BRAD FIRES A LATE WIN­NER

The Non-League Football Paper - - EVO-STIK LEAGUE SOUTH - By Matt Webb

SUB­STI­TUTE Brad Wad­kins fired Slough Town to three more points against a dogged Biggleswade side.

The vis­i­tors had taken a first-half lead which was can­celled out by War­ren Har­ris, and then soaked up a huge amount of Slough pres­sure.

Slough car­ried the greater at­tack­ing threat early on but the Waders took the lead on 24 min­utes as Shane Hill got the fi­nal touch to a cor­ner kick.

The hosts piled on the pres­sure and went clos­est through Manny Wil­liams, whose closerange header hit a post.

Biggleswade then nearly added a sec­ond on 40 min­utes with Craig Daniel hit­ting the post via a fan­tas­tic save from Turner – but just a minute later, Slough were level as Har­ris headed in.

The vis­i­tors did well to limit Slough in the sec­ond half, who pressed for a sec­ond goal with James Dob­son be­ing de­nied by Liam Gooch be­fore Chris Flood had an ef­fort dis­al­lowed.

Wad­kins was in­tro­duced on 76 min­utes and he was quick to make an im­pact, scor­ing the win­ning goal less than four min­utes later as Slough’s pres­sure paid off. Matt Lench weaved past two Waders de­fend­ers be­fore play­ing the ball to the big striker.
