Hampton & Richmond Borough midfielder Reece Jones described Tuesday's 2-2 draw with Blue Square South high-flyers Dover Athletic as devastating.

The AFC Wimbledon loanee's second goal in as many games and one from Dean Inman had given the Beavers a 2-0 first half lead.

But Dover hit back before half-time through Ian Simpemba and then Billy Bricknell snatched an equaliser with minutes on the clock to steal a point.

Hampton remain adrift of safety, but have games in hand on those around them and Jones can see signs of improvement at the Beveree.

"It is devastating to be 2-0, going well and then draw like that," he said.

"But I've only been here a couple of weeks and that seems to be the story of the season - conceding sloppy goals at set pieces and switching off.

"But another point to make is that two months ago we would have taken a point in a game against a team like Dover.

"It just shows how well the team has progressed, that we are disappointed not to win."
