Cheshunt travel south of the river to face Dulwich Hamlet at Champion Hill this Saturday afternoon. The Ambers will be looking to bounce back after a poor run of form and earn their first away league win since victory at Carshalton Athletic in December.

The Hosts- Dulwich Hamlet

Like Cheshunt, the Hamlet were relegated from the National League South last season. They were only relegated by just two goal difference. Dover Athletic also finished the campaign on 48 points but they just edged it.

It has been a very solid opening to the Isthmian Premier Division campaign for Dulwich this season. They currently sit in 10th place, just five points off the play off places. With twelve games left of the season, Hamlet fans will not be ruling out promotion back to the National League South just yet.

The South East London outfit come into this match after a win over Concord Rangers at The Aspect Arena. An own goal and a goal from Ademola Shokunbi earned them all three points in Essex. They have lost just one of their previous nine league matches, this came against runaway league leaders Hornchurch, two late goals for the Urchins took away the points from Dulwich.

The Hamlet’s most impressive player this season has been Luke Wanadio. The former Aldershot and Bromley striker has bagged 17 goals in 35 appearances.. A huge 11 goals more than the next highest goal scorers with Michael Chambers, Ryley Scott and back up striker Danny Mills all on six for the campaign.

The Visitors – Cheshunt

The Ambers come into this fixture disheartened after being dumped out of the Herts FA Senior cup on Tuesday night. This came at a poor time for Cheshunt who have also been on a poor run in the league. They recently slipped into the relegation zone after Margate picked up their first win since November last weekend.

However, it isn’t all bad for Cheshunt. Alfie Pendlebury scored his first two goals for the club in just his second match on Tuesday night. His scramble in from a corner and a tidy finish gave Cheshunt the lead at Theobalds Lane, but they were unable to hold out to advance into the semi-finals.

Wide midfielder Jamie Reynolds is still suspended after seeing red at the MKM Arena against Bognor Regis the weekend previous. Reynolds will be missed as he started and set up a goal for Pendlebury in the cup defeat on Tuesday. Manager Craig Edwards is likely to make changes to accommodate his suspension & additional injuries, so there may be a few surprises for Dulwich to contend with at kick off.

Head-to-Head –Dulwich Hamlet vs Cheshunt 

 These two sides have faced each other a total of five times in recent times. The Hamlet come out on top winning four with the Ambers winning just one. They have faced each other twice this season in both the FA Trophy and in the League.

Cheshunt came out on top in the league meeting. The Ambers took the lead just a minute in as Nnamdi Nwachuku fired home after a pass from Isiah Noel-Williams, Nnamdi turned provider in the second half as he headed a ball into the path of Theo Alexandrou who slotted the ball home. A late Wanadio penalty gave Dulwich some hope, but it finished 2-1 at Theobalds Lane.

Dulwich would go on to get revenge exactly a week later as former Cheshunt player Ayuk Tarh scored the only goal to knock the Ambers out of the FA trophy. Former Amber Josh Shonibare will also be facing his former side again on Saturday.
