Jeffers keeps Beavers in title hunt

A brace from the on-loan forward gives Beavers comfortable win over Hungerford

The Beavers now sit two points behind leaders Havant & Waterlooville as the race for the league title heats up, despite the cold conditions.

Hampton applied the early pressure and following chances for Max Kretzschmar and Bradley Hudson-Odoi, the Beavers took the lead on 25 minutes. A neat move through the Hungerford centre saw Brendan Kiernan drive on into the box before being tripped, giving the referee an easy decision. Kretzschmar stepped forward to take the kick and rammed it high into the top corner for his 13th league goal this season and his 19th overall.

The Beavers took confidence from the goal and started to increase the pressure; Shaun Jeffers beating the offside trap to bear down on the Hngerford goal, Beauchamp having to sprint out to deny the striker.

Jeffers was not to be denied and got his first of the night on 37 minutes. Great anticipation by Sam Long to cut out a Hungerford pass gave him the chance to push forward out of midfield, and getting behind the defence, he squared the ball to Jeffers who calmly slipped the ball past Beauchamp.

Hungerford hadn't been able to get a serious shot on target, but right before the break, Dieng had to be alert to throw himself to his left and tip over a curling shot over the bar, that looked to be going in.

The second half saw the Beavers control most of the early exchanges but just before the hour, that control took a jolt.

Wynter's pass back missed out Wassmer, meaning Seny Dieng had to sprint out to try and hack the ball clear. However, Leigh-Gilchrist had read the situation and just got to the ball before the keeper, tipping it past him. The striker was left with the easiest of finishes, dribbling the ball into the net.

This setback was almost immediately put behind the Beavers as 5 minutes later, they restored the 2 goal advantage.

Shaun McAuley's cross looked to be a bit of a scuff but it went through to Jeffers who spun his marker, and side footed the ball past Beauchamp from about 10 yards, sending the keeper the wrong way.

The Beavers' control was then reasserted and the game was seen out comfortably to keep Hampton right in the title hunt, following Havant's loss away at Truro.
