Following wins against Cheddar, Nailsea United and Wedmore, the hosts started stronger with the front three of Tom Adams, Ryan Down and Lewis Cahill looking dangerous and had the majority of the possession as they closed down the visitors all over the pitch with constant pressure and many battles.

And they had the ball in the back of the net through Down, following a sublime chip, only for the linesman to put his flag up to rule it out.

With more pressure, it was Down who again put the ball in the net with great individual skill as he beat the defender before slotting home.

But the total of so many matches began to show as Town had the majority of the play in the second half and with 15 minutes to go they got their equaliser through their forward to ensure both sides came away with a share of the spoils.
