Wellington remain fourth in Division One of the Western League following their mammoth trip to Devizes last weekend as they came home with a point that was the least they deserved for their efforts.
A narrow pitch greeted the Tangerines and this tended to suit them with Luke Redrup finding good space and time to be able to deliver good crosses into the box and with the Devizes keeper been a little uncertain Wellington were keen to exploit this as often as they could.
Alex Piper got in behind the Devizes back line often as he played a high line, but he had to be careful doing this as there was always the potential to be caught offside.
Against the run of play Devizes took the lead with a good low finish from Mark Barnes who was to feature later in the game for the home side after Wellington allowed a cross to come in and offered Barnes too much space to shoot and score past Jake Viney.
Ollie Chamberlain’s low finish to a sweeping Wellington move early after the restart levelled things up as Devizes screamed for offside to be called, but it was not the case.
As Wellington pushed forward they were the dominant force and when a penalty was awarded that Alex Piper slotted home it looked like an away win was beckoning, but Barnes scored his second of the game and with it saw the points were shared in what had been a good game.
Wellington host Welton Rovers on Saturday 12th October as they continue to make steady progress all round.
