EVANS EQUALISER GAINS FRIENDLY DRAW FOR TOWN
Town battled back from an interval deficit to draw 1-1 with a Bristol City XI in an entertaining friendly at Wordsworth Drive yesterday evening (28th July). After the Peacocks had come near to breaking the deadlock through Josh Searle and Jamie Price,the visitors took the lead against the run of play on 24 minutes when Sekou Cissokho converted George Dowling's cross from close range. Both teams had chances before Taunton began to get on top and deservedly drew level on 72 minutes when Dale Evans beat Jojo Wollacott with a drive inside his near post. Town couldn't find a winner despite having the better of it,with Jordan Rogers seeing a shot cleared off the line and a follow-up fired over.

Reaction - manager Leigh Robinson said:" I was pleased with our lads tonight. Up against a quality side they stood tall, backed themselves on the ball and showed good discipline off it. The lads that started grafted through the first hour brilliantly and the subs really freshened it up and gave us momentum in the last 20 minutes or so. We were able to create plenty of opportunities tonight and always looked a threat going forward which is really pleasing."
