With the majority of Butler and Van Druske's cavalry routing, (this is a local amendment to Pike and Shotte, we felt that the immediate removal of a unit which failed a break test was too severe), the Parliamentary infantry in the centre were now threatened in the flank. Middleton had managed to get one unit forward and this had fired one devastating volley into one of Astley's regiments. However, any further advance was out of the question with Wilmot's troopers hovering, ready to pounce. The colonel ordered his unit to form 'hedgehog' and hoped that other units would come to his aid. Unfortunately, the remaining regiments were struggling to deploy as space was limited by the exit from the bridge. Thus the unit in hedgehog had to endure a nagging fire from two enemy units, which slowly, but surely pushed it towards breaking point.
