SILS showed tremendous fighting spirit to hit back from 2-0 behind and claim a point in Saturday's clash against fellow strugglers Warwick University.

The opening stages were played at a frantic pace but it was the visitors producing the moments of quality and they eventually got themselves ahead ten minutes before half time.

A brighter start to the second half gave Sils hope but they shot themselves in the foot by making a defensive error that allowed the students to double their lead.

Sils rallied well though and pulled one back after a sustained period of pressure led to them winning a short corner and Jamie Glynn fired home.

The final 20 minutes then proved to be one-way traffic as Sils fought hard to draw level and it duly arrived from captain Jamie Clapham who scored with a reverse stick shot.
