MIKE Banks grabbed a last minute goal to seal Clevedon’s place into the third round of the Knockout Cup.

Draycott created a decent 
comeback from 2-0 down, benefiting from two rare defensive errors at the back and took their chances well. But it was United that deservedly took the win as their fitness told in the last 20 minutes.

Two moments of fine individual work produced two goals in two minutes from Clevedon just before the break. Captain John Davison picked out the run of youngster Nick Lee who took on his defender to the by line 
and crossed for Max James to slot home.

With two Nick Lee’s in the hosts starting line up the roles were then reversed as centre midfielder Lee 
conjured up a bit of magic as he picked up a clearance from a corner and curled home the perfect shot form 25 yards out leaving the keeper motionless.

Clevedon should have scored again, but twice hit the woodwork through Davison and Lee. After Draycott 
levelled the scores they looked the more likely to score, but great 
defending and a shuffle in United’s formation steadied the boat.

Sub Ben Burns then picked out Banks with a great through ball before the striker spotted the keeper off his line and lobbed him from 30 yards out to win the game.
