EVESHAM United suffered a second successive league defeat as high-flying Wimborne Town came from behind to take all three points on Saturday afternoon. 

Chris Knowles had given The Robins a 13th minute lead but second-half goals from Harry Morgan and Jordan Rose turned it around for the visitors, who are now 14 matches unbeaten in the Southern League Division One South. 

Having lost at Paulton Rovers the Saturday prior, Evesham have now lost back-to-back league games and have dropped to eighth in the table. 

They are four points off the play-off spots but have two games in hand on Exmouth Town. 

It had been a really encouraging start from Mike Ford's men on Saturday, looking to put things right from the defeat at Paulton.

The Robins dominated the opening 35 minutes and Wimborne had no answer to their quick passing and movement. And it was no real surprise when Evesham opened the scoring on thirteen minutes.

Kyle Belmonte raced on to a ball over the top down the right and he reached the by-line before pulling the ball back to Adam Mace whose low, swerving shot from the edge of the area was too hot for Shane Murphy to hold; Knowles netted the rebound.

Brimming with confidence, Evesham continued to over-run a disjointed and lethargic Wimborne, and were constantly first to loose balls. Mace delivered more dangerous crosses and Dan Griffiths shot wide.

Bu the momentum changed heading towards half-time and Wimborne took control after the break.

Daniel Bartlett rattled the cross-bar and that signalled the start of Wimborne's dominance and the deserved equaliser arrived just after the hour mark.

It started with Aaron Roberts on the left; his low cross was played to Harry Morgan by Jez Bedford; the skipper glided past his marker on the left of the box and fired across the keeper into the net.

One quickly became two and it was a brilliant piece of play by Rose, who made space to volley home from the edge of the area.

Evesham were then reduced to 10 men as Elliott Keightley was shown a second yellow card and that ended the hosts' hopes of getting abck into the game.
