Southern League Premier Division: Redditch United 0 Dunstable Town 0

Dunstable Town held Southern League Premier Division title-chasers Redditch United to a goalless draw on Monday night.

The visitors produced a battling display throughout, as keeper Bart Pedrycz was again outstanding.

Blues didn’t set out just to play for a point though as Lee Roache and Gary Wharton came close in the first half, while defenders James Kaloczi and Adam Pepera were on hand to make some important clearances too.

Pedrycz made a good save from Ashley Sammons, as United midfielder Sam Merson’s long throws caused trouble, with Robert Thompson-Brown’s effort shaving the bar.

Wharton fired wide and Danny Talbot’s effort deflected behind as home keeper Jose Veiga saved well from Wharton.

In the second half, the pressure mounted on Dunstable, but they defended resolutely, with new signing Mark Smith coming off the bench and Wharton was close to a winner too, shooting narrowly wide.

The Blues are back in action on Thursday night, visiting Kettering Town, before finishing a busy week at home to Cirencester this weekend.

Dunstable: Bart Pedrycz, Howard Hall, Gedeon Okito, Danny Talbot (Mark Smith), James Kaloczi, Adam Pepera, David Longe-King, Gary Wharton, Lee Roache, David Keenleyside, Chris Vardy.

Subs not used: Tony Fontenelle, Jamie Head.
