ROBINS GRAB THE POINTS AT THE LANE
The Robins held on for a valuable three points after Omar Komara’s 41st minute strike proved enough to see off Cheshunt in a match of low quality and few chances. This result leaves Carshalton in 9th place, while the hosts are left languishing in the relegation zone after todays defeat.
Roman Campbell came in for his first start for the suspended Joe Re, while Bobby Mills, Joel Nakani-Brown and Mark Hughes made way for Sammy Collins, Zack Newton and Ibrahim Diallo, with the new signing, Bengt Eriksson on the bench for the first time since joining from IFK Ostersunds.
The opening 20/25 minutes of the match was a classic ‘midfield battle’ with both sides thoroughly cancelling each other out and barely allowing any chances. Ryan Campbell had the Ambers first chance, striking at the heart of the visitors defence but his low effort lacked conviction and it rolled into the arms of Carshalton ‘keeper Kleton Perntreou. Sammy Collins was always a threat for the Ambers too and his free kick nearly caught out Perntreou, but he grabbed it at the second attempt.
Lennart Hein was pulling the strings for the visitors, and he dug out a deep cross which was held by Girling comfortably. With just four minutes remaining till half time however, Carshalton struck, they worked the ball well up-field and Omar Koroma was on hand to smash the ball home with his left foot to put the visitors infront, with the final chance of the half. (0-1 41 mins).
HT – Cheshunt 0-1 Carshalton Athletic
The second half got underway in very similar conditions to the first with the game being really played in the midfield. The visitors had a massive chance to double the lead 15 minutes after the break, Christie Pattison broke through and rounded Girling and looked all set to put the ball home, but the keeper got a fantastic touch to it to deny the visitors a second, and Pattison was at the centre of things again, striking an effort just wide.
Ambrose Gnahore and Darius Ghinea both came on to try and turn the game in ‘The Ambers’ favour, with the former almost sneaking a cross past Perntreou, Gnahore then had the best chance of the game for Cheshunt, he was found excellently by Ryan Moss but his volley was excellently kept out.
Carshalton were pushing for a second in the final ten minutes, with Ricky Korboa smashing an effort off a Cheshunt body and it almost snuck in past Girling, this was the last chance however as Cheshunt slipped to a 7th league defeat in a row and ‘The Robbins’ held on.
