THIRD-placed Evesham United were held 1-1 at home by mid-table Street in Southern League Division One South after a late equaliser.

With the Robins winning four of their last five games they were looking to continue the form while Street had only managed two draws in the last six fixtures.

Following a heavy downpour an hour before kick-off both teams struggled early on with the pace of the ball on a slick surface.

Phil Ormrod shot just wide for Street as they got to grip with the tricky conditions better, playing most of their football in the Evesham half for the first 15 minutes.

Nick Hancock fired over for Evesham from Steve Davies' powerful left-wing cross but then Ormrod’s volley skimmed the bar and home keeper Andy Hannah held Ross McErlain’s deflected free-kick.

Poor defending gave Ormrod another chance which went over the bar on 33 minutes.

But despite Street being the better side Evesham had the best first-half opportunity when a Kye Simpson cross found Hancock who shot just over.

The Robins, now playing with the blustery wind, went ahead just a minute into the second period when a Davies cross was forced into the net by Cory Simpson.

Davies broke clear on 55 minutes but could not beat advancing keeper Liam Kingston and Tyrone Tucker-Dixon saw his long-range shot go just wide.

Harry Foster’s shot was saved by Hannah at the other end and then the same player just failed to reach substitute Ed Butcher's teasing cross.

But with three minutes remaining Street's Ben Amghar forced the ball home from a tight angle to level.

The draw was probably a fair result on an afternoon when football was totally outplayed by the weather.

Evesham: Hannah, Dovey, Tunnicliff, Turley, Anson, Harding, Thomas (Davidge 72), Hancock, Davies, Kye Simpson (Kane Simpson 63), C Simpson (Tucker-Dixon 75). Subs not used: Brown, Wellon.

Attendance: 137.
