Macclesfield came from behind to earn a thrilling point at Nuneaton.

Andy Brown fired low past Lance Cronin from close range before James Armson scored from the spot after Matthew Barnes-Homer handled to give Boro the perfect start.

Keiran Murtagh's tidy finish made it 2-1, but Deanny Sleath's low strike looked to have secured Nuneaton a win.

Barnes-Homer and Arnaud Mendy fired home from inside the box late on to salvage a dramatic draw.
