Gary King made it five goals in four games as his brace earned Corby Town a 2-2 draw at already-relegated Droylsden in their Blue Square Bet North clash.

Steelmen boss Chris Plummer named an unchanged side from the one that won 4-2 at Brackley Town on Easter Monday.

After a first half in which they dominated, Corby were struck right on the stroke of half-time when a foul by Gareth Jelleyman gave the hosts a penalty, which was converted by Lee McEvilly.

But the Steelmen were back on level terms three minutes into the second half when Semple’s free-kick was headed on by Carl Piergianni and King was there to volley home.

However, Droylsden were given the chance to regain the lead on 55 minutes when Piergianni was adjudged to have handled in the area.

But this time Paul Walker saved McEvilly’s spot-kick and the rebound was blasted high over the crossbar.

Droylsden re-took the lead on 75 minutes when Steve Hall headed home a corner but Corby hit back almost immediately when King was on hand again to head home Greg Kaziboni’s cross.

Steelmen line-up: Walker, Crowe, Jelleyman, Abalimba, Galinski, Piergianni, Semple, Wedderburn, Kaziboni, King, Webb. Subs: Malone, Greer, McGowan, Moreman, Vieira.
