FOOTBALL: Tiverton wait on Tully for visit of Thatcham
2:00pm Friday 27th September 2013 in Sport
TIVERTON manager John Clarkson is hoping Steve Tully will be fit enough to return from a groin strain when the Yellows host Thatcham Town tomorrow (3pm).
Striker Jules Emati-Emati will also be pushing for a starting place after scoring as a substitute in last Saturday’s 3-3 with Shortwood United.
Tiverton took an early lead through the in-form Sam Malsom as home keeper Ashton Herbert misjudged his shot.
Tivvy keeper Dan Law made a great save from Matt Bennett but could do nothing about Joe Parker's diving header in the 24th minute.
Three minutes later the home side had turned it around as Duncan Culley netted but Tivvy were level before half-time through Matt Wright.
Substitute Jules-Emati-Emati put Tivvy ahead in the 71st minute but Shortwood equalised with five minutes to go through Sam Avery.
