Play-off hopefuls Paulton Rovers came from behind to beat Evesham in injury time. In the first half the visitors should have added to just the one goal they scored on 10 minutes through a Scott Brice header from a corner.

Lance Smith levelled three minutes after the break and Ben Evans put Evesham ahead on 59 minutes with a superb half volley that gave the keeper no chance.  McCottie equalised in the 63rd minute getting on the end of an accurate cross from the left wing.

Midway through the second half Stuart Tovey was sent off for a tackle on Cheltenham Town scholar James Bowen.

Paulton applied more pressure late on and were rewarded in injury time when McCottie set up Klein-Davies who drove the ball low past Evesham keeper Louie Barnfather.

Evesham slip to 16th, Paulton stayed in 4th place.
