ONCE again Bethnal Green United failed to take advantage of league leaders Burnham Ramblers dropping points, after the East End club could only draw with London APSA, writes MATT DINER.

Ramblers lost 2-1 at home to Stansted while at the Terence McMillan Stadium Alfred Kamara cancelled out an earlier strike from APSA defender Burgess.

"A draw, a fair result? Was it heck," declared Greens boss Justin Gardner.

"They (APSA) defended for their lives and when the final whistle blew they were over the moon."

The dropped points from United were made worse when they felt they had won the game with 10 minutes left, only for the linesman to raise his flag for offside.

"There were 10 minutes left and Anton Stephenson scored a great goal. The referee pointed back to the centre circle and we all celebrated and I don't know why but the assistant put his flag up," Gardner moaned.

"It was really confusing and especially for that to happen with 10 minutes left was upsetting.

"It was a frustrating afternoon and we should have won the game," Gardner said.

"We rely too much on Anton to grab us the goals and the players agreed with me on that after the game.

"We will have Marlon Campbell back though for the home game against Witham and that will be a huge boost for us.
