The visitors went ahead two minutes into the second half as Alex Prosser drilled home an Edward Williams cross from 12 yards.

Spartans then levelled on 63 minutes as Dale rifled home a brilliant free-kick to earn Spartans a point.

Lee Clark handed 18-year-old Levi Amantchi his debut after he signed from Chesterfield on Friday afternoon.

The 18-year-old impressed on his first outing – leaving the field to a standing ovation after helping Spartans earn a point against Kidderminster Harriers.

“I thought it was a good debut, all of the boys were good,” said Amanthci. “And I thought that in the first half we should have had a few goals.

“Second half I thought we started a bit slow, but we stuck together, and in the end, we got a good point.”

“It is good to be back home, and I just want to see what I can do for the team and get some confidence.”

Amantchi, who made 11 National League appearances for Chesterfield last season, also revealed how a move to Croft Park came to light.

“I spoke to Lee before I came here, and he was full of praise for me; he just told me to get my head down and work hard for the team.”

Blyth were looking to continue their improved form at Spennymoor Town on Tuesday, and on Saturday they make the trip over to Merseyside to face Southport.
