Port Talbot Town’s first fixture after the departure of Paul Evans ended in a 2-2 draw at league leaders Haverfordwest County on Saturday afternoon. Goals from Jack Hurley and Cortez Belle secured the Blues a point on the road.
Haverfordwest’s Sean Pemberton opened the scoring in the 8th minute, with a volley on target following a Danny Williams corner kick.
A strike from Jack Hurley just minutes later leveled the affair.
The home side made it 2-1 just after the half-time break when a Joe Leahy run down the left wing saw him cut into the Blues penalty area before firing into the far corner of the net.
On 60 minutes, a foul in the Haverfordwest box saw the referee point to the spot. Luke Bowen hit the ball just over the woodwork.
Another penalty for the Blues in the 78th minute saw Cortez Belle step up and convert, making it 2-2 with just over ten minutes left to run of the game.
The Blues saw the game out to secure a hard-fought point against a Haverfordwest County side that have enjoyed a very successful season at the higher end of league table so far.
The Steelmen, who are currently without a first-team manager, are back in Division One action on Friday evening when they welcome local rivals Goytre United to Victoria Road Stadium. Kick off 7.30pm.
