Premier Division
Wellington AFC 2, Wells City 2

WELLINGTON missed a golden opportunity to put more distance between themselves and the Premier Division relegation zone, as they were held 2-2 at home by second-bottom Wells City on Saturday.

With several first-team regulars out injured, it was Jack Bown-Porter who stepped up with both goals for the Tangerines, while James Clough - returning to the fold after two years away - was named man of the match.

But although the away side had Dwayne Knowles sent off for two yellow cards, goals from Jamie Johnson and Paul Coles earned them a point.

Wellington are 16th in the table, on 18 points - six points clear of the bottom two.

On Boxing Day they face Bridgwater Town, who are 10th but on a run of four straight defeats - the most recent seeing them give up a two-goal lead to lose 3-2 at home to Street.

Tuesday's match kicks off at 3pm at Fairfax Park, Bridgwater.
