We always knew it would be a tough game going in.

Highworth are six places above Marlborough in the league and beat us earlier in the season. For this reason, we had to come out strong and persevere throughout at Elms Recreation Ground in Swindon on Sunday.

We had a challenging game of high intensity tackles and even a red card which resulted in the last fifteen minutes being short a player.

Regardless, we kept the intensity through to the end and it paid off with a nil/nil draw against a team who expected to beat us.

The point earned will help us to gain confidence as the season winds down with some big games ahead of us.
