BOSS Dean Holdsworth is looking for Stratford Town to kick on from their opening day draw with Bedford Town.
The Bards grabbed the lead against the run of play in the 26th minute when Josh Hawker made the most of a loose ball to charge through on goal and slot past Eagles goalkeeper Alexander Street.
As the second half wore on it seemed as though Stratford were on course to claim all three points, especially when Liam O’Brien pulled off a superb stop late on to prevent the recently-introduced Will Summerfield from slamming home from point-blank range.
