Biggleswade Town moved up to seventh place in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier League after beating Gosport Borough 2-0 on Saturday.

The visitors started brightly culminating in Tyrell Mitford hitting the woodwork on the half hour after Declan McCarthy played him through but his strike saw the ball bounce off the left post.

The Wades then capitalised by going ahead just before half-time through a goal from home captain Craig Daniels.

The team assembled by the impressive Chris Nunn controlled the second half – against a Gosport side lacking confidence after five successive defeats prior to kick-off – with Lucas Perry notching their second to make it 2-0 just as three minutes of injury time were announced.

Alex Pike’s men remain rooted to the bottom table but Nunn’s side move to seventh as a big week approaches.

The Waders: Gooch, Walker, Perry, Fielding, Hicks, Hoyte, Daniel, Hall (Jarvis) Bowen (Burnett), Parker, Penfold (Montgomery).

Gosport: Cafer, Saidy (Breed), King, Buse (Kimber), Medway, Sanders, Dawson, McCarthy, Mitford, Granger, Smith (Vine).

Referee: Rob Evans

Attendance: 162.
