Three goals in the last 10 minutes by Odd Down saw Clevedon pick up just a point in their latest league match.

Clevedon travelled to Bath to take on Odd Down and put in an excellent performance that saw them three goals ahead after 80 minutes, before the home side rallied with three late goals to earn a point.

The Seasiders went ahead on 17 minutes with an excellent finish. Liam Dempsey played a long ball forward and with the home defence appealing in vain for offside, Lucas Vowles managed to get to the ball before the onrushing Ed Baldy.

Clevedon had to be grateful to man of the match Tom Baker when a long ball found Adnan Hiroli bearing down on goal, but the young defender timed his tackle perfectly to clear the danger.

The visitors doubled their lead on 30 minutes. Morgan Williams played the ball for Saikou Janneh to outmuscle home skipper David Gould before seeing his shot parried by Baldy across goal and into the path of Tyler Ashmead, who blasted the ball into the net.

Odd Down’s first shot of the game came in the 53rd minute when James Dunn shot wide from the edge of the box. A minute later and Clevedon had a great chance to go further ahead when Janneh played the ball through for Vowles, but he shot straight at Baldy.

Clevedon keeper Dylan Wallis made his first save of the game on 58 minutes when Ashley McGrane edged skipper Sekani Simpson off the ball before unleashing a shot which the young keeper got down low to push the ball away.

It was no surprise when Clevedon went further ahead on 68 minutes. Williams played the ball through to Janneh and from the right edge of the six-yard box he smashed the home to make the score 0-3.

When the home side pulled a goal back in the 81st minute there appeared little danger to Clevedon being able to maintain their lead. The visitors were more concerned when Odd Down pulled another goal on 86 minutes.

Sensing that they had a chance of salvaging an unlikely draw, Odd Down won a corner in the third minute of stoppage time and Hiroli managed to get in front of his marker and nod the ball into the far corner for the equaliser.

Clevedon are next in action tomorrow (Thurs) when champions-elect Street visit The Everyone Active Stadium with a 7.30pm kick-off, followed by a visit from Longwell Green Sports on Saturday with a 3pm kick-off.

Clevedon Town: D Wallis, S Simpson, L Dempsey, C Kingdon, T Baker, M Williams (E Harris 90), A Russell, K Camargo (M Davies 89), L Vowles (D Parslow 84), S Janneh, T Davies.
