MATCH REPORT: BIGGLESWADE TOWN V DUNSTABLE TOWN
COUNTY CLASH RESULTS IN HONOURS EVEN
With both teams buoyed by their recent success in the FA Trophy, this was an exciting game of end to end football that had an ironic twist in the tail.
After twenty minutes of even exchanges, the pace of Vences Bola saw him score a remarkable goal to give the visitors the lead after twenty minutes. Bola came close just two minutes later, but it was the combination of former Dunstable Town players Innih Effiong and Tony Burnett that led to a remarkable equaliser for the home club on twenty-six minutes. A rapid exchange of passes presented Burnett with a chance he gladly accepted.
Bola’s next shot was well held by the experienced Ian Brown, and in a fast breakaway five minutes before half-time, Tony Burnett eluded the Dunstable defence through sheer pace and an unfortunate slip from Jack Smith made Burnett's task easier and he gave the hosts the lead.
Dunstable, however, persisted and were level in the final minute of the first half when Bola combined well with Adam Moussi who again made the scores level.
The second half saw former Biggleswade Town player Kelvin Bossman squander a golden opportunity with only Brown to beat but he put the ball over the bar. Effiong did the same at the other end, and three notable saves by man of the match Jack Smith earned the point for Dunstable, but both teams went for the win right up to the end, and a draw was indeed a fair result.
