Biggleswade Town 1 Stourbridge 2 - Report

By Nathan Judah | Stourbridge FC | Published:

A late wonder-strike secured Stourbridge an impressive come-back victory against in-from Biggleswade Town.

Late Stourbridge win

The result - the only game played in the division - dragged the Glassboys closer to the play-off places whilst they still have at least two games in hand on all their rivals.

In a quiet opening, Treymayne Charles had the only effort of note as he fired tamely at the Stourbridge keeper from the edge of the area.

Biggleswade came perilously close to taking the lead midway through the half when the Glassboys’ defence failed to deal with a whipped corner and Shane Bush sliced over when well-placed.

The hosts had won ten out of their last 13 games and their quality showed as they breached the stubborn Glassboys defence to take the lead just before the break, Dylan Williams tapping in from close range.

Ian Long’s half-time team talk worked wonders for Stourbridge though as they equalised soon after the interval through a Jordan Williams guided header.

The goal gave the visitors the momentum, but they struggled to break down Biggleswade who nearly retook the lead against the run of play as a Charlie Pattison effort from the edge of the area grazed the crossbar.

Andre Landell then provided the defining moment, his bicycle kick riffling into the Biggleswade net to give the visitors the lead - a goal worthy of winning any game of football.

It was a lead the hosts were unable to challenge as Stourbridge earned a creditable victory against a promotion-chasing rival.
