26th November - AFC Dunstable 1 Uxbridge 2

After the amount of blood, sweat and tears left on the pitch after the Barton draw midweek, you would have not thought it was the same AFC team that took to the field against Uxbridge.

Looking to complete their first league double of the season, it was the Reds who wanted the points more and that is what they got. AFC will have to wait to see if they can complete a double till Tuesday night, when they travel to Histon.

The 1st half of this game was nothing to write home about, as it was devoid of any chances for both sides.

Half time: AFC Dunstable 0 Uxbridge 0

With the opening half so dour, the points were there for who ever wanted them. It was the visitors that drew first blood on the hour. From an AFC corner, they broke with pace and a neat finish from Matt Woods gave them the lead. Looking like AFC needed more impetus, BJ Christie was introduced and he made an instant impact, as he drew a foul in the box and a penalty was awarded. Up stepped Jermaine Hall, but his spot kick was saved by Paul McCarthy.

Buoyed by this, it gave Uxbridge confidence and they stretched their lead on 74 minutes. A cross from the left found Wayne Carter unmarked to head home.

So 2-0 down and not looking like AFC would get back in the game, they decided to up the pace and put some pressure on. Hall pulled a goal back with 7 minutes remaining and some last gasp defending by the visitors saw them deservedly take the 3 points back to Middlesex.
