Woodford United’s season hit a new low on Tuesday night when they were steamrollered 10-0 by play-off chashing Biggleswade at Byfield Road.

Paul Oddy’s men have suffered several heavy defeats so far this season, but Tuesday’s was the heaviest of them all.

Oddy’s young side were never in the hunt, and will now have to pick themselves up for Saturday’s trip to Leighton Town, but morale must be at an all-time low with United having lost their past three games to nil, conceding 20 goals in the process.

They have also conceded 37 goals in their past eight matches of a miserable season.

They are rooted to the bottom of the table, without a point from 32 fixtures.

Tomorrow’s trip to Leighton is the first of three successive away games, the others at Aylesbury on Tuesday and then at Ashford Town next Saturday.

In the UCL Premier Division, Long Buckby will be hoping they can get back in action when they host Kempton Rovers at Station Road (ko 3pm).

The fixture is the one that was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch last Saturday.

Buckby know exactly what to expect from their visitors, having played them a month ago in a game that ended 2-2.

Buckby are seven points clear of Kempston in the league standings.
