Banbury United boss Mike Ford was full of praise for his side after they extended their unbeaten Evo-Stik Southern League run to four games.

But Saturday’s 1-1 premier division draw against Biggleswade Town at the Banbury Plant Hire Community Stadium was a game Ford felt his side could, and should, have won despite going behind.

That’s the fourth game on the trot we’ve gone behind and, apart from the FA Cup defeat, we’ve managed to dig something out of each one

Ricky Johnson cancelled out Inih Effiong’s first half opener with his second penalty of the game, having seen Ian Brown save one before the break.

Ford said: “It was two points dropped and we should have won the game.

“But that’s the fourth game on the trot we’ve gone behind and, apart from the FA Cup defeat, we’ve managed to dig something out of each one which shows great character. “We didn’t quite get across the line but they had a late chance and if that had gone in we would have been even more disappointed.

“Having gone behind we showed great character to get back in it. I thought we very good, we created lots of chances, we had seven shots on target in the first half and missed a penalty, but Ian Brown is a very good keeper.
