 Barnstaple Town need one point from their final two games to make sure of third place in the Toolstation Western League First Division.

Town hit back from a goal down to win 2-1 at home to Westbury United this afternoon.

The visitors went ahead soon after half time when a shot deflected off defender Karl Baggaley and eluded keeper Ryan Draper.

Ryan Turner cut in from the right and hit a left-footed shot for the equaliser in the closing stages.

And another run from Turner created the winner as he was brought down and sub Billy Tucker converted the penalty.

Barnstaple held out for the last few minutes with 10 men after sub Shaun Copp was sent off for retaliation.

Barnstple Town: Ryan Draper, Kyle Paine, Aaron Harper-Penman, Karl Baggaley, Liam Gregory, Jed Harper-Penman, Ross Jones, Jack Jenkins, Lee Francis, Dave Pearse, Ryan Turner. Subs: Billy Tucker, Shaun Copp, Kieran Jewell, Jimmy Thorne.
