Wellington led end-to-end in their Boxing Day derby against Bridgwater until a last minute penalty equaliser saved the day for the visitors. The key moment came on 84 minutes as the referee pointed to the spot following a foul by Kai Fisher on Jake Brown – Llewellyn nailed it from 12 yards to level the match.
Bridgwater’s starting XI included six former Wellington players but it was the Tangerines who took the lead on 16 minutes when Joe Chamberlain surged forward and picked out the bottom corner.
Wellington lost their goalscorer Chamberlain to injury at half-time and two former Tangerines combined for a good chance early in the second period as Ian Bellinger’s cross found Jack Taylor, but the frontman sent his header wide.
Bellinger then saw a shot saved before Jake Viney was called into action, pulling off a fine save from Glen Wright’s efort to keep the Robins in the game. Taylor nearly broke the hearts of his old side in injury time but fired into the side netting as the derby ended all square in front of a crowd of 135. Wellington sit 14th, with Bridgwater in third – four points behind leaders Willand Rovers having played three games more than the Devon side.
Wellington: Josh Mclean, Sam Bryant (Sam Townsend 57), Jack Porter, Tim Legg, Kai Fisher, Glen Wright, George Rogers (Sam Jones 86), Ben Newman, Conor Bryant, Josh Wadham, Joe Chamberlain (Ollie Nott 45)
