Bideford suffered another defeat away from home in BetVictor Division One South on Saturday, losing 2-1 at Bristol Manor Farm.

Lewis Leigh-Gilchrist's strike with less than 10 minutes remaining meant the Robins left Portway without a point.

The hosts took the lead in the 33rd minute when Lloyd Mills headed in from a Jordan Metters corner.

Ben Wood got the hosts back on terms in the second half, equalising two minutes shy of the hour after a scramble in the penalty area.

Bideford had chances to take the lead, but it was Manor Farm who would get the crucial goal nine minutes from time when Leigh-Gilchrist got in behind the Bideford defence and fired past Liam Kingston.
