Bedworth travelled by coach looking to extend their unbeaten run to 11 games.
The first half was hardly an incident packed 45 minutes of football with neither side managing to get a grip on the game. With the pitch being in horse racing terms heavy it wasn’t a day where free flowing football was going to be on show. With both sides not creating much it took until extra time in the half for the first real shot in anger and it was after some good work from John and Sawyers that the ball fell to Luke Keen who’s shot from the angle went over the bar.

If the first half started slow the second started like an express train with Eesa Sawyers having to be replaced at half time due to injury it was the fresh man Ishmael Dawson who this time was the provider for last weeks star man Luke Keen when with seconds on the clock from the right Dawson found Keen who made no mistake to put the visitors 1 nil up and into the lead. This was to be Keens last involvement in the game as in the process of scoring he tweaked his hamstring and couldn’t carry on. Wisbech rallied after the goal and for the next 5 minutes put a bit of pressure on the Bedworth back line but they could not produce any quality to test Sam Lomax in the Bedworth goal. Bedworth could have doubled their lead when a ball from Luke Rowe saw Dawson bear down on goal but the sticky pitch held the ball up before the Bedworth man could get his shot away. Dawson again went through 10 minutes later this time he beat Pearson in the Wisbech goal but his shot just went wide of the post. It looked like it was going to be a nervy last quarter of the game for The Greenbacks with only a solitary goal but it was with a bit of fortune that Bedworth doubled their lead when a ball forward from John picked out the run of Lockett who touched the ball back to Blythe who’s shot was straight at Pearson who with no pressure let the ball go through him and into the goal without the ball even hitting the back of the net. Bedworth controlled the rest of the game and ensured that they came away with their unbeaten run intact and also a clean sheet to make the long journey home worth it.
