The Bees produced a battling performance in a bad-tempered encounter away to the league leaders, who had yet to concede a goal this season. Ludgershall began with some good football, putting sustained pressure on the Bees defence. They appeared to be coping fairly comfortably until a cross from the right wasn’t cleared and Ludgershall made the most of the opportunity to open their account. The Bees produced a couple of breaks to give themselves attempts on their opponents goal but neither of them were on target. Ludgershall continued to dominate, particularly on the physical side, and the Bees finished the half looking a distant second best.
The second half was a completely different affair, with the Bees stepping up to the mark with a strong and sustained physical effort which produced several attempts on the Ludgershall goal. Most notably Charlie Tubb found himself completely free with only the goal-keeper to beat but fluffed his shot wide of the target. With the game now very even, with 10 minutes to go however it was Ludgershall who sealed the win, Nathaniel Taylor leaving far too much space on his near post. By the end of the game Ludgershall were producing some very sustained complaining to the referee about the physical side of the Bees game, but it was quite clear that this was because of the Bees refusal in the second half to lie down and allow their opponents to dominate them in the same way as they had in the first half.
