A SCOTT Carter goal just three minutes from time handed Soham a crucial 3-2 win against Biggleswade Town on Tuesday.

The game looked destined for a draw heading into the last five minutes only for Carter to upset the odds with a delightful finish that secured a first win in three for the Greens.

Ian Benjamin's side move up to 16th place with the win ahead of their trip to Slough Town on Saturday.

Mid-table Biggleswade were quickest out of the traps against a startled Greens' side with the returning Jamie Chamberlain pressed into action on several occasions as the visitors threatened.

After weathering the storm, the Greens kicked on and moved into a 2-0 lead inside the opening half-hour as both Charles Libam and Dubi Ogbonna netted.

Benjamin's side suffered a set-back just three minutes into the second-half as Glen Lamacraft broke away to net for the visitors. Just 10 minutes later, Biggleswade restored parity courtesy of a fine strike by Brett Donnelly.
