A single goals from Bedford’s Adam Drakulic was enough to see them take all 3 points this weekend from league leaders Biggleswade FC. There may have been 16 place between the two sides but Biggleswade knew they would have to be at their best having been taken to the wire by the B’s on the Tuesday night. A rejuvenated Bedford under new manager James Petty started brightly and the game plan came to fruition early on when they countered on 20 minutes and Drakulic scored in a move straight from the training ground. Bedford could have had a few more as well if the passing in front of goal had been more clinical but they still went into the break ahead. As was expected Biggleswade threw everything at the B’s in the second half in a bid to get a least a point from the encounter so as to fend of the chasing pack but a resilient Bedford dug in to see the game out.
‘It’s no secret,” Petty said of the upturn in fortunes since he took over the reins. “Hard work, endeavour, resilience – we displayed all of them today along with some good football. We scored at the right time to give us a foothold in the game and we showed how to manage a game and see it out. The B’s go again at home this Saturday to Southall.
