Cirencester score goal in added time to take the points against Biggleswade.

Cirencester Town  2 – 1  Biggleswade Town

 

A competitive match saw Cirencester take the lead when BRAD HOOPER scored with a low drive from 25 yards that took a slight deflection past unsighted visiting ‘keeper, Ian Brown, to enter the net inside his right post.

Biggleswade had a penalty appeal rejected as their top scorer Inih Effiong went to ground six minutes from the end of the first half.

With the advantage of the slope in the second half Cirencester pushed forward looking to increase their lead but Biggleswade were dangerous on the counter and Shayne Anson and Matt Bower had to be on their toes to keep them out.

As the game entered the final ten minutes Biggleswade drew level after a long throw-in from their right flank bobbed about near the penalty spot until IAN REES managed to convert off the underside of the bar.

On the stroke of full time Josh Langley pulled off a superb save to prevent Biggleswade taking the lead and the Cirencester response was a powerful header from Charlie Griffin but Brown made a fine reaction save to keep the score level.

The game looked destined for a draw until Ant Brown played a ball into the box in ‘added time’ for the determined MATT LIDDIARD to produce a clever looping volley that cleared Brown and dropped inside the far left post for a late, late winner.
