Step too far for Beavers against Chelmsford

Clarets too good on the day for threadbare Hampton

Hampton's shortage of striking resources - Culley being suspended and Mullings recalled to Forest Green - made life hard for the Beavers with Christian Jolley being the only experienced forward in the camp for Dowse to call on.

Despite their hard work, it just wasn't happening for the team during the match, as a quick Chelmsford midfield pressed relentlessly to deny space and time.

Although the Beavers made a bright start, the Clarets took the lead in the 9th minute with their first attack following a positive start by the home team.

Chris Dickson made space down the right hand side, his cross into the box was met by Kane Haysman, whose header floated and bounced into the net past keeper Sam Howes.

The visitors were making inroads down the Hampton left and Theophanous nearly made it a second with a attempt that Howes had to block by his near post.

The Clarets extended their lead on the half hour as Louis Theophanous drilled the ball past Howes from the edge of the box; Dickson looked to be offside as he sought to make certain of Theophanous' shot right on the goal line, but after a brief consultation between referee and assistant, the goal stood.

As the interval closed in, Harold Odametey was looking to continue his run of recent goals with a minute to go but his shot was always rising and went over the bar.

After the break, the Beavers came close with Brendan Kiernan's shot, which rippled the side-netting and then Shaquille Hippolyte-Patrick fired over after being under heavy pressure.

Just after the hour, Hippolyte-Patrick went down in the box under pressure from the Chelmsford defence but after a look, the referee waved it away.

Chelmsford were not creating the chances they had had in the first half, Anthony Church firing over after Theophanous' found space on the right being the best they could produce as the Beavers held on.

With 5 minutes to go, Elliott Buchanan lined up a free kick from some 25 yards; his shot looked destined for the top corner but was acrobatically tipped over the bar by Howes to keep it to 2-0.

Hampton kept throwing men and balls forward, Nathan Collier serving as the extra forward but in the end, the Clarets deserved their win.
