Chesham Utd secured their second win in five days, but at some cost.
Having already lost Toby Little through injury in the FA Cup replay win over Sevenoaks, man of the match full back Brett Longden was stretchered off late in this 3-0 win over Cirencester. To compound those losses Stephan Hamilton-Forbes was shown a straight red card for a two footed tackle in the middle of the field with the game already comfortably won and only moments from finishing, and will now serve a suspension.
Hamilton-Forbes had earlier been instrumental in the opening goal, with a shot that deflected off a Cirencester defender beyond the reach of the visting 'keeper. Barry Hayles then struck either side of half time to complete a comfortable win for The Generals, who will now have to marshall their resources ahead of a week which sees an important home league match v Cambridge City on Tuesday evening followed by the visit of Ryman Premier League side Staines Town on Saturday in the FA Cup 3RQ

Manager Andy Leese commented
"A decent win on Saturday was what we needed , but it came at a cost with injuries and a red card for Stephan. We will have to deal with those.
"The squad is versatile and we have some young lads in the reserve set up that can step up and take the opportunity"
