The Non-League Football Paper - - EVO-STIK LEAGUE SOUTHERN CENTRAL AND - By Charles Ben­way

DAN Flem­ing missed a sec­ond-half penalty as Ash­ford Town were forced to set­tle for a point against Bed­ford Town, in a tight match at Robert Parker Sta­dium.

The hosts took a fifth­minute lead through Kam English – who was sent through on goal by Flem­ing be­fore he rounded the keeper and slot­ted in.

Ash­ford were inches away from a sec­ond as English flashed a low ball across the face of goal which nar­rowly evaded sev­eral at­tack­ers.

Bed­ford hit back min­utes later as Lee Roache planted a header into the net to level the scores.

Flem­ing had the chance to earn all three points from the spot but he blazed wildly over as the game pe­tered out to a draw.
