Blues were forced to settle for a point at Concord following a six goal thriller on Tuesday evening.

An excellent display from Sheldon Sellears helped Blues into a 2-0 lead before the home side hit back to take a 3-2 lead.

But it was Rod Stringer’s side who had the final say as a well taken effort from Rod Young gave Blues their seventh point from four away games.
