THREE consecutive draws have threatened to derail Evesham United’s Evo-Stik Southern League Division One South and West play-off hopes.

Despite taking the lead at Yate Town late on in the 82nd minute through a Mike Baker own goal, the visitors conceded an equaliser four minutes later with Jake Slocombe scoring with a good finish.

After the 1-1 draw the Robins remain second on goal difference from Tiverton Town who have a game in hand and beat Bridgwater Town 2-0.

Runaway leaders Hereford FC won 3-0 at Slimbridge watched by 886 fans.

Former Worcester City forward Mike Symons, John Mills and Tristan Plummer scored the goals.

Redditch United lost 2-0 at home to leaders Chippenham Town in the Premier Division.
