Biggleswade Town centre-forward and assistant boss Brett Donnelly says “once we click, someone’s going to get a slapping” after the Waders earned their fourth straight draw, finishing 2-2 at Rushall Olympic.

The Langford Road side remained unbeaten after their sixth game of the season, coming from behind for the fourth consecutive game to take a point on Saturday.

Goals from Daniel Waldron and Gurjit Singh forced the Waders to equalise twice, with Matt Ball and Tom Smith scoring to secure a 2-2 draw at Dales Lane.

Speaking to CometSport, Donnelly, who started the game up front said: “Sloppy start again, you can’t afford to do that.

“We didn’t prepare as well as we have done. You could see in the warm-up we were off it and we were all over the shop in the first-half.

“At half-time I would’ve taken a point but we were the team pushing for the win second-half.

“The draws are getting a bit annoying but we’re unbeaten, and I’d have snapped your hand off for that six weeks ago.”

The Pics were 1-0 up inside two-minutes, as Ben Lund crossed for Waldron to overpower Jack Bradshaw and nod in - infuriating manager Lee Allinson in the dugout.

The Waders struggled to organise but a moment of individual brilliance from Ball equaled the scores. The number 10 turned two challenges before rifling low into the corner for 1-1 after 26-minutes.

However, Rushall went in 2-1 up at half-time, after Junior Smikle nipped down the left and cut the ball back to Singh, who tapped in from 10-yards.

The Waders improved immediately after the restart. Matt Ball’s corner was powered in by Smith’s header for 2-2. The Waders took control of the second-half but couldn’t find a winner.

Donnelly said: “It’s exciting, we’ve got issues and we’re still able to come from behind and look for the winner. There’s a lot of positives.

“We had our first team night out afterwards and 14 players turned up. Not many clubs get that and it shows they’ve come together quickly.

“If you’ve got a good team spirit, you’re halfway there.”
