John Dungworth's team had opportunities to establish a healthy lead before the visitors' claimed a fortuitious opener. Diego De Girolamo and Terry Kennedy both forced saves while Louis Reed went close from long-range. But, as extra-time beckoned, the floodgates opened. Boyle's deflected effort snaked past Aaron Ramsdale with 10 minutes remaining. Whiteman equalised moments later when his greater convinction saw him beat Ryan Schofield to the ball.
