BEDFONT Town have drawn a line under their row with Hayes & Yeading and insist there is no problem between the clubs.
The two have enjoyed close relations since Town, then Bedfont Green, ground-shared at Yeading before they merged with Hayes.
But tempers boiled over in last week's County Cup semi-final, which Hayes & Yeading won 1-0, after which their manager, Garry Haylock, branded Bedfont a bunch of bruisers.
However, despite complaining to the County FA, Bedfont want to put the incident behind them and con- centrate on their push for the Zamaretto One Central play-offs.
Chairman Doug White said: "I thought we competed with them very fairly and very honestly.
"We enjoy a very special relation- ship with Hayes & Yeading. You have to remember that we ground- shared with them for two years and we've invited them over at the beginning of the season to have a friendly here.
"Obviously I'm disappointed with their manager's comments. We understand that the FA have been made aware of it and it's up to them what they do about it."
Club secretary Stewart Cook added: "We don't want to get into a slagging match with Garry. The comments are completely untrue and I don't think they warrant a response.
"We were so proud of our players, the way we played and the way we conducted ourselves against a side who were 54 places above us in the pyramid.
"If anybody wants to take issue with it, they can, but we have got nothing against Hayes & Yeading."
Meanwhile, Bedfont assistant boss Fergus Moore has set his sights on a play-off place following Saturday's 3-2 win over Bedworth.
Stand-in manager Jon-Barrie Bates set the Peacocks on their way with a stunning free kick and a powerful header, before Ryan Lake made it 3-0 on the hour mark.
But Lake went from hero to villain moments later when his handball allowed Bedworth to pull one back from the spot, and the visitors ensured a nervy finish when they grabbed another with five minutes left.
Moore said: "We are still aiming to finish in the play-off places.
"We have a set of mini cup finals now, as we've still got to play six of the top eight."
Meanwhile, goals from Reis Stanislaus and Wayne O'Sullivan either side of the break earned Bedfont a 2-1 win over play-off- chasing rivals Biggleswade Town on Wednesday night.
Although the visitors pulled a goal back late on, Bedfont held on to go ninth in the table, just two places off a play-off place, ahead of tomorrow's (Saturday) match at Leighton Town.
