Haringey Greyhounds grabbed a late draw at Peterborough on Sunday after clawing their way back from three goals down.

The Hounds conceded all three strikes in the first 20 minutes before new signing Liam Doyle pulled one back from Rob Johnson's assist at the start of the second.

Scott Cannam made it 3-2 before grabbing the equaliser 40 seconds from the end of the match.

"We were so up for it but we were trying to play a game of finesse in the first period and in a game like that you can't," said Hounds' player Bestic.

Such was Peterborough's desperation to beat the Hounds and cut the gap between the sides in the English League table, they pulled their keeper for the final play of the match.
