The Magpies weren't helped by the loss of Adi Milton to injury 10 minutes later but a lot of huffing and puffing from both sides brought no change in the score by half-time.

Debutant Emily Frost tested the Bedford Keeper twice in the early stages and Colney did look more threatening with more possession but it was Bedford who got the only goal of the half from a free-kick.

Catalina Costas produced a player of the match effort and Butler had to tip another shot over the bar but the wounded squad will need to regroup ahead of their next outing.
