Langford’s winning streak ended with a 1-1 draw against Risborough Rangers on Saturday – in an SSML fixture featuring two weakened sides, two goals, and very little else of note.
It was the Reds who made the early breakthrough with Sean Murray scoring with a near post header from a delightful Dale Turney cross.
Within three minutes, Rangers were level when Vinny Lanone buried a rebound from the Langford keeper’s legs from close range.
Neither team found any rhythm with both resorting to the long ball forward. Langford made the best chances with Ashley and Brooks going close. The home team ended the half the stronger of the two.
The second half started with Rangers pushing forward and the Reds seemingly unable to string passes together or keep possession.
Rangers, for all their pressure, were not able to seriously threaten the home keeper. As the half went on Langford tried to play football, but ran out of ideas in the final third.
Langford: Karl Gudgin, Stephen Redmond Deon Putnam, Sean Murray, Michael Moss, Tyler Ingham, Stephen Brooks, Craig Meyrick (capt), Dylan Gittens, Dale Turney, Kai Ashley.
