A 1-1 draw at Beer Albion has put a big dent in the Macron League Premier Division hopes of Honiton Town.

Joe Mulhall scored an equaliser to ensure the Hippos got something to show for a difficult afternoons visit to Furzebrake, a ground on which home side Beer Albion have made a habit of ‘pegging back the big boys’, on.

The point sees Town now two clear of second placed Newtown and eight ahead of Elmore.

However, Newtown, who were not in league action last weekend – they were winning an East Devon Senior Cup tie against Lyme Regis – had played a game fewer and so, if they won it, would sit a point behind the Hippos with both teams having then four games to play.

What may yet be Town’s ‘saving grace’ is the fact that Newtown must also visit Beer with their visit to Furzebrake set for the end of the month.
