Waitrose Man of the Match in association with the Bucks Examiner: Scott Thomas

Chesham’s run of ten consecutive wins came to an end, but a draw was no bad result against improving Truro. At the end the home side paid Chesham a compliment by celebrating as if they had won, but a draw was a fair result although Chesham had cause to question a couple of major decisions that went against them.

James Potton was fit again and returned in place of Toby Little in the only change to the side. Chesham travelled with only four substitutes after Mark Lambert opted to play for the reserves. Truro had an early chance when Chesham lost the ball inside their own half and Liam Eddy shot across goal. Chesham had the majority of possession in the first half although the home side occasionally looked dangerous on the break. After ten minutes a Steve Wales corner hit a defender and could have gone anywhere, but bounced into the arms of home keeper Ollie Chenoweth. Drew Roberts crossed to Danny Gordon at the far post who headed over, then Chris Dillon lobbed Chenoweth and the ball went wide as Drew Roberts slid in. Dillon then set up Drew Roberts who shot wide of the far post, then at the other end Les Afful’s cross was headed goalwards by Eddy but Shane Gore stretched to tip the ball away. Five minutes from half-time Bruce Wilson took a free kick on the right and the linesman put his flag up for offside against Danny Gordon at the far post, although the ball never reached Gordon as James Potton headed into the net. Potton looked to be onside in which case the goal should have stood, but it was ruled out.

In the opening minute of the second half Drew Roberts found space down the right and shot across goal. The home side then had their best spell of the game, and on the hour Paul Kendall got his head to Jamie Lowry’s corner but the ball was scrambled away. Chesham caught the home side on the break with their goal on 70 minutes, James Potton clearing from his own area to Steve Wales who ran for goal before slipping the ball out to Chris Dillon who lobbed over the advancing keeper. However five minutes later another Lowry corner was headed home by Paul Kendall for the equaliser. Chesham looked the more likely winners late on, Chris Dillon forcing Chenoweth to dive and turn away a shot on the turn, then Bruce Wilson sent Dillon clear but the linesman flagged for an offside which looked extremely dubious. In the last minute of normal time Inih Effiong crossed from the right but Chris Dillon could not direct his header on target.
