A goal in each half condemned Langford to a 2-0 defeat at Baldock Town on Tuesday.

From the kick-off, Baldock put a changed Langford side under pressure from the kick off in this SSML Division One fixture.

Gregson headed narrowly wide from an early corner, Langford playing with only one attacker could not hold onto the ball and Baldock continued to surge forward and pressure the Langford goal.

After 10 minutes Kim Forsythe limped out of the action causing Baldock to reshuffle. Langford had a couple of attacks both of which ended with Johnson shooting wide.

On 29 minutes following a Baldock cross from the left, Ian Robinson found room in the six yard area to tap in for 1-0.

Langford woke up and started passing the ball, the game moved from end to end, without either goalkeeper having to make a save.

Langford’s best chance came when Scotney on the right fed Johnson who’s short cross was just too high for Hunt to get his head to. Langford continued to push forward, Waite shooting wide from distance, and Hunt crossing to Johnson who again shot wide.

The second half started with more end to end football, both teams enjoying possession without threatening to score. Then on 55 minutes a mix up between goalkeeper and defender in Langford’s area allowed Holland in to score Baldock’s second 2-0.

Despite reverting to three at the back, the fight drained from Langford, who still did not appear to have their attacking options sorted. Baldock played out the last 30 minutes without too many threats to their goal.
