Evo-Stik League Southern Division One Central  (Saturday 15 October)

Saints can feel hard done after conceding two late goals that negated a lead they had held for most of the game but it was the energy-sapping efforts of the previous week that ultimately cost them.

Bedford, looking to continue their recent winning streak in the league, started the brighter of the two sides, twice going close in the early stages. Saints were hampered by a first minute injury to Ruddock Yala, who finally hobbled off after 21 minutes.

When they did finally splutter into action, they relied heavily on the force of Adam Kirby and the unbounded engergy of Jake Cass to supply the forward momentum.

By now finding space and time down their left flank, Bedford took the lead after 26 minutes with a good finish by Nathan Frater that sailed into far corner fom an angle.

Saints had a chance to pull things back when Cass was pulled down just outside the box and Craige Tomkins was unlucky to hit the post from the curling free kick. Cass was again in the thick of things as a throw in on the left was worked out to Adam Kirby outside the area and he placed his shot just inside the post for a deserved equaliser.

Tyrone Pink, the hammer of Arlesey in midweek, was paying the price for those efforts with a quiet afternoon but a run in stoppage time drew a foul and free kick and ultimately a corner as Saints pushed hard to gain the advantage following a strong spell. The kick by Craige Tomkins sailed over everyone and nestled in the far corner to secure the interval lead they wanted.

With Bedford stepping up the pace and Saints beginning to look leggy, the second half was one that demanded a stern rearguard action to protect what they had. George Fenton, often having to cover for others, was outstanding in the home defence as the Eagles swooped and flapped around the Chalfont goal. Garry Malone made a superb one handed save to push away a header as nerves began to tighten. More than anything, Saints needed a rallying voice and probably a tactical reappraisal but only the unnerving tick of the clock winding down was heard.

Looking for anything to give themselves a way back into the game, a clumsy challenge in the area by Glenn Yala gave Watkins the opportunity to force the referee to make a decision and so he did. Luke Knight smashed the resulting penalty straight down the middle of the goal to level the scores. 

Minutes later and things got worse as Saints switched off at a throw in giving Adam Watkins room to drive in a speculative shot. On target or not, it took a heavy and cruel deflection off George Fenton and past the wrongfooted Garry Malone.

Bedford could hardly believe their good fortune and ran out the clock to secure the win they probably hadn't expected at the start of play. For Saints, they need to recharge their batteries as the games are coming thick and fast, beginning with a home game against AFC Dunstable on Tuesday. 

Saints:  Garry Malone, Ruddock Yala (Glenn Yala 21), Dave Thomas, George Fenton, Craig Carby, Adam Kirby, Tyrone Pink (Jack Mullan 78), Alan Hedley, Craige Tomkins (Kofi Lockhart-Adams 69), Charlie Strutton, Jake Cass.
