Red Star squandered a host of chances throughout and paid a heavy price.

Seaham opportunities came and went before David Henderson made the breaktrhough for Allotment, beating two defenders then driving wide of keeper Shaun Newbrook.

He was again on target for the visitors’ second goal, pouncing on a rebound. Star boss Collingwood said: “We’ve had enough chances to win four or five games.”
