The Robins raced into a 2-0 interval lead thanks to goals from Jordan Harris, in the 11th minute, and Dan Boere, 15 minutes later and, at the break, were good value for the lead.

However, the home side scored four time sin a golden spell of just 13 minutes to turn the game on its head!

With five minutes remaining Robins’ player-boss Kevin Hill scored to set up a grandstand finish, but it was too little too late and Budleigh slipped to a seventh defeat of the league season.

The Robins entertain Sidmouth Town in a Boxing Day East Devon derby. The Greenway Lane match kicks off at 11am.
