Bedford FC continued their pre-season matches on Saturday with a 2-1 defeat at home to visitors Eynesbury Rovers from the UCL Premier.

Rovers came out looking the stronger in the first half but Bedford soon pegged them back, taking the early lead through a calm finish at the back post from Tyrone Kelly.

Bedford then went on to have the majority of chances up until the break but just weren’t able to convert them.

The second half brought a change of fortune for Bedford with two goals going against them both which built from the right hand side of the park, however that didn’t seem to deter them with possession rates staying even.

The difference in league status didn’t seem to show and Bedford had their opportunities to bring the game level but just couldn’t find the final finish they were after.

Next up at McMullen Park are Barton Rovers form the Evo-Stik League Division One South on Thursday night.
