Four games unbeaten as Dickson seals the deal

Long distance thunderbolt from 5 goal Dickson is top drawer winner for Beavers

The Beavers extended their unbeaten run to 4 games with a comfortable 2-1 victory over Chippenham Town, with Chris Dickson's 5th goal of the season being the highlight of the game.

In a full blooded first half, Chippenham Town had the first real shot on target as an attempt from Nick McCootie was blocked on the line by Casey Maclaren midway through the half, before the striker had another shot saved by home keeper Tom Lovelock just afterwards as the visitors put the Beavers under pressure from early on.

McCootie was proving to be a thorn in the Beavers side, as he bustled his way through the Hampton defence, another shot on the half hour only just cleared the bar.

With 5 mins to go to the half time break, James Guthrie tried to catch Lovelock out at his near post, but Tom was alert and caught the fierce shot.

Hampton had their best chance of the first half with seconds to go in the first half when Tyrell Miller-Rodney managed to get a half yard of space in the area, but his shot was too precise and was saved by Will Henry in the Chippenham goal.

Dickson was clear in the mood following his goal against Torquay and. He opened up the half with a full-blooded strike from 30 yards which had Henry stretching to tip over the bar as the Beavers looked to force the game.

Just after the hour, the Beavers got a little lucky as Rian Bray's clearance fell kindly into the path of McCootie; the big striker clearly fancied his chances of opening the scoring but Tom Lovelock narrowed the angle and blocked the shot, denying Chippenham the first goal.

A few minutes later though, the Beavers were the ones to take the lead.

Dan Uchechi chased down a pass into the corner, and tried a shot from the angle of the box, but it was parried by Henry at the near post; the winger was alert to the situation though, and he cut back the rebound to Tyrell Miller-Rodney who crashed the ball past the covering defenders and into the net from close range.

Chippenham hadn't given up and with some 5 minutes left, Will Richards forced a diving save from Tom Lovelock as the Bluebirds still felt they could get at least a point from the game

With a couple of minutes to go though, Chris Dickson extended the lead for the Beavers with a great strike from distance.

Controlling Tom Lovelock's goal kick neatly some 30 yards out, he turned the defender and then thundered the ball past Henry into the top corner of the net, leaving the keeper with no chance.

With the final kick of the game, Nat Jarvis deflected Will Richards' goal bound header over Lovelock into the net to give the Bluebirds something to cheer on their journey home.

After the match, Gary was pretty pleased with the day's performance.

"We definitely dealt with some problems today in the face of adversity, with 3 players out before the game and Casey Maclaren injured in the game, but we always said it was always about the squad.

"We had to dig deep for the win, it wasn't the most attractive game out there, and it was a real battle.

"As much as we've improved, and a team coming together, this squad is still work in progress. I'm proud of the players we've put together in really trying circumstances, and there's still a lot of difficult games and weeks ahead."

"But 10 points from the last 12 points available is a fantastic return.
