Mertsham 2 v 2 Grays Athletic
GRAYS earned a key away point but may well feel it should have been all three.
The Blues opened the scoring through Bradley Fortnum-Tomlinson in the 6th minute but newly promoted Mertsham struck back two minutes later through Sarabia.
Grays got themselves back in front through talismanic skipper Kenny Beaney in the 53rd minute.
But Mertsham season has been built on ekeing out the points and that is just what they did as they equalised through Kavanagh just six minutes from time.
The result leaves Grays in 14th place on 39 points but just seven points off the play off places.
They return to action against Needham Market (away ) on Tuesday night.
