For the second game in a row Buxton conceded a late goal to drop points, as in-form visitors Peterborough Sports scored in stoppage time and made the final score 2-2 (Tuesday October 24th). Last Saturday the Bucks lost 1-0 at Scarborough, falling to an 86th minute goal.
Jak McCourt was back after injury and team manager Craig Elliott also brought Zaine Francis-Angol, Jordan Burrow and Max Hunt into his starting line-up.
As the Bucks dominated possession, Diego De Girolamo opened the scoring with quarter of an hour gone, his 99th goal for the Bucks. Peterborough equalised after 24 minutes and that's the way it stayed until Burrow restored the lead in the 78th minute, only to see points slip away three minutes into stoppage time.

Craig Elliott sounded frustrated after the game. He said: "We should have got three points. First half we were excellent and had enough chances to win the game. It was an unfortunate equaliser through an error and that lifted Peterborough. After the break we didn't reach the heights of the first half.
"Conceding near the end was for the fourth or fifth time this season and we have to stamp it out. I'm really disappointed, but that's football, this league is so tight.
"We have to keep going and look to the next game. There's a lot of matches in the next few weeks. There will be a lot more to come from this group, individually and collectively. We'll get better, especially when we get key players back from injury."
The Bucks are at home to Rushall Olympic on Saturday, kick-off 3pm, then it's another home game next Tuesday, against league leaders Tamworth (7.45pm)
