Substitute strikes to deny Spurs win at Aldershot

A late strike from Charlie Brown helped Chelsea claim a 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur.

The visitors began brightly at Aldershot and took a deserved lead in the 26th minute through Jack Roles.

Chelsea had a chance to level on 65 minutes when they were awarded a penalty for handball. But Billy Gilmour saw his effort saved by Spurs' American goalkeeper Brandon Austin.

The home team were not to be denied a second chance as Brown, a substitute, scored his 13th goal of the season on 89 minutes.

The point takes Chelsea to third on 18 points in Division 1 while Spurs drop to ninth on 12.
