St Albans City’s undefeated run under caretaker manager Harry Wheeler came to an end at Bishop’s Stortford.

Recent signing, Ed Oshodi, cancelled out a Kieron Bywater effort, which crept in past Joe Welch on 54 minutes.

Oshodi, who started at right back after Ben Nunn was recalled from his loan deal by parent club Boreham Wood, emerged through a clutch of players to nod home a James Comley corner.

But an Anthony Church header 13 minutes from time gave Stortford the spoils and ended the promising start to Wheeler’s reign.

The caretaker will hope for a reaction when Saints take on Chelmsford City tomorrow (Monday) at Clarence Park.
