As goalless draws goes this one had plenty of chances but Potters Bar Town missed the chance to keep the pressure on the top two in Bostik League North Division at Mildenhall Town.

The Scholars made the trip one week removed from having their winning run of four broken by Aveley.

And they created enough but found home goalkeeper Jake Jessup in outstanding form.

He made numerous saves, some described by his manager Dean Greygoose as “outstanding”.

The hosts had their chances too but their best effort came back off the upright.

The Scholars are now down to fourth Canvey Island’s 2-1 win over Maldon & Tiptree, although they still have games in hand on the top two.

However, it is the Essex side who are next up for the Scholars in what is now a must-win game, or at least must-not-lose, at the Pakex Stadium on Saturday.
