Sandbach blow chance to win

SANDBACH 30
BURTON 31
(Midlands Premier)
Burton claimed a dramatic victory over Sandbach with the last kick of the game, to claim the spoils in what was a scrappy encounter at Bradwall Road (writes Paddy Davenport). 
Sandbach have only themselves to blame as, despite outscoring their visitors by five tries to three, they failed to see the game out, having led 30-23 with just minutes to play. Fair play to Burton, who hung in the game and took their opportunities, although Sandbach really should have put the game to bed. But if you give teams at this level a leg up, they will take it.
