Maldon and Tiptree miss a hatful of chances but still take 3 points

A fine performance by the Jammers produces some great quick passing moves with the only downside their failure to score more than 3 goals

Cheshunt FC v Maldon and Tiptree FC Bostik league One North Tuesday 13 February

Jammers boss Kevin Horlock made 3 changes to his starting eleven from the last game against Grays with George Brown, Chris Millar (pictured) and Rhys Henry coming in for Johnville Renee, Olu Quandri and Kieran Bailey who all took their places on a strong substitutes bench.

The home side featured first with Jeramie Agholor's long cross finding Jason Hallett but he had to stretch for the ball so visiting keeper Chris Haigh was able to push the ball aside for a corner, from which Lheureux Menga headed over. From an attacking point of view this was about as good as it got for Cheshunt in the first half as the visitors took a firm grip on the game with some slick interplay and passing and very quick movement especially down the flanks from Ryan Clampin and George Brown. Maldon and Tiptree took the lead after just 4 minutes when a long ball down the wing saw Clampin close in on goal but home keeper Amadou Tangara pulled off the first of a number of good saves to beat out the ball round the post for a corner then from this the ball was cleared out to James Shepherd and from 10 metres inside the touchline he launched a cross cum shot that caught Tangara slightly out of position as the ball sailed over his head and into the top corner of the net. Having complete domination in midfield the Jammers eagerly set about adding to their tally but a good move saw Chris Millar feed Max Porter to get a shot away from 20 metres but Tangara made a good save then a very quick break saw Clampin again get away down the left but his fine cross was just misjudged by Oluwole Akinsanya who was only able to get the slightest touch to put the chance wide. Rhys Henry was the next to be denied by Tangara when the keeper just saved his fierce 25 metre drive before Clampin just missed from a good chance but his effort was too close to Tangara who just put the ball round the post at the expense of a corner from which Gradi Milende put his header just over. It had been almost one way traffic towards the home goal but on 27 minutes the home side received a big slice of good fortune when from an isolated attack Agholor put in a dangerous low cross from the left which visiting defender Joe Ellul unluckily turned into his own net as he went to clear. Undeterred by this Maldon and Tiptree continued to push forward but their porr finishing continued with Henry's fine run ending with him laying the ball off to Clampin who again put his effort to close to Tangara enabling him to beat the ball away then Clampin turned provider to give Henry a clear run on goal but his close range shot went wide. The Jammers George Brown then went on a fine run down the right before getting the ball over to Akinsanya but again his effort went wide before Henry and Clampin both hit reasonable chances wide. The Jammers did take the lead again after 39 minutes with a goal which owed much to Akinsanya's tireless running when Joe Claridge's long pass forward split the home defence to leave Akinsanya to muscle his way past a defender then round advancing keeper Tangara before firing into an open net. Maldon and Tiptree's failure to hit the net continued up to half time with Brown and Millar creating a clear chance for Clampin but he hit wide then Henry's 20 metre shot flew wide.

Fears that Maldon and Tiptree's failure to score more than two first half goals were largely dispelled as, although the home side enjoyed a bit more possession, they rarely seriously threatened the visitors goal even though Menga had an early 20 metre strong low shot held by Haigh who was quick to pounce on the rebound. The Jammers Clampin was again in the thick of goal scoring chances and he got on the end of another good move forward but saw his effort blocked by Tangara's legs before substitute Johnville Renee's shot from the rebound was also blocked by the keepers legs. Clampin's persistence was rewarded after 65 minutes when he took advantage of the space given too him to run onto a forward ball before going clear to fire into the net with a low 20 metre shot. The Jammers then spurned two really good opportunities to put the game to bed but after Henry's 20 metre shot had only been half cleared the ball was returned to the far post where Akinsanya put his header wide from almost on the goal line before, from almost an identical position, Kieran Bailey's cross found Clampin but he put his shot wide when it looked almost impossible not to score. After 83 minutes the thoughts that Maldon and Tiptree, by not taking their goal scoring chances, would risk dropping points almost became reality when the home side narrowed the gap thanks to two substitutes when Emiel Aiken's good run down the right ended with a low cross into the visitors goal area for Kyle Roberts to convert from close range. The visitors managed to hold out to the final whistle with just one scare when a long free kick into their penalty area was just poked over although the Jammers passed up on another couple of clear goal scoring chance in added time when Akinsanya played Henry through to go 1 on 1 with Tangara and the keeper managed to push the midfielders shot away but only to Renee who saw his follow up effort saved.
