Cheshunt v Egham Town Match Report
The Ambers kept up their playoff push with a convincing 3-0 win over the divisions bottom club, Egham Town, Mark Hughes opened the scoring before a brace from Brian Moses rounded off a good afternoon work at a blustery Theobalds Lane.
Edwards handed debuts to George Ademuluyi, with Emiel Aiken dropping to the bench, and Shane Cojacarel, in place of the suspended Jason Hallett
The hosts got the game underway on a bitterly cold and blustery afternoon and had the better of the opening exchanges, both Cojocarel and Taylor McKenzie went close within the first ten minutes, the former forcing Egham keeper Ryan Sandsford into a good save, with the latter glancing wide from a trademark Jordan Westcott delivery. Egham were a threat going forward however, and Brandon McCarthy was their main dangerman, with his strike being excellently palmed away by Harry Girling in the Cheshunt goal.
The Ambers then had a penalty appeal waved away as McKenzie was pulled over from a Westcott corner, with Connor Hogan sending a curled effort just over the crossbar moments later. Brian Moses was next to try his luck, bursting through but his effort from the angle was well kept out by Sandsford. Egham were quick to counter once again, and McCarthy was found for the visitors on the edge of the box but was unable to get his effort on target. The final chance of the half went to the hosts, with Cojocaret’s cross just evading the onrushing Connor Hogan at the back post. Both sides entered the half time break wondering what they could do to break the deadlock.
HT – Cheshunt 0-0 Egham Town
The visitors got the second half underway, but it was again the Ambers who had the first chance almost instantly after the restart, Shane Cojocarel being fed through, but Sandsford saved brilliantly down to his right to deny Cheshunt’s No 10 a debut goal. As the wind picked up and the clock ticked on, a free kick was given to the hosts over on the right side, Jordan Westcott floated in another great ball, and it was bobbling around, it eventually fell to Mark Hughes, who smashed the ball low into the corner of the post to put the Ambers 1-0 up, and to send relief all around ‘The Lane’. 1-0 61 mins.
Just 6 minutes later, things got even better for the hosts, as Brian Moses was sent through, and finished calmly past Sandsford for his first league goal since joining the club, and to put some breathing space between the two sides. 2-0 67 mins. It was then Egham’s turn to venture forward, with Tristian Toney shooting well wide on the turn, the third goal of the game would come soon after, as an intricate Joe Re flick sent Brian Moses through, who emphatically volleyed past Sandsford for his second, and Cheshunt’s third of the afternoon. 3-0 75 mins.
The striker almost had his hat trick immediately afterwards, but Sandsford was down well to save again. Connor Hogan then had the final chance of the 90, but his curling effort was well held by Sandsford.
