Buckingham Town moved out of the bottom two in UCL Division One after an impressive 1-1 draw at Northampton Spencer on Tuesday.

The Robins are now up to 17th and above Wootton Blue Cross on goal difference having played a game less.

Neil Griffiths said: “It was a huge point for us against a Spencer side that have only lost one game at home.

“The game was full of end-to-end action, we had some cracking chances to win it – Kyle Stimpson had a backwards header loop over the bar and Pat Diamond went on a superb run and got a shot away.

“Dom once again showed his class with a great lob to score from Ben Shepherd’s through ball. Everyone was fantastic and gave a significant contribution to the result.

“Once again it was another fantastic show of our character as Spencer started very brightly, got a deserved lead and looked completely on top but these lads have got a resilient streak now.

“We battled back and forced our way back into the contest after looking like it could have been a tough night.”

Buckingham face a huge match later today when they visit bottom side Burton Park Wanderers in their penultimate game of the season with a win essential for their survival hopes.

Griffiths added: “We can’t wait for it and it’s exciting to be involved in a game that has so much meaning at this stage of the season.

“I don’t think any of us want the season to end, we are chomping at the bit and Saturday cannot come soon enough.”
