STRATFORD Town manager Carl Adams was left bitterly disappointed after a late penalty gave league leaders Chippenham Town the points in a 1-0 win at the DCS on Saturday.

Town gave as good as they got against the title pacesetters but Andy Sandell fired home the winner on 84 minutes after defender Liam Francis brought down David Pratt.

“We matched the team that’s top of the League for most of the game, and we didn’t deserve to end up with nothing,” said Adams.

“Maybe the only difference between the two sides was in decision making, but we’ve proved that we can compete against the best in this League. In fact we seem to perform better against the big teams and this was another example of exactly that.”

Town will look to bounce back on Saturday when they entertain Biggleswade Town.
