Chesham face league leaders twice in one week

CHESHAM play the league leaders for the second time in a week tomorrow when they go away to St Albans.

The Meadow Men lost 3-1 at home to Aldershot who were top of the Premier Division but St Albans' win in midweek puts them in first place, making it a daunting place to visit.

But manager Colin Lippiatt is relishing the prospect.

He said: "They've got good facilities and a good pitch. It will be interesting and if we get anything from the game, I'll be happy."

But Lippiatt was less than happy about Chesham's defensive performance against Aldershot on Saturday.

He said: "When you look at their line-up and their strength in depth, you can't give them a three-goal start.

"We made basic mistakes and we were punished for them."

And Lippiatt highlighted the Shots' third goal just before half time as the killer blow which put paid to Chesham.

He said: "In football matches, if you're 2-0 down and get one back, it puts pressure on them."

But all Chesham had to show for their second half display was Tresor Kandol's consolation.

And Lippiatt wants to tighten up his defence.

He said: "If you look at the stats for goals scored, we're in the top three. But we're in the bottom three for goals against.

"It's a bit of a Kevin Keegan situation."

But Chesham will have to go into the game against St Albans without Mark Nwokeji, Stephen Miles or Kevin Mealor, while Julian Capone and Darren Hay face fitness tests. Marcel Nugent is back after a one-match suspension.
