There could be no doubting the effort of the Bucks as they entertained Leamington for the first time in their history. It was a fast-flowing, entertaining game in the rain, with the visitors scoring with one of their mass breakouts from defence and the equaliser coming from Mace Goodrich, a 25-yarder in the 83rd minute.
There was an excellent midweek attendance of 630, watching goalkeeper Theo Richardson turn in a man-of-match display, with the visiting 'keeper just as busy. Match Report HERE
Manager Jamie Vermiglio summed it up as being "a difficult game". He said: "We pushed hard for the first 20 minutes, Leamington got in to the game and threatened us with their breaks, then we were spurred on after they scored in the 65th minute. We dominated the last quarter and fully deserved the point.
"Credit where it's due, Leamington were the better side towards the end of the first half and early in the second. But even when we were up against it we looked as if we could score.
"After we went behind the lads reacted brilliantly and started to play really good stuff, moving the ball well and getting it into the box. It was a top goal from Mace and we've got a point to show for the hard work.
"We have things to learn from the game as we prepare to go to Hereford on Saturday. We've had them watched and we'll be ready. A few players are carrying knocks and tired legs so we've got to get everyone fit and we'll keep looking at who might be available in the transfer market. The squad is still small."
