Leaders Taunton drop two more crucial points


TAUNTON Town's lead at the top of Southern Premier South is now down to four points after they were held to a 1-1 home draw by Dorchester Town.

Having lost 3-1 at Merthyr on New Year's Day, Taunton have now dropped five points out of a possible six in 2019.
Weymouth and Salisbury both won 2-1 - against Tiverton Town and Merthyr respectively - to step up up the pressure on the Somerset side.
Taunton created the better chances in the first half against Dorchester but the visitors were much more threatening after the interval.
Taunton, who included Colchester United goalkeeper Chandler Hallett who lives locally, took the lead after only ten minutes through Rocky Neal, following good build-up play by Ollie Chamberlain and skipper Matt Wright.
Dan Sullivan and Neal both went close to scoring for Taunton - in the 15th and 24th minutes - before Dorchester 'keeper Kingsley Latham produced a splendid save to deny Sullivan from close range.
Dorchester equalised in the 38th minute when Hallett was beaten by Brennan Camp.
Shortly after, Chamberlain headed wide after fine play by Sullivan, while Lewis Hall came to Taunton's rescue just before the interval with a goalline clearance from Callum Rose.
Dorchester looked the better side at the start of the second half but could not break down Taunton's defence.
Both sides cancelled each other out although Chamberlain could have won it in injury time, with Latham again making a fine save.
The match attracted a crowd of 732, meaning Taunton have been watched by more than 3,500 in their last three home games.
