Biggleswade Town put their first points on the board with a creditable 1-1 draw at Cambridge City on Monday night.

It was a better showing than Saturday’s opening Southern League Premier defeat and certainly the Waders looked the most likely team to come away with the points.

Against the run of play, and with their first meaningful attack, City number nine Tunde Adenumi got his head to a ball close in to hit the back of the visitors’ net on 18 minutes.

Biggleswade, the more fluent side, set about repairing the damage.

A free kick on the half hour saw Inih Effiong get his second of the season with a well taken free kick.

City then responded and brought two fine saves from Ian Brown but perhaps the most interesting feature of the first half was the battle going between City scorer Adenunmi and Evan Key.

The second half was a fairly lame affair although Parker and Daniel both hit the bar with stunning volleys.

Biggleswade visit Cirencester on Saturday and host Kings Langley on Tuesday.
