Gurr said: “I kept on making those late runs and I was grateful that one came in and I got my head on it before the goalie got there.

“In the context of things, that’s an important point at the end of the day. It would have been really disappointing if they had got the three points off us at home. Durham are a very good team, we didn’t underestimate them at all.”
