Sub Adrian Clifton headed home with a minute to go to cancel out Akwasi Asante’s 82 minute spot-kick.
And Garrard says it was just what his side deserved after tv replays showed the handball leading to the penalty was outside the box.
“It was not a penalty,” he said. “The officials make decisions, some are right and some are wrong.
“For me to get a late equaliser was massive for us. It was nailed on outside the box, we will get the rub of the green as the season goes on
“I said to the ref that they are big decisions and they have got to be made correctly, we could have gone on to lose our unbeaten record at home and I don’t think we deserved to lose a game of football today.
“We are depleted with the squad an it gook a lot to get into that game. I spoke to them at half-time and we were a little more n the front foot and dominated a bit more
“It was a good advert for the National League. As long as you stay in the game then you have always got an opportunity.”
