Banbury United manager Paul Davis saw his side keep a welcome clean sheet at Biggleswade Town but one point was hardly enough at this stage of the Evo-Stik Southern League season.

The Puritans drew 0-0 at Biggleswade in Saturday’s premier division clash but they still fell further behind Arlesey Town who won at Chesham United.

Davis said: “It was a fair result, a clean sheet is somewhere to start and we’ve not kept one for a long time. Leigh Bedwell kept us in the game early on but we’ve had chances late on.

“We’ve taken five points in the last five games. We’ve not played too badly but we’ve given Chippenham Town a three-goal start, let slip a 2-0 lead at Arlesey and now kept a clean sheet at Biggleswade.

“We’ve got seven games to go and there are plenty of points up for grabs. We’re playing some teams who don’t really have anything to play for but we’ve got to go to places and get wins which we’re not expected to get.

“The gap is bigger but we’re still trying to catch Arlesey to start with.”
