POSSET failed to build on the previous week's away win when they were beaten by fellow strugglers Shepton in a scrappy encounter on a hard bouncy pitch.

Posset can only blame themselves though as they had the better of the chances and the majority of the possession.

Jamie Clarke thought he had broken the deadlock after 25 minutes when his fine effort came off the underside of the bar only to bounce back from behind the goal line, but neither of the officials were in a correct position to give a goal.

The second half brought more frustration for the home side as when a penalty appeal when turned down when Mapstone was upended in the Shepton area, instead giving a free kick on the edge of the area. Shepton got their winner when a long hopeful free kick was not dealt with by Posset's defence and Shepton's striker poked home from close range.
