Evesham secured a point with virtually the last kick of the match when Leigh Downing converted a penalty. Earlier after a goal-less first half played with a strong wind, Merthyr took the lead in the 57th minute through Ian Traylor. Near the end the visitors were reduced to ten men with a sending off for a professional foul and to nine men through injury after using all their substitutes. Both sides remain unbeaten after three games in the league.
Man of the match was Simeon Tulloch.
