City put in a tired performance as they ended their home league programme with a goal-less draw against Chalfont. The last two weeks of intense action, plus enforced changes to rest players and protect those carrying knocks, clearly took a toll as they struggled to find any real momentum.

No real surprise that Chalfont held the upper hand in the early stages. Alex Paine planted a header just off target, and another header soon after, following a corner saw Adam Kirby come close to opening the scoring.

Eventually, City began to come into the game and Ryan Sharman saw Carl Dennison save with his legs, although the flag had been raised for offside. This seemed to lift City a little bit, but any attacking intentions were more often than not, curtailed by a mis-placed pass or indecision.

Chalfont finished the half, in which they had been the better side, as they had started it, by threatening to break the deadlock with a couple of chances. However, one was well blocked by Jordan Williams, whilst the other from another set-piece saw a header flash over the bar.

City appeared back out on the pitch early following the interval, no doubt with some choice words ringing in their ears from the management, and it seemed to have the desired effect.

Early on, Sam Squire headed down to James Hall who turned his marker and unleashed a thumping drive, but it arrowed just over the bar. Chalfont countered with an effort of their own, Ryan Haugh producing a neat run and shot that was pushed away by Josh Bexon.

The sides continued to trade efforts on goal. Just before the hour mark, Ryan Sharman had a great chance at the back post when Ryan Towner picked him out with a cross, but under pressure, he could not guide his header on target. Back came Chalfont and Haugh again went close as his cross shot fizzed just past the far post.

As the game drifted towards a conclusion, excitement levels were suddenly raised as Towner’s through ball sent Jack Vasey clear. Dennison came out to meet him, bringing the striker down. He received a straight red for his indiscretion while all City got was a free-kick on the edge of the area that was duly wasted.

There was still time for one last opportunity for the home side. In the final minute, a long throw caused huge problems for the Chalfont defence as they struggled to clear, Jordan Gent looked to have set up Squire for a last gasp winner, but he was denied by a last ditch defensive intervention and the chance was gone.

Moments later the final whistle sounded and now thoughts must turn to preparing the side ahead of next week’s playoff as the club head to Moneyfields for their final league game of the season on Saturday.
