Biggleswade Town earned a draw at Gosport on Saturday despite not being able to field a regular goalkeeper.

With all three town keepers injured, midfielder Craig Daniel donned the gloves and took over duties between the sticks. The home side attacked from the start with Pat Suraci sending a low shot past the far post. At the other end Nathan Hicks was presented with a shooting chance with quarter of an hour gone but dragged his effort across the face of goal.

Soon after, Patrick O’Flaherty had to beat away a powerful shot from Jack Bowen and the same player was denied soon after when his header was well saved. There were shouts for a Borough penalty when Olusanya went down in the area but the referee was not impressed and booked him for diving.

Ben Wright produced the home side’s best first-half effort with a shot from outside the area but Daniel pushed his shot away. In the second half Wright headed wide for Gosport while for the visitors Robbie Parker drilled a shot past the post.
