A goal from Steven McDonnell put the Tigers into a 63rd-minute lead before a late Porya Ahmadi penalty eight minutes from time levelled matters for the hosts.

It felt like two points dropped, admitted Jordan.

"I thought for huge parts of the game we performed really well and moved the ball well," the Worksop manager said.

"It's frustrating that we didn't manage to score another when we were on top.

"Pembo's ducked under the ball and let the kid in. Miscommunication? I don't know what.

"He's got to do better and got to deal with it.

"It's resulted in a penalty and it's another set-piece we've conceded from and another late goal.

"It's a reoccuring problem and we'll never get a better chance to win here, which would have been six points in a week.

"And they've thrown it away.

"I thought the referee made life a little bit easier for us with the sending off early on in the game.

"It changed the game in our favour and there were no two ways about it there was only one team in it after that.

"But we fizzled out a bit after our goal.

"The defending for our goal... people have got to start taking responsibility."

And added: "We said at half-time that we didn't need to rush it.

"That we had 45 minutes to go and win the game. We didn't need to win it in the next 10 or 20 minutes.

"I think the goal came after 25 minutes in the second half.

"Going forward we looked a lot better tonight.

"The pitch was decent - I was very impressed with how they've kept the pitch in good condition.

"We didn't manage to get that second goal to kill the game off and obviously teams have always got a chance.

"It only takes a defensive mistake, like it did. There was no way they were getting back into the game, barring the error.

"It's massively frustrating and it's two points thrown away today."
