Banbury United 1 St Neots Town 1

United take the lead through Conor McDonagh in the first half but are pegged back by a Dylan Williams goal early in the second half

There was plenty of endeavour in the first 25 minutes but neither side created any chances of note. At this point Banbury had a very good spell though and would take the lead on 31 minutes when a neat one-two down the left between Elliot Sandy and Jefferson Louis saw the former then pass through to Conor McDonagh eight yards out who did well to make room for a shot, firing the ball past Mike Emery in the St Neots goal.

St Neots finally asked a question of Banbury goalkeeper Jack Harding in the 42nd minute when Dion Sembie-Ferris forced the custodian into a save with a shot from the edge of the penalty area.

A minute before the interval Tom Winters saw his shot from inside the penalty area down the left well saved by Emery, the ball coming back to the Banbury winger who crossed into the centre where Louis rose six yards out only to be very unfortunate to see his bullet header smash against the crossbar, the ball then being hacked away by a defender for a corner.

St Neots were much improved early in the second half. Sembie-Ferris had a clear chance early on but his header went straight at Harding. With St Neots dominating proceedings it was thus no surprise when they equalised on 54 minutes. A long throw from the right by Johnny Herd was poorly defended and went right through to Dylan Williams who struck the ball home from the edge of the six yard box.

Though Banbury responded initially well to being pegged back, St Neots would as the half developed have the better of the game and look the more likely to grab a winner. That said Banbury went close on a couple of occasions, firstly on 70 minutes a Sandy effort was cleared off the line by a St Neots defender and three minutes from time a cross from the right saw a Louis header from eight yards look destined for the back of the net but Emery pulled off an excellent save. It would have been very harsh on St Neots if they had returned to Cambridgeshire with nothing though!
