Tiverton Town and Bridgwater Town drew 1-1 at Wordsworth Drive in Evo-Stik League Southern Division One South and West action.

Tenth-placed Tiverton had to thank Josh Concanen for an 86th-minute equaliser, after being set up by substitute Jules Emati-Emati.

Emati-Emati and fellow substitute Michael Nardiello both went close following their second half introduction in attack-as Tiverton sought a leveller. Craig Veal opened the scoring with a 20th-minute lob for Bridgwater.

Tiverton's next match is at League rivals Thatcham Town in Saturday's FA Trophy preliminary round.

With tenth-placed Buckland Athletic involved in FA Cup action – they replay at home to Plymouth Parkway tomorrow – Willand Rovers were the only Devon side in home Toolstation Western League Premier action on Saturday.

Steve Ebdy (two) and Jordan Charran were Witheridge's scorers in their 3-0 victory at Elburton Villa, while Chris Reski's effort was enough to see St Austell win 1-0 at Torpoint Athletic.
