The Waders dominated for much of the Non-League Day clash, but couldn’t finish the golden chances they created - and had to settle for their sixth draw of the season.

However - after nine games of Allinson’s first campaign with his brand new side - they’re one of only two sides still unbeaten across the four step-three divisions.

Speaking to CometSport after the game, Allinson said: “I’m gutted for them (the players) today because I thought we played the best we have all season in the second half.

“I think we deserved to win, but at the same time we’ve drawn with a team who are in the top five with aspirations for the play-offs themselves.

“We’ve drawn six now and I’d rather have won three and lost three because we’d be on better points but it’s fantastic that a side like us have gone so long unbeaten, I didn’t expect it.”

In their next game, the Waders travel to St Ives Town on Tuesday, before returning to Langford Road on Saturday to host Coalville Town.

Allinson said his side are starting to click now, and said there were ‘loads of positives’ going into their next fixtures, where the rock solid defence and dominant midfield will hope to have some more settled strikers ahead of them.
