REPORT: Frome Town 1-1 Evesham United

Neither of the two Robins would rule the Badgers Hill roost, as Frome Town and Evesham United played out a 1-1 draw.

Frome Town manager Danny Greaves made one change to his side as Alex Monks replaced the injured Chris Peck, who suffered a concussion during the dramatic 2-1 victory over Mangotsfield United.

The game coined as the Battle of the Robins in the matchday programme, due to the two clubs sharing their aviary nickname, and it certainly was a battle in the first half as neither side was giving the other an inch.

Frome forward Will Hailston looks like a golden egg, as he’s scored four goals in all competition already this season. He would be the first to go close as his shot went just over the bar with five minutes on the clock.

However, it would be a very end-to-end affair in the most part in the first 45 minutes with both sides regurgitating their attacking plays.

The only real shot on target in the first half came off the boot of Dan Cottle, whose powerful shot was glanced wide by the visitor’s keeper.

The tale of the second half could have simply told by how many flew from the Badgers Hill nest, as three ball not only left the pitch but also the stadium.

Two goals in two minutes ended the game in cracking fashion as Jon Davies scored a sublime sixth goal of the season from just outside the box but Evesham quickly pegged them back.

FROME TOWN XI: Brown, Cooper, O'Loughlin, Teale, Mapstone (Maidment 77'), Davies, Hobbs, Hailston (Mannings 60'), Smith, Monks, Cottle (Lenihan 60').

SUBS NOT USED: Hallett, Bath.
