Ashington FC striker Dylan Williamson scored his first goal of the season on Saturday.

His 94th minute effort earned his side a replay in Leeds on Wednesday in their Emirates FA Cup tie against Albion Sports.

And afterwards, the 24-year-old admitted he thought his side were bowing out.

“I thought the game was going away from us,” he said.

“The ball has come in, Andrew Johnson has flicked it on and I spun and thankfully tucked it away.”

However, although the Colliers have yet to win after three matches, Williamson is convinced things will turn for the better.

“We are just playing for 45 minutes at the moment,” he added.

“We need to work for the full 90, stick together and the results will come.”

Central defender James Harmison, who scored Ashington’s opener on Saturday and who has now netted in back to back games, echoed Williamson’s thoughts and believed his side deservedly got a draw.

Describing his goal, the 34-year-old said: “We had a free kick and when the ball broke, Jonathyn Quinn put over a good cross and I just finished it off.”

On the game, Harmison said: “First half we were the better side and if we had taken our chances in the game we would have won comfortably.

“However at the minute we are letting ourselves down with our second half performances.

“It’s not good enough, especially with the players we have got and things have to improve.

“Second half they got a foot in the game and made it hard for us and it just turned into a scrap.

“We showed character at the end, something which had let us down in the previous two games, when Dylan got the equaliser and I was delighted we got back on terms because we didn’t deserve to lose.”
