Bedford squeeze past Biggleswade to advance to semi-finals - Bedford Town 2-1 Biggleswade Town

Updated: Mar 10, 2022

This one is a tough one. In form Bedford Town who have been brilliant lately and haven't lost in a long time. Biggleswade Town have been the exact opposite and haven't won since October 2021. Despite Bedford being in the lower division I'd imagine they fancy their chances.

A very cagey start saw no real chances in the first ten minutes. Enoch Andoh really should have opened the scoring for Biggleswade. A brilliant ball was fizzed across the area and it went to Enoch Andoh who connected with it very well and somehow missed the target. It was debatable whether Enoch Andoh was offside or not but still Bedford really got away with one. It wasn't long until the first goal of the game and it was for Bedford. A great ball was swung in and it went to a crowd of players forcing the goalkeeper to pull off a brilliant save but just for Charley Sanders of Bedford Town to nod it in to give Bedford the lead. The next goal could have gone either way but it was Bedford who scored it. After a under hit back pass from the Biggleswade defender to the goalkeeper, the ball went straight to Will Summerfield who squared it to Rene Howe who tapped it home for the easiest goal he will ever score. Not much else happened in the second half and Bedford went in with a 2-0 advantage. The second half was pretty dire. There weren't loads of chances, Connor Tomlinson and Will Summerfield both got close but neither could convert. With about 15 minutes to go Biggleswade pulled a goal back. Enoch Andoh got on the end of a cross, touched it down and finished calmly past Elliot Duffy in goal. This wasn't enough as Bedford held out strong and advanced to the Semi Finals.

Bedford continue their fine run of form and kept up their unbeaten streak. Biggleswade's duck stays in tact and they really played like a team who haven't won in a while. Bedford move to the Semi finals and Biggleswade will not retain their title.
