FOOTBALL: Didcot foiled by late goal

First published in Football

Didcot Town were denied all three Evo-Stik Southern League points when Clevedon snatched a late equaliser in their Division 1 South & West encounter on Tuesday night.

Visitors Didcot shaded a cagey first half with James Clark twice going close.

Clevedon’s best chance fell to ex-Bristol City and Reading striker Scott Murray, whose effort was saved by keeper Marco Belloli.

Didcot took the lead five minutes after the break when Richard Peirson thumped the ball home at the second attempt following a Brian Bowles corner.

And it looked like the visitors might hold out until Murray forced the ball home on 81 minutes to level for Clevedon.

There were no further scares at either end.
