North Greenford United  1     Stephenson 60

Calor League Division One Central  (Tuesday 11 February)

There was a huge sigh of relief at the end of Tuesday's game as Saints finally secured their first win since Boxing Day.

With North Greenford looking to impress under their new manager and on a night when most other games failed to beat the weather, it was heavy going for Saints in the early stages. Chances were spurned as they looked to control the game and the breakthrough came after 32 minutes when Terrell Lewis broke free down the right and sent in a perfect cross for Scott Fitzgerald to head home unmarked at the far post to end his own personal goal drought. 

Having created enough chances to put the result beyond doubt in the first half, Saints were brought down to earth on the hour when missed assignments at a free kick allowed Myles Stephenson a free header to level the scores. 

Some sensible substitutions by Danny Edwards to pep up the misfiring front line put Saints back in the driving seat in the latter stages and it was one of those substitutes, Romaine Walker, who fired in an excellent shot after 83 minutes to secure the win to keep going Saints' slow climb up the table.

Saints:  Michael Power-Simpson, Remmel Clarke, Ronayne Marsh-Brown, Gareth Paxton, Liam Fowler, Alex Paine, Terrell Lewis (Farai Hallam 74), Alan Hedley, Leon Osei (Romaine Walker 74), Scott Fitzgerald, Danilson Vicente (Asen Valchev 62).

Leighton Town  1     Gallant 89pen

Saints  1     Vicente 44

Calor League Division One Central  (Saturday 1 February)

Outstanding work by the Leighton groundstaff to get the game played was nearly undone by the visitors who went into the final minutes looking as though the points would be returning to Mill Meadow.

Despite the windy conditions, Saints had taken the lead just before the half-time break through Danilson Vicente who celebrated his first goal for the club. Up until the final minute it look sufficient to claim the win but the draw-specialist home side were awarded two penalties in the late stages to give themselves a chance to snatch the win. Michael Power-Simpson saved the first but Ben Gallant made no mistake with the second to secure the draw, Leighton's tenth of the season.

Without standout players Gareth Paxton and Scott Fitzgerald, Saints welcomed back Liam Fowler to the heart of the defence and will be hoping that Danilson Vicente's season can now kick-on with his first goal safely secured.  

Saints:  Michael Power-Simpson, Remmel Clarke (Romaine Walker 69), Ronayne Marsh-Brown, Liam Fowler, Anthony Lennon, Alex Paine, Davis Haule, Alan Hedley, Leon Osei, Terrell Lewis, Danilson Vicente.

Royston Town  1     Murray 62

Calor League Division One Central  (Saturday 25 January)

A torrential downpour in the second half proved to be the twelfth man for visiting Royston as they took advantage of hesitation in the Saints defence caused by the driving rain and swirling wind to grab a breakaway goal that was ultimately to decide the outcome of the game and send the points back to Hertfordshire.

Seeking to recover from their mauling at Slough the week before, Saints began the game brightly against their higher placed opponents. Smart running and passing repeatedly opened the visiting defence with an early chance falling to the tireless Alex Paine. The usually reliable Scott Fitzgerald slid his shot wide when put clear and Danilson Vicente must have thought he had finally scored his first goal for Saints only to be denied by a brilliant one-hand stop by the keeper. At the other end, Michael Power-Simpson made a great stop of his own before Vicente was denied a second time by the keeper. Against a side pushing hard for the play-offs, Saints needed to be more ruthless in front of goal and Fitzgerald had another golden chance to opening the scoring when put clear with just the keeper to beat but he again shot wide to keep the Saints top scorer goalless since November.

The warning signs for Saints were not slow in appearing after the break. An early shot through a forest of players hit the post and Murray, having rounded Power-Simpson saw his shot blocked. By now the weather was starting to exert its influence. With an intensity that saw the game at nearby Uxbridge abandoned, the Chalfont pitch held up brilliantly but Royston had the conditions at their backs and the decisive moment came after 62 minutes when a speculative long ball caused indecision in the Saints defence and Antonio Murray seized on the opportunity to put the visitors ahead.

Saints were unable to regain the initiative and as their passing began to suffer, so Royston moved the ball around with a greater confidence. A big concern for Chalfont was the sight of Alan Hedley hobbling off after an awkward fall. They still had a final chance to level the score right at the end when Romaine Walker broke clear to confront the keeper but instead of shooting, took an extra touch and was immediately smothered. 

Saints:  Michael Power-Simpson, Remmel Clarke, Ronayne Marsh-Brown, Gareth Paxton, Anthony Lennon, Alex Paine, Danilson Vicente (Tayo Coker 86), Alan Hedley (Davis Haule 80), Leon Osei, Scott Fitzgerald, Asen Valchev (Romaine Walker 69). 

Attendance:  71     Star Player:  Alex Paine
