LONG Buckby were left wondering what might have been after dominating large periods of play against Wellingborough Town on Saturday.

But despite taking command of the majority of the game the home side did go a goal down in the first-half.

The visitors got off to a perfect start when Danny Webster put them into an early lead on 29 minutes. and they hung on to the half-time whistle despite increasing pressure from the Buckby attack.

Ever-reliable Dan Holman had probably Buckby’s best chance in the first-half when his shot crashed against the crossbar.

But despite trailing at half- time Buckby refused to give up the battle and Ashley Robinson had his efforts rewarded when he scored the equaliser from close range after a period of sustained pressure.

“To be fair after 20 minutes we were well on top. Holman hit the bar and the keeper made one or two good saves,” said Bucks’ boss Glenn Botterill.
