Bideford coach Simon Morrell had the 5-all draw with Wellington at KGV marked down as ‘one that got away’.
Bideford should have been happier with a draw than Wellington as they need every point they can get to pull away from the bottom.
Morrell felt it was an injustice his side did not win.
“I have no idea how we drew,” said Morrell.
“We were held up on the line and had a couple of knock-ons in the final five.
“We put in a good shift: shame about the result.”
Bideford took the lead in the first half when Alex Priest was mauled over.
Chris Kitto scored an equalising try after the break for Wellington. Paddy Jarman’s conversion kick bounced away off the post frame.
Bideford, still second from bottom on 14 points, can edge closer to safety this Saturday if they beat Chard (20).
The visitors are the side Bideford have to catch in the first instance to get out of the releagation spots.
