Huntingdon Town 1 Daventry Town 1
HUNTINGDON Town kept up their incredible scoring run but couldn't claim all three points against mid-table rivals Daventry in a gale at Jubilee Park.
Huntingdon manager Paul Swannell admitted the gusty conditions had largely spoilt the game but praised his players for trying to play good football.
Dave Beanie made some good saves in the home goal as Daventry used the wind but the visitors took the lead through Adam Confue nine minutes before the interval.
Huntingdon levelled the scores on 58 minutes when Peterborough United loanee Alan Haine scored with a smart finish.

Despite having the advantage of the wind Huntingdon struggled to create many clear-cut openings and a point was probably a fair result.
Swannell said: "We didn't provide enough decent service to our front men and although we dominated the second half, we didn't create enough chances."
