Michael Coulson timed his first goal of the season to perfection as he came off the bench to rescue a 1-1 draw for Scarborough at Altrincham.
Colin Little gave the hosts the lead just before the hour but Coulson struck with less than five minutes remaining to earn a share of the spoils.
Altrincham striker Rod Thornley came closest to breaking the deadlock early on when he headed against the woodwork from six yards, although Scarborough's Jake Speight had a goal disallowed from the edge of the area just before the break.
Ian Clark then missed a sitter but Little spared his blushes somewhat with a great finish from the edge of the area before Clark himself had a goal ruled out.
Scarborough rallied and Speight was again unlucky when he hit the woodwork but Coulson snatched the equaliser with a simple finish from six yards.
