Stockport secured their place in the Blue Square Bet Premier despite an injury-time goal from Brad Quinton which rescued a point for Braintree.

The visitors started well with Quinton blasting over while Ben Wright saw his effort saved by keeper Lewis King.

But Danny Hattersley gave the Hatters the lead when he headed past Nathan McDonald in the Braintree goal.

Both sides spurned second-half chances before Quinton collected Jai Reason's pass and fired home the leveller.
