Substitute Luke Allwood put Bilborough in front once again but his effort was cancelled out by Jake Towers before Rhodri Meads put Olympic ahead for the first time with a little over ten minutes remaining. Bilborough did have the ball in the net again late on but the goal was ruled out for a foul on Glenn Guyatt, the Radcliffe goalkeeper.
