Leighton and Bedford played out a 6 goal thriller
On a slick,lovely surface and a larger pitch Leighton who were down to bare bones due to injuries knew they had a tough task
And that proved to be the case when while Leighton were sleeping in the first half Bedford took a two goal lead !!
On a larger pitch Leighton took a while to get to grips with the extra space and extra running required. Bailey who was in goal for the injured Jamie could do nothing with Bedfords opening two goal.
In defence Freddie, William and Joe were making good use of the wider pitch and starting attacks. Evan was up against a small giant in Bedfords defence and had to cope with a goal keeper who thought he was playing in Midfield !!
Leighton then had an amazing half time team talk. They all knew what needed to be done and what was going to happen... And sure enough after the break Leighton hit back with two goals through Evan and Oliver.
It was now wave after wave of attack - Billy, Charlie P , Ella and Ryan were all going close and it was only a matter of time before Leighton found what they thought was a winner
And sure enough it was Freddie who slotted home with 5 mins to go - Sadly Leighton couldn't hold on and it ended up 3-3... However what a game and Leighton can be really proud of how they battled back
Man of the Match was all of them for a fantastic performance second half
Next up a home game V's Kempston
