PERSHORE Town earned a valuable away point from a 3-3 Midland Combination Premier Division draw at basement boys Pilkington XXX, having played for nearly an hour with 10 men.

The fourth-from-bottom visitors took an early lead when Zach Blood crossed from the right for Louis Bridges to plant a firm header into the net.

Pilkington equalised with a penalty when keeper Matt Oliver brought down the advancing striker.

Three minutes later, a quick counter-attack allowed Pilkington to take the lead.

Worse followed when Town's Quentin Townsend received a red card for tangling with Pilkington's striker when through on goal.

But Pershore levelled after 50 minutes when Bridges chased a long through-ball only for the defender to lob his own keeper with the attempted clearance.

The hosts went ahead soon after with a close-range header but battling Pershore equalised again with 10 minutes left when Garry Price converted Steve Webb's long pass with an overhead kick.

Town, who lost 2-0 at Racing Club Warwick last weekend, visit Pelsall Villa on Saturday (3pm).

Meanwhile, Littleton reached the Worcestershire FA Senior Urn final after a fine mid-week 1-0 win at higher-ranked Alvechurch.

They host Bolehall Swifts in the league on Saturday (3pm) and Feckenham in the Smedley Crooke Memorial Trophy next Wednesday (7.30pm).
