Hayes & Yeading United 2, Taunton Town 2

TAUNTON Town came from behind twice to secure a point away to in-form promotion rivals Hayes & Yeading United on Saturday.

Their hosts had won five in a row going into the game, taking them above the Peacocks into fifth spot and the final play-off place.

United were 1-0 up on 10 minutes through Manny Daku, but the visitors responded 13 minutes later - Dan Demkiv heading in a Jamie Short cross for his first Taunton goal.

Omar Rowe put the home side ahead again just before half-time, and it remained 2-1 at the break.

The Peacocks hit back again on 68 minutes, though, as Dan Sullivan nodded in Matt Wright's cross.

Taunton Town: Lloyd Irish, Jamie Short, Ross Staley (Harry Kite 56), Ben Adelsbury, Nick Grimes, Shane White, Ollie Chamberlain, Ryan Brett, Matt Wright (c), Dan Sullivan, Dan Demkiv (Luke Spokes 60). Subs not used: Lewis Hall, Tom Purrington, Jamie Price.

Taunton are due to play again this coming Tuesday (7.45pm), away to Weston-super-Mare in the Somerset Premier Cup
