Biggleswade Town were held 0-0 at Langford Road on Saturday against Banbury United, as the Waders struggled to turn their dominance into goals on Non-League Day.

The Waders are still the only side unbeaten in the Evo-Stik Southern Central Premier, as they were held at home to Banbury on Saturday, despite a flurry of golden opportunities.

On a sunny and un-seasonably warm day, the early stages saw no chances for either side.

The Waders were a little disjointed while Banbury looked to have settle quicker. However, the first clear-cut came after 30 minutes, falling to Joe White.

Some clever play from Peter Clark set-up Martel Powell to cross, and the striker on-loan from Stevenage was allowed a free-header inside the box. He flicked it wide, and should have scored.

The Waders began to dominate after the chance, and forced more quality opportunities. However, the sides went in 0-0 at the break.

They found two more golden opportunities after the restart, with Clark missing what should have been an easy tap-in and Powell blasting over from close-range.

The Waders were dominant in midfield and strong at the back but couldn’t find a finishing touch. Banbury tried a late charge, but the Waders dealt with them well, and the game ended goalless.
