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.

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.

IMG 4006ARStarting a run of four games against sides in the top six, Saints got off to the worst possible start with a performance that, at times, hinted that if the wheels weren't yet coming off then they were certainly wobbling on the Saints wagon.

Shorn of several key starters, Danny Edwards was forced to rearrange his defence and midfield. Saints made much of the early running and with Aaron Lansiquot sending a header wide and Glenn Yala spurning the best chance of the half by scuffing a shot badly off target, they had the opportunity to have the lead by the interval.

Evo-Stik League Southern Division One Central  (Saturday 14 February)

Since their promotion to the Southern League Chalfont had not played out a goalless draw at Mill Meadow in 78 games. Saturday's draw against neighbours Northwood brought that record to an end but it was a pretty good game all the same.

Both goalkeepers were very much to the fore in an entertaining game that saw plenty of good passing football as well as several efforts on goal that hit the woodwork.
