THE clash of the Premier Division's basement sides ended all square, but it was Oxhey who were probably the happier with the point.
The 2-2 draw at Glenn Sports moved Oxhey to within two points of third placed Oxhey Jets A, while the home side remain two points adrift at the bottom after Gary Border and Gavin Dale netted.
Oxhey's wander up the Division One table is looking more like a charge, following another league win, this time against close rivals Top of the World.
