The Boatmen, who have made the play-offs for all three seasons as a Southern League club, slumped to bottom spot after high-riding Tiverton fought back to draw 2-2 at the Silverlake Arena.

The Boatmen replace Yate at the foot after the Gloucestershire outfit won 2-1 at Merthyr Town. A week previously Sholing had been two up at fellow strugglers Taunton only to draw 2-2.

But manager Dave Diaper said: “It was different this week. Tiverton are right up there. It was no disgrace to draw.
