Bushin maintains fine scoring form as Tiverton pick up a point
Tiverton Town's Joe Bushin maintained his goal-a-game scoring streak in a 1-1 draw at Cirencester Town on Saturday to help Tivvy stay in the Evo-Stik League Division One South and West top frame.
Bushin took his tally to five goals in four games with his 35th-minute strike at Cirencester, scoring on the rebound after his initial effort – from Josh Concanen's cross – had been blocked.
Cirencester levelled on the stroke of half-time when Ellis Dunton converted Matt Collier's cross. Bushin – who has scored 11 goals this term – came close to wrapping the game up on 81 minutes following good work by Alex Faux and Andy Taylor.
Tiverton remain second in the table, six points behind leaders Hungerford Town ahead of tomorrow's trip to North Leigh, who lost 2-1 at Wimborne Town on Saturday.
