Peacocks perform against Mitres

Bishop’s Cleeve travelled down the M5 to Taunton in a top vs bottom table clash

From the off Cleeve were under siege as Taunton looked to take an early lead in front of a strong home support.

The opener came in the 18th minute when Cleeve failed to clear their lines from a corner and Matt Wright converted from close range via the crossbar.

The hosts continued to press looking to extend their lead and were awarded a penalty shortly before half time which Dan Sullivan calmly converted.

Any hopes Cleeve had of getting back into the match were dashed shortly after half time when Cleeve conceded another penalty just two minutes into the half which Sullivan again converted.

There was a flashpoint just before the hour mark when it appeared Joe Bates was fouled off the ball. Cleeve win the freekick with the Taunton player avoiding a booking which incensed the Cleeve bench with Bishop’s Cleeve Assistant Manager Matt Jeynes being sent to the stand.

Pierce Mitchell scored a great goal from wide into the top corner to complete a comprehensive win for an impressive Taunton side who find themselves well clear at the top of the table.
