The Eagles welcome Nuneaton Borough to the Eyrie in a massive game for the run-in. This game has been up in the air for a while as weather conditions have meant this fixture has been postponed several times.
Bedford most recently lost 2-0 against Alvechurch in a game where the Eagles may have felt like they could have got something out of the game. A first half penalty miss from Connor Tomlinson proved costly as Alvechurch scored two second half goals to get the win.
It has been an awful spell lately for Bedford as relegation looms. The Eagles have lost eight league games in a row and have failed to score in the last five. It’s been a tough time, but the only way is up from here.
In recent weeks, two sides have been relegated from the Southern League Premier Division Central as Hednesford Town and AFC Rushden & Diamonds finally faced their inevitable fate. The Eagles are ten points adrift from safety with six games to go.
Nuneaton Borough sit in a comfortable fifth place firmly inside the play-offs now. Borough have earnt sixty-nine points so far this season with six matches to go.
In recent games, they have had unpredictable form. They most recently beat Bromsgrove Sporting 4-0 but have only picked up two wins from their last five.
Last time out, Nuneaton beat the Eagles 2-1 at Liberty Way in October. Borough took the lead through Jaden Charles before Charley Sanders equalised. Matt Stenson scored the winner a nearly unrecognisable Eagles team nowadays.
