Barby re-established the Warwick side’s lead after the interval but Ross Jackson struck five minutes later to make it 2-2.

With less than ten minutes to go, AFC Warwick looked to have clinched the victory through Daniel Long, only for Morton to rifle home his second of the game four minutes from time after good work on the left wing.
