Bedworth hosted fellow Northern Premier Midlands division side Harborough Town in the FA Trophy a game that was rescheduled from the Saturday due to the sad passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Before the game there was an impeccable minutes silence for reflection of her Majesty’s life.
Bedworth started the game well and had by far the better of the game in a scrappy first half but for a great save from the Elliott Taylor in the Harborough goal from a Curvin Ellis shit and a goal line clearance from Tyler Haddows follow up Bedworth would have taken the lead. Haddows pace caused issues for the Harborough back line all night and he was unlucky when he charged down Taylor and the keepers clearance ricocheted off the Bedworth man but as Bedworths luck all season the ball harmlessly spun away from the Harborough goal. With half time approaching Harborough started to get a foothold in the game but still could not trouble Lomax in the Bedworth goal.

The second half started with a wealth of substitutes by Harborough with them bringing on all 3 of their allocated reserves at the 45 minute mark. WIth 2 minutes of the restart one of those players broke the deadlock when a low cross into the Bedworth box was met by Joel Carta unmarked at the far post who with the assistance of the inside of the post gave the visitors the lead. Bedworth pushed for the equaliser and created numerous chances but just could not get that breakthrough with Taylor in good form preventing Haddow from scoring the equaliser sticking out his left foot to divert the ball wide of the mark. With time running out the Greenbacks threw everything they could at Harborough with Edjenguele being pushed upfront. The best chance though fell to the unlikeliest of players when a corner in the dying seconds was met by the head of Bedworth Keeper Lomax who put his header just wide of the target.
