BATTLING Bewdley Town bagged a 2-2 draw at second placed Wolves Casuals - but it could have been more.

Bewdley believed they were denied a clear-cut penalty in the closing stages when Russ Godfrey was brought down.

Moments later, Casuals were awarded a penalty themselves in exactly the same circumstances, but Joe Sidaway saved Kieron Miller's spot kick.

The Cassies had taken the lead when the league's leading marksman Miller netted at the second attempt to take his league tally for the season to 30 goals.

Bewdley were soon back on level terms when Sam Prescott converted from a Godfrey corner.

Kyle Brady restored Casuals' lead from another corner but Bewdley refused to lie down and levelled again when a Chris Seekings shot was parried out by Cassies goalkeeper Paul Evans straight into the path of Godfrey who in turn set up Luke Sidaway to score.

Cassies then looked set to steal the points when Prescot was judged to have brought down Miller but Joe Sidaway saved the day to keep Miller's penalty shot at bay.

Bewdley spokesman, Steve Godfrey, said: "We could have snatched victory at the death when Matt Kerby crossed along the face of Casuals' goal, but Russ Godfrey couldn't connect."

Busy Bewdley host Hereford Lads Club this Saturday at the earlier kick-off time of 2.30pm.

Godfrey added: "We managed to get the generator for the floodlights up and running again, but we don't want to take any chances".

However, Bewdley are scheduled to host Smethwick Rangers in a re-arranged fixture next Tuesday night after their previous meeting came to a premature halt owing to floodlight failure.

There will be reduced admission prices for this fixture.

Bewdley have also been drawn at home to high-flying Shrewsbury side Haughmond in the League Cup semi-finals to take place later in the season.
