It was a frustrating day at the office for Bideford, drawing 0-0 with AFC Totton in the Evo-Stik Southern League Division One South and West

Bideford were left scratching their heads this evening (Saturday) after they were held to a 0-0 draw against visiting AFC Totton.

The Robins dominated for much of a waterlogged Evo-Stik Southern League fixture, but despite a host of chances, were unable to put the ball in the back of the net.

The draw leaves Bideford ninth in Division One South and West after picking up just two points from their last four games.

The home side started brightly, with Kevin Squire forcing a save from Totton goalkeeper Charlie Searle within three minutes of kick off.

Chance after chance followed for the Robins, through Dan Harrison, Matt Andrew and Sean Downing, but none of them were able to get the crucial goal.

The Robins played the conditions well. Billy Tucker and Will Richards combined well on the left flank, providing a good outlet for the Robins to create chances, while Andrew looked a threat when combining with Squire.

Bideford upped the pressure in the second half, with Downing often involved.

He had a looping header saved by Searle before providing for Squire minutes later, who could only drag wide.

After the hour mark the game started to open up, with Totton coming close to breaking the deadlock.

Josh Colwill produced an outstanding reaction save to stop Michael Gosney's deflected effort from going in, while James Richards cleared a header off the line.

Bideford continued to create chances, Andrew uncharacteristically fired wide from inside the box minutes before Tucker had a volley saved by Searle - who was undoubtedly man of the match.
