The Waders kept their unbeaten record with the draw, maintaining their status as the only side not to lose this season in the Evo-Stik Southern League Central.

Biggleswade Town

Sam Donkin: 6 – Had no saves to make in the first-half but struggled with his distribution. He never got to grips with the wind at his back, and saw several long-kicks float straight out of play.

Jack Bradshaw: 7 – Didn’t have too much to do but did the simple things well.

Lucas Perry: 8 – Contained former Waders teammate Greg Kaziboni expertly on his left side in the first-half, and was efficient and disciplined throughout.

Kieron Forbes: 7 – Effective in his sweeper role, and almost sent the Waders 1-0, when his effort from 25-yard was plucked from going into the top-corner in the first-half.

Josh Urquhart: 8 – Did well smothering the visitors in the first-half, and looked powerful and in control at the back.

David Longe-King: 7 – A little shaky in the first-half on the ball, but alongside Urquhart marshalled the back-line well and used his strength to smother Banbury on a few occasions.

Jonny McNamara: 7 – Always positive and battling, but didn’t find space in the first-half. Could have had a tap-in had Joe White left it for him in the first-half, but he kept the Waders tempo high until he was substituted after 70 minutes.

Peter Clark: 7 – The electric midfielder was excellent at finding good positions, and his bursting runs and accurate passes were always a threat to Banbury in the first-half. He’ll be disappointed with his poor miss at the start of the second period. Continued to find good positions in the second-half but wasn’t as effective.

Joe White: 5 – Disappointing in the first-half, the striker looked off the pace. Was contained by the Banbury defence until he found space for a free-header from eight yards after Martel Powell’s cross, but his header went wide and he should have scored.

Matt Ball: 7 – At the heart of everything going forward for the Waders, Ball’s long passes were disjointed early in the game. He began to settle after 25 minutes, and his expert vision and classy dribbling kept the visitors under pressure.

Martel Powell: 7 – The winger wasn’t supplied with the through-balls he wanted in the first-half, but was impressive in tight situations and his passes were accurate.

Substitutes:

Soloman Nwamboukei: 6 – On for McNamara after 70 minutes.

Brett Donnelly: 6 – Hauled for a late charge, replacing Martel Powell.
