Will Grigg then tested Alex goalkeeper Will Jaaskelainen with a glancing header from Joe Mattock’s cross and fired into the side-netting from Ollie Rathbone’s pass.

The visitors snatched a point in the second minute of time added on as Porter smashed in from the spot after being hauled down by Harding, who received a second yellow card for the foul.
