Bedford Town have time to regroup as they have a week with no matches.

Their Southern League Cup match against Peterborough Sports, which was due to be played on Tuesday was postponed because of Sport’s replay in the Emirates FA Cup.

With no match last Saturday either, Bedford next travel away to North Leigh in the League.

After a trio of draws, including matches against near neighbours Barton Rovers and Biggleswade FC they’ll be wanting to get back to winning ways.

Their away trip to Barton Rovers saw Bedford go behind twice but thanks to two equalising goals from Tre Mitford they came away with a point. They would have expected more, especially as the home side went down to ten men during the first half.

Last Tuesday it was Biggleswade FC who visited the Bright Management Eyrie. It was their first competitive game at the ground, having been promoted to the Southern League Division One Central this season.

The visitors were the first to score when Seam McMonagie hit home midway through the first half.

Eagles new boy, midfielder Callum Milne, recently signed from Wisbech Town scored on his home debut, getting the equaliser with five minutes remaining of the first half.  He made no mistake in his piledriver shot that gave the visiting keeper little chance.

Despite their best efforts, Bedford couldn’t find the net again and had to be content with their third draw, which leaves them midtable.

North Leigh who the Eagles face Saturday are currently two places and one point better than Bedford, with two wins a draw and a loss in the League.

Last season saw two wins for the Eagles against North Leigh, and they’ll be looking to do similar, and get the season back on track this time.

North Leigh play at Eynsham Park, North Leigh, Witney, Oxfordshire, OX29 6SL. Kick off is at 3pm.
