IMG 0464ARIf Saints are to maintain their challenge at the top of the table this season, it is important to get good results against solid, well-organised sides like Northwood. So Saturday's win was a huge feather in the cap for Danny and his side and the tactics employed to negate the threats posed by the home side.

A single goal early in the second half was enough to separate the two sides on a chilly afternoon. Both sides lined up to neutralise the perceived main threat posed by the other. Lewis Ochoa and Remmel Clarke, both playing in unusual positions for them, both excelled in the full back role minimising the Northwood flank players and denying service to top scorer Michael Murray. In reply, Burgess and Kenny had to double-team Tony Mendy to keep the Division's top scorer off the score sheet.

The two defences dominated play and so chances were few and far between. Saints certainly felt they IMG 0426ARdidn't get the rub of the green with some of the refereeing decisions in the first half as Tony Mendy repeatedly challenged the home defence with his fast breaking runs. Charlie Kennedy was strong in the air and Mark Burgess resolute on the ground for Northwood. 

Saints looked confident throughout the side and despite some nervous moments, the defence, marshalled excellently as always by Ryan Wharton never looked seriously under threat. Alan Hedley and Alex Paine have finally found a system that brings out the best in both of them in midfield and Aaron Lansiquot was enjoying one of his more threatening performances.

IMG 0446ARThe second half promised more of the sparring, interrupted only by some increasingly pedantic officiating, but a moment of magic from Aaron Lansiquot finally broke the deadlock. Breaking into the box past several players, he lifted the ball into the path of Craige Tomkins and his crisp finish gave Laurencin no chance in the Northwood goal. 

As the game went on, neither side looked likely to trouble their opponents defence and despite several changes late on the die was set and the clock ran out on another satisfying win for a Chalfont side that is starting to look like the real deal.
