IN THIS bottom of the table clash, it was the home side who took command of the game and dominated the first-half, playing down a not inconsiderable slope.

As early as the seventh minute, the Clevedon goal came under pressure when a cross from Craig Stanley found Rob Carr and his final flick on hit the upright. They were rewarded on 10 minutes when Stanley set up Ben White, who rounded Kye Thomas before slipping the ball past the advancing Kane Mannings to put the hosts one up.

Fleet continued to pressure down the slope and were unlucky not to go further ahead on 20 minutes when White sent in a thunderous shot from 40 yards out that crashed against the Clevedon bar with Mannings well beaten.

They say it’s a game of two halves and this proved to be one of them as Clevedon came out for the second period and started to dominate the game down the slope.

On 53 minutes they levelled the score when a Joe Swift free kick on the edge of the area was blocked, man of the match Aron Robbins following up tapped the ball through the crowd of defenders and into the net.

The game developed in to one of chances created and wasted and despite excellent efforts from Ben Bament, Robbins and Omari Sims, Clevedon were unable to find the goal that would have given them the double.

Clevedon Town: K Mannings, K Thomas, L McCaughey (T Parker 79), K Gazzard, A Robbins, K Mountford (c), J Adams (J Teall 22), L Hedges, O Sims, J Swift, B Bament.
