After the disappointment of the last-gasp defeat against....
....AFC Rushden & Diamonds, the young Doughboys were determined to put things right against league leaders Whitworths.
If the neighbours from `over the fence` could beat the Doughboys then they would be crowned champions of the West Division.
And it certainly didn`t start well for the hosts as they fell a goal down inside 2 minutes!
But the home side battled back and, after stemming the tide, became more and more dangerous as the game wore on.
Indeed, the young Doughboys dominated the second period and should have scored more than the one goal, which was well created and finished by sub Kallan Yearwood midway through the half.
But it was, nevertheless, an excellent display against the champions-elect.
