“I’m just really pleased with attitude, commitment and the resilience in the team”, Evesham United manager Mike Ford after the 0-0 draw with Wimborne Town

Evesham United moved down to the bottom of the table despite earning a hard-fought point against Wimborne on Saturday afternoon.

It’s fair to say a 0-0 most of the time will be very dull and boring, so unfortunately for the fans in attendance, this game was certainly part of that likelihood.

To go from an entertaining 3-2 loss in midweek to a boring 0-0 on Saturday sums up Evesham’s season so far, which is why they are now 20th after seven games.

With Charlie Wise being sent off, that’s now two red cards in two for The Robins after Jordan Lymn was shown a straight red for violent conduct.

“I’m just really pleased with attitude, commitment and the resilience in the team”, said Ford after having ten men for the last 15-20 minutes.

Chances didn’t come often in this game. However, the two best chances of the game came in favour of Evesham.

Levi Steele was put through one-on-one inside the first half, but his effort was saved, much to the shock of Evesham fans, as he has been the banker for goals this season.

Within the first minute of the second half, Amer Awadh looked destined to score, but his effort sailed over the bar.

Five minutes from time, the visitors had the ball in the back of the net, but the flag was raised for offside, and it was a reprieve for Evesham.

Evesham will look to win their first game in two weeks’ time as they do not have a game this weekend and face Bashley at home on the 14th of October.
