Mark Sykes put the Robins ahead five minutes later, but Oliver Joseph Cooper netted for the home side in the 73rd minute to ensure the match went into extra time.
With the threat of penalties looming, Sam Bell, Wells’s replacement, popped up in the 112th minute to settle a tie between traditionally heated rivals.
