Tough time in front of goal results in stalemate for Bedford - Bedford Town 0-0 North Leigh

The Eagles hosted the Millers in what looked to be a tough game for both sides. Bedford need to keep picking up wins and try to outrun Berkhamsted. North Leigh are attempting to confirm play-offs and keep their grasp on 5th placed position. It was all set at the Eyrie.

Bedford started on top but North Leigh defended firmly. A few chances came and went for Bedford but they failed to put any away early on. Will Summerfield had a good opportunity but he rolled it wide of the post. Connor Tomlinson had a chance too but it was well blocked by the North Leigh defender. North Leigh than began to go forwards lots more and really became on top. North Leigh came close quite a few times but goalkeeper Alex Street stayed calm as always and kept them out. Danny Setchell had a few good chances but failed to convert any. Rene Howe created a few chances for Bedford before half time and none were finished. The two side were level at the break. Both teams needed a decent enough team talk to motivate them to push forwards for a winner. Adam North in goal for North Leigh had a great game as he kept the Bedford players out throughout the game and pulling some great saves off in the process. Crosses were flying in from everywhere but neither side managed to make anything to useful out of them. Nearer to the end of the game North Leigh started going for a goal and came close a few times. A few corners were whipped in but cleared and some decent chances were missed. In injury time Bedford had a decent chance and Rene Howe was tackled by a North Leigh defender then he went down injured. Another North Leigh player went down clutching his face claiming he had been pushed. Weirdly, Rene Howe was booked. The game finished 0-0.

This keeps Bedford 3 points clear at the top of the table despite drawing. They failed to capitalise on a great chance to extend their lead at the top of the league after AFC Dunstable drew with Berkhamsted. North Leigh remain in the play-offs but can slip out if Welwyn Garden City pick up 2 points out of two games in hand.
