A midweek match against Billington Synthonia ended 3-3, and then on Saturday, after being reduced to ten men, they held out for a 2-2 draw at home to Carlisle City.

Goalkeeper Nathan Harker was the player to see red, and defender Joe Shapherd took over between the sticks for the second half.

He pulled off a couple of good saves to keep Terriers in the match, the home side securing the draw with a late penalty.
