A POINT is a point but the Millermen will feel that they threw away two as they let a two goal lead slip at Carshalton on Saturday.
It started so well as Ryan Salmon grabbed the first after ten minutes and then Kenny Beaney scored the second from the spot to increase the advantage.
But these are nervous times down the bottom of the Ryman Premier and managerless Carshalton clawed their way back into the game with goals from Matt Reece and Joel Ledgister
The draw sees Aveley just two points off the relegation zone with nine games to play.
Aveley: McCartney, Andrews, Read, Russell, Francis, May, Slatter, Beaney, Salmon, Stanley, Smith.
