EVESHAM United remain unbeaten in 2024 but were held to a 1-1 draw at strugglers Bashley on Saturday.

Amer Awadh's goal in the sixth minute of first-half stoppage time rescued a point for The Robins, who were unable to break down a stubborn Bashley in the second-half as they went in search of three points.

Luke Delaney had put Bashley ahead right at the end of the first-half but Evesham were rapid in their response to draw level.

Both sides had their moments after the restart to earn a victory but both were forced to settle for a share of the spoils. The result helps keep Bashley away from the relegation zone whilst Mike Ford's Evesham are still in the final play-off spot.

But manager Ford admitted his side were a little fortunate to take something from the game.

"The game was stretched," said Ford. "We had a nice opening spell but I never really felt comfortable with us and never felt that they wouldn't get a goal.

"We did get a lifeline really. We concede a goal and then go up the other end, get lucky, and score straight away, that gave us a real lifeline in the game.

"Second-half, we tried to win it but we lacked our quality that we normally have. We lacked loads of stuff. But we get a point.

"If we were on the back of a bad run, we probably get beat today but becuase we stayed in the game and we're in a good form, But we probably didn't deserve to win so, for me, I will take the point."

The Robins are back in action on Tuesday night when they host Paulton Rovers at home.
