The Countrymen created hat full of chances with Kieran Watson missing a simple early chance. Ben Thornton hit the post after getting clear on goal with Watson also seeing an effort cleared off the line.

However, Hallam might well have lost it late on when they conceded a penalty but thankfully new signing Jamie Ingham came to the rescue, saving Matty Robinson's 86th minute spot-kick.

'I thought we had good chances to win it but credit to Harworth they stuck to their task and did great and we rode our luck in the last 20 minutes,' said Hallam joint manager Scott Bates.

Handsworth Parramore marked their homecoming after five straight away matches by beating high-flying Knaresborough Town in the Premier Division.
