With Clevedon needing a goal, manager Micky Bell, with a bold move, made two substitutions with Gianni Kapika replacing Alex Russell and Joe Flurry replacing Stone and went to three up front.
The remainder of the half was played mainly in the opposition half with Didcot posing little threat to the Clevedon goal. Scott Murray sent in a dangerous free kick which Didcot just managed to clear in the 81st minute.
However, Murray was not to be denied and in the next minute he latched on to a loose ball and coolly finished low into the net.
The game ended in a draw, but this was an improved performance from a strong Clevedon side, with Curtis Jack deservedly being awarded man of the match.
