Axminster Town bounced back from their narrow defeat at Torridgeside on Saturday to share the spoils in an entertaining midweek encounter at St Martins.

Aaron Daniels netted the goal that earned the Tigers a point, applying clinical finish after being played in by a superb through-ball by Tony Pinder.

Indeed, it might have got even better for the Tigers and another good away following had they been awarded the penalty they felt they should have been given when flying winger Luke Finn was felled in the area, but the match official waved away vociferous appeals for a spot kick!

Town joint boss Josh Stunell said: “We played well and actually were left feeling a little disappointed that we did not get all three points.

“We played with confidence and moved the ball about well and the real plus for us is that we quickly got the Torridgeside reversal out of our system and went head to head with a good strong, typically resilient St Martins side that most team swill find it hard to defeat on their own ground.”

As for the individual performances that caught the eye. Stunell again had praise for his fellow joint-manager Johnny Hurford.

Stunell; said: “Johnny was again superb. We got another 90 minutes out of him and he really did sparkle in the holding midfield role, dictating play all around him from first whistle to last.”

On Saturday the Tigers entertain Newton Abbot Spurs at Tiger Way (3pm) and then they visit Honiton Town next Wednesday (August 29) before a September 1 meeting with much-fancied Elmore at Tiger Way.
