HATFIELD Town failed to grab that all-important win in their battle to stay up in the SSML Premier Division as they drew 0-0 against Biggleswade United.

The basement clash was played out at Top Field, home of Hitchin Town FC as Hatfield can no longer play home games at The Gosling Stadium due to stadium requirements.

Although many in the ranks were disappointed to only collect a point at the final whistle, there were some positives to take from the game.

It was The Blueboys’ first clean-sheet since January 28 when they defeated Hillingdon Borough 2-0 away.

Gary Coley’s return to the centre of defence certainly helped towards this achievement.

It also ended a run of six-straight defeats, and was their first point since Hatfield defeated Hanwell Town 2-1 away on February 28.

Hatfield, with stalwart Richard Cooke taking over team affairs following the sacking of Darryn Stewart, were given a major let-off early in the first half.

A bouncing ball struck Coley on the arm in the penalty area, but luckily for keeper Sam Lacey, the Biggleswade man fired the spot-kick wide.

Both sides had their chances, but in the end, a draw was a fair result.
