Park changed there formation going three at the back to try and get back into game,the changes worked as Park started to dominate play creating chances with Mervin Shalemba and Alfie Christie coming close.
With only four minutes remaining in the game plus added time it was Parks captain JR showing sublime skill beating six defenders and slipping his shot thru the advancing keepers legs to kick start Parks amazing comeback.
