Ross Fraser opened the scoring for the Swans on 44 minutes but the points were shared following a late equaliser.

Storrington took the lead just before half-time through Fraser’s well taken effort.

Billy White equalised for the Mavericks on 79 minutes with a superb strike.

After the match the Swans boss believed that it was a good result for his side.

Bardouleau said: “It was a good point for us and certainly before the game I would’ve taken a point.

“Although both sides had their fair share of the chances, to be comfortable and leading until 79 minutes, it felt like a loss in the end.

“I can’t take anything away from the boys, they put in an outstanding shift. The work rate and desire was second to none.

“The boys executed the game plan and defensively we were class. We were done by tired legs in the end which gifted Worthing United an equaliser.

“We had chances throughout to put the game to bed, we must be more clinical if we are to pull away from the drop.”

Storrington visit Shoreham on Saturday and Bardouleau believes that the Musselmen will provide a stern challenge for his side.

He added: “Shoreham will be a test, they’ll be looking at us as an opportunity to pull away from the bottom half.”
