North Leigh’s survival chances suffered a blow after the heavy 4-0 loss to Dunstable Town now sees them 5 points adrift of safety.
The opening half an hour was an evenly contested match between the two sides with several chances not being capitalised on. Blues captain Arel Amu nearly opened the scoring after just 11 seconds but fired wide from a brilliantly weighted through ball.
It was Amu who opened the scoring just after the half hour mark and it was double trouble for the Millers as a second goal in 2 minutes was conceded after Saul WIlliams nestled his free-kick into the bottom corner.
Dunstable came out the stronger side in the second half with North Leigh struggling to create any opportunities in the final third with Dunstable back 4 playing a very well prepared plan at keeping Seacole and Landers at bay.
Saul and Arel both capped off good performances for the Blues each getting a brace by the end of the match. The loss keeps the Millers bottom of the table going into the new year on 11 points but all hope is not lost.
Captain Ben Brown has said this is a very important time for the Millers with 4 games in the next 2 weeks and upcoming fixtures against fellow strugglers Kempston Rovers and Aylesbury. “I’m very confident that we will start to pick up results. We have a very strong squad now and everyone knows we have to give 110% with everything we do to get the points” says Ben.
