after conceding a last minute equaliser.

Thame made the trip on Tuesday night with a much changed team following their recent string of poor results.

The visitors started well but were behind inside the half an hour before three goals, including strikes from Matt Hall and Adam Little, saw them take the lead in style.

It was a much-improved performance and Thame were unfortunate to concede two goals in the last five minutes including one in the 90th.

United manager Mark West rued the result but admitted he would have taken the draw before the game.

“Going there we would have been happy with the point.

“We had a few players missing and went 1-0 down. The lads did brilliantly and played very well to get us 3-1 ahead but they scored in the final minute to draw level.

“It’s disappointing for the lads because they did well and deserved the result.

“It was a much better performance then the last couple of weeks.

“They all worked really hard. If we play like that every week then we will do well.”

Thame United next play Ardley United away in the Bluefin Cup on Saturday.

“It will be a tough game. They are about fourth in the league. But every game in this division is tough,” warned West.

“If we play like we did against Reading we should get a result. But if we play like we did in the few games before then we’ll be in trouble.”

Thame United play Ardley United at 3pm Saturday.
