There was precious little to shout about as Saints slid to another defeat on Saturday as the distance since their last win climbed to thirteen games.

Against a Bedford side just a place and a single point above them, this was an opportunity for Chalfont to display the mental toughness that Danny Edwards has called for in recent days. As it was, just about the only positive to be taken was the performance of Alex Paine who was once again pressed into service in the heart of the defence due to a shortage of players. Such was his dominance in a disappointing game even the home supporters were left purring at such a powerful display.

Paxton's return boosts Saints

Saints may still be some way away from a return to winning form but the welcome presence of Gareth Paxton back in the heart of the defence saw Saints put in a solid 90 minute performance on Saturday. It wasn't enough to secure any points but it was a huge step up from previous games.

Chalfont have lacked a consistent goal scorer for the past three seasons and so have had to rely on a solid defence, clean sheets and a minimum of errors to secure their success. All three have been lacking in recent weeks and so the return of Paxton, together with the early promise of a not yet fit Tony Mendy are the beacons of hope that Saints supporters will cling to.

IMG 4820ARSaints were undone on Saturday by a Barton side that is still pushing hard for the play-off spot that seemed to be within Chalfont's grasp at the turn of the New Year. The bright flame of hope may now be just flickering at Mill Meadow as Saints have fallen a dozen places in the table since then but their first half display shows that there is still a lot of good football being played.

The continuing shortage of fit or available defenders saw the ever-willing Alex Paine having to play alongside Adam Pepera at the back and his task was made even harder as Barton unveiled their new striker, league top scorer Lewis Putman.

Penalty fury sinks Saints

IMG 4521ARWhen you are in a run of bad form, as Chalfont are as their winless streak now reaches double figures, it is normal to feel that everything is against you. Such was the case on Saturday. Having just about survived a dreadful first half when they were lucky not to concede more than two goals, they roared back to soon level the scores in the second. Still under pressure but holding their own they were then floored by a soft penalty award and some guesswork officiating by the referee that resulted in Alan Hedley being sent off.

IMG 4363ARWith manager Danny Edwards away enjoying the birth of his first son, Saints travelled to Rugby and nearly gave him a double celebration as they pushed the promotion hopefuls all the way. It was a buoyant performance but ultimately it wasn't enough to halt their recent slide into the lower half of the table.

If Rugby had been fortunate to escape with a draw when the sides last met, the tables were now turned and it was Saints who were the underdogs. On the wide, open spaces of the impressive Rugby ground, Saints began strongly, playing some neat football and, indeed, had by far the better of the opening exchanges. Aaron Lansiquot had an early shot blocked and Glenn Yala and Terrell Lewis caused several problems. So it was against the run of play when the Saints defence failed to deal with a Lake-Gaskin pass and Richard Gregory neatly tucked away his shot to put the home side ahead just before the break.
