A win and a draw in the space of four days have kept Sidfbury United on course for second place in the Fresha League Premier Division.
What’s more, given that this time last year the Byes Lane were side a Division One outfit this term represents a success, whatever position the team finish in.
Not too many teams have come away from table-topping Tiverton Town with points this season – but United did on Saturday.
After going behind to a soft goal – keeper Jamie Harvey at fault – Sidford equalised through a long-range volley from Conor Hannaford.
“It was a contender for goal of the season – and it was the only sort of way we looked like beating their keeper,” said Byes Lane boss Jeremy Schofield.
