Derby ends all-square again

For the second time in a week, a late Braintree goal saw the derby end in a 2-2 draw.

Kudus Oyenuga had brought City level from the penalty spot, after former Claret Phil Roberts had put the visitors in front.

Shaun Batt gave the home side the advantage in the second half with his first Clarets league goal, but former Fulham youth player Mahrez Bettache restored parity with 6 minutes to go.
