Jon Blake's 88th-minute equaliser forced a replay as Wimborne snatched a draw at Clevedon in the preliminary round of the FA Trophy.

The visitors took an early lead, Kevin Gill scoring from Mickey Hubbard's set-up with just six minutes on the clock.

Mickey Bell's side produced a lively response, but Aaron Robbins and Joe Flurry both sent efforts narrowly wide of the target.

Eight minutes before half-time, however, Flurry was given another opportunity by Jordan Walker and this time he made no mistake.

Robbins struck the Wimborne crossbar after the break, while Gill watched a chip sail a fraction wide of the post at the other end.

Just short of the hour mark, however, the hosts went in front when Walker found Jack McKenna and his cross into the goalmouth was headed in by Adie Adams.

Two minutes from time, though, Jamie Davidson produced a fine cross and Blake nodded in the Wimborne equaliser.

Clevedon travel to Dorset for the replay tomorrow (7.45pm).
