Having lost 5-0 at Nyewood Lane in August, Worthing were out for revenge and – but for Bugiel striking a post – they could have won in front of a bumper crowd of 1,781.

The point kept the Rocks top of the Ryman premier and leaves Worthing well-primed for a play-off bid in the second half of the season.

Photographer Tomy McMillan was there to capture the action and you can see some of his images in our gallery, above
