Dunstable enjoyed a narrow win over a Chesham side missing a few players because of exam revision.

The game started slowly, but the visitors had the first chance on nineteen minutes when Josh Thompson turned a shot from the edge of the box round the post. The game started to improve and Chesham had a shot deflected wide. On 28 minutes Dunstable took the lead when Josh Thompson parried a shot but the loose ball fell to an opposing player who tapped in. Six minutes later Will Orchard ran through the opposing defence and shot past the keeper but just past the post. Dunstable put on some more pressure but Chesham equalised when Josh Burks just got to the ball ahead of the keeper and tapped in. As half-time approached Jed de Souza had a free header from a corner but could not direct the ball on target.

On the hour mark the Dunstable keeper picked up a back-pass to concede a free kick but Tom Cocker’s effort was blocked by the defensive wall. After 77 minutes Dunstable scored the winner with a header from a corner. Shortly afterwards Luke Asquith was forced off with injury after Chesham had used all their substitutes, but it became 10v10 when Dunstable then had a player sent off for lashing out at Josh Burks after the ball had gone out for a throw. Late in the game Hadleigh Devall broke clear but the keeper saved, then in stoppage time Will Orchard pulled the ball back from the by-line to Jed de Souza who missed his kick from close range. Late in the game the visitors broke away but Josh Thompson saved the resulting shot.
