WREXHAM extended their un-beaten run to three games on Saturday with a 2-2 draw at Mansfield Town - but manager Denis Smith felt it was a case of two points dropped.
Matt Derbyshire's second-half double - which took his tally up to four in two games since joining on loan from Blackburn Rovers - looked enough to earn the Dragons their third straight success.
But three minutes of madness let the Stags back to continue Smith's men's poor record on the road.
The Racecourse chief said: 'Considering how we have been closing teams down, I am disappointed that we have thrown this one away.
'I don't think our performances away from home need improving, it's just the results that do.'
Smith's frustration was clear, but there were positives he could take from what was an excellent League Two contest - not least the amount of chances his side created.
In the first half, Andy Holt and Mark Jones both tried their luck on two occasions. But the closest they came was when Simon Spender hit a shot against the woodwork.
Yet they only had to wait six minutes after the restart to take the lead, as Derbyshire took advantage of a terrible backpass to round keeper Kevin Pressman and score.
Eleven minutes later, the 19-year-old latched on to a through-ball by strike partner Sam Williams to fire under Pressman and make it 2-0.
Wrexham were on course for only their third away win of the season - then up stepped Richie Barker.
He sent Michael Ingham the wrong way from the penalty spot with 64 minutes on the clock, before the top-scorer headed in Gus Uhlenbeek's fine cross three minutes later to see honours end even. nNEWI Cefn Druids chase their fourth win in a row at Llanelli on Saturday.
The revived Ancients are buzzing after moving out of the Welsh Premier League relegation spots, with their latest victory a 3-2 win against Caernarfon on Friday.
Druids went ahead in their first attack of the game, as Darren Williams headed home after Canaries goalkeeper Paul Pritchard could only parry Mike Heverin's effort.
Williams doubled his tally minutes into the second half when he again reacted quickest to another Pritchard fumble.
The hot-shot then blotted his copybook by being shown a red card for a headbutt on the Caernarfon keeper. But Paul McDonnell ended a fine run with a cool finish.
That kicked Caernarfon into gear, and two late strikes made for a nervy ending - but Druids held on. nGresford Athletic face a big Cymru Alliance relegation battle at Halkyn United on Saturday.
