Missed chance to put pressure on Long Melford

Manager Stuart Wardley insists Saffron Walden Town missed a great opportunity to put pressure on the chasing pack by drawing with Woodbridge Town.
Shaun Avis scored a 23rd minute goal but it was all the Bloods could muster in a game they dominated at Catons Lane - see right for report.
The result meant Walden top the Thurlow Nunn First Division by two points when it could have been four.
Wardley called it a missed opportunity.
“It was a great chance to put pressure on Long Melford and we failed to capitalise. It wasn’t the best weekend for me as a manager.
“I thought we looked lacklustre, lethargic and we struggled in areas that we’re normally good at - it wasn’t one of our best days.”
Wardley’s side is in the middle of a record-breaking season - they extended their streak of unbeaten games to 24 - so he was prepared to call it just a blip.
“It definitely was,” he said. “We created quite a lot of chances, which was a positive, but we didn’t take them. On another day it could have been four or five [goals].”
