We started the game slowly and the windy conditions made playing football very difficult. I was very disappointed to concede two sloppy goals and then miss a penalty but we were then thrown a lifeline by scoring a goal before half time.

I felt that from the time we were awarded the penalty to the end of the first half and for the whole of the second half we were the better team. We scored a very good equaliser and left ourselves enough time to get the winner. Unfortunately this did not materialise and we had to settle for a point.

The positives we could take from the game were our spirited fightback, the continuation of our unbeaten run, the fact that this was the third consecutive we have scored more than one goal and finally keeping our distance from Bedworth in the league table.

We all enjoyed the spotlight put on us by the Daily Mail on Saturday. The reporter Matt Barlow did an excellent job and his article certainly helped to put us on the map. All in all it was a very good experience.
