Clevedon Town 1 Truro City 1 MATT Rawlins headed a dramatic equaliser to earn Clevedon a replay in a hard-fought FA Cup-tie against the big spenders of Truro City.In a match short of chances, the visitors scored first when Geraint Bater brought down Chris Trolley, and top scorer Steward Yetton just managed to beat Danny Greaves from the penalty spot. Moments later Mitchell Page wasted the seasiders first real chance when he headed over from close range, but apart from some long-range efforts, neither keeper was really tested before the half-time whistle blew.Billy Clark replaced Kris Witcombe at half-time but neither side were able to create many chances with Bater having the best effort in the 58th minute. Clevedon pushed forward in search of an equaliser, but produced few clear-cut chances and it looked as if they were heading out of the competition until substitute Rawlins' dramatic injury-time headed equaliser took the game to a replay.Overall Clevedon failed to show much imagination in their attacking play.
