Isthmian League Premier Division Wed 28 February Imperial Fields
  • Dsane (80')
  • Nwachuku (39')

Cheshunt travel back down to South London on Wednesday to face Kingstonian at Imperial Fields, the home of Tooting & Mitcham. This is a huge game for both sides at the bottom of the table, Ambers fans will be hoping they can complete the league double over the K’s to push them up the table.

The Hosts – Kingstonian

 Kingstonian come into this game rock bottom of the Isthmian Premier League table with just 17 points from 29 matches so far this campaign. They are in a very poor run of form with just one victory in their previous 18 fixtures in all competitions. This win came just a couple of weeks ago when they defeated an in-form Bognor Regis Town at home.

The K’s most recent fixture ended in a 1-0 defeat to Cray Wanderers at Hayes Lane. A free kick from Cray’s Anthony Cook gave the Wands the lead on the hour mark. Kingstonian were unable to fight back, and Cray held out for the three points.

The club was delighted to announce Mthuthuzeli ‘Tutu’ Henriques as the club’s permanent manager at the weekend. The Zimbabwean had been the interim manager since former manager Simon Lane resigned from his post earlier in the month.

It has been Kingstonian’s defence that has let them down in the league this season, conceding 60 goals, the most in the league. The K’s do statistically have the best attack of those teams in the thick of the relegation battle. They have scored 40 goals, two more than Cheshunt. The goals tally has been boosted massively by the form of Eddie Dsane; he has bagged 16 goals in 37 appearances this season. He returned to the club from Horsham this summer after spending part of the 2019-20 season at the club. Andy Somo has impressed scoring 10 goals in 29 appearances, but he left the club a few weeks ago.

 The Visitors – Cheshunt

The Ambers come into this game off the back of yet another defeat at the hands of Dulwich Hamlet and Champion Hill. Cheshunt were right in the game at the start of the match, but the floodgates opened once Danny Mills put the hosts ahead just seconds after Nwachuku almost put Cheshunt ahead. The Hamlet made scored two more in added time in the first half which really dented Craig Edwards’ side.

Despite this, the Ambers came out fighting in the second half, creating plenty of chances. The return of Nathaniel Orafu really helped with this as he was pulling the strings in the midfield. Despite this improvement it wasn’t enough to earn them any points in London.

Craig Edwards was boosted by the massive return of Nnamdi Nwachuku on Saturday. Ambers fans will be hoping he is fit enough to start again on Wednesday as he has arguably been the teams most important player this campaign. Jamie Reynolds will serve the last game of his suspension after seeing red in the draw with Bognor Regis. There will also be some last fitness checks ahead of the match.

Head-to-Head – Kingstonian vs Cheshunt

 The Ambers have played the K’s a total of six times in recent times with the Hertfordshire side coming out way on top. They are unbeaten against Kingstonian with five wins and one draw. It is a very high goalscoring fixture with 27 goals in the six matches with Cheshunt scoring 17 of those goals.

The most recent fixture earlier in the season was an Isthmian Premier classic, it finished 5-4 to the Ambers at Theobalds Lane. Two goals from Nathaniel Orafu and Andre Godfrinne as well as a tidy finish from Vas Vasiliou earned the home side all three points.
