BIGGLESWADE TOWN 0
I wonder if I am at the same match as other reporters. I like to think my reports reflect the game and not my green and white tie!
The first 45 was a very open-ended affair certainly the Waders took the game to Tamworth and although the home side edged the opportunities, Biggleswade were not without sight of goal and with the right shooting boots the story may have been different.
No prisoners were being taken with Tamworth the more enthusiastic in the challenge, a series of stops was inevitable.
Late on Tamworth had a ball cleared off the line and the major blow to Biggleswade, captain Shane, inspirational, Bush had to leave the field injured. At the break there was more to come.
Out for the second half with Russell Short coming on for Bush. Pedigree never in doubt but Shorty has not played a full game for weeks, so re-shuffling the back four with Kerins taking centre spot.
11 in and a distance shot from Tamworth was parried by Forster only for Jack Ryan to react quickest to give the home side the lead. 10 minutes forward and a free kick for Biggleswade in the Scotty Davies territory.
Oh no – how many times can he hit the bar?
Yes, the kick crashed the bar and went away to safety. At the other end a penalty awarded for Kyle Forster tripping an advancing Tamworth forward. Beswick gave Forster no chance, 2-0.
With Squire going off with a dislocated shoulder on came Trey Charles but with only 15 remaining Trey was unable to work any magic.
At the death McEwan came on for Peters and Tamworth got an injury time goal as the Waders pushed forward. The score? not really reflective of the play.
