 Published on: 30th November 2019   |   By: News Desk   |   Category: Berkhamsted F.C

Berkhamsted gave their home fans another fantastic showing after putting three past visitors Daventry Town in a convincing 3-0 win.

The Comrades showed their worth in a challenging game as they secured their eleventh win in fifteen league games this season.

It was an even but lively start to the first-half with the first chance falling to the visitors after a mistake from the goalkeeper led to a vital clearance off the line from a Berkhamsted defender who kept it 0-0.

Both sides continued their fast and aggressive start with chances falling to both sets of players in a first 20 minutes which was end to end.

With the visitors having the better of the first 20, a sharp counter attack on the 23rd minute from The Comrades saw Akubine tap home after the keeper pushed the ball into his direction. 1-0.

60 seconds from kick off and Berkhamsted made it 2-0 after a slip up at the back saw the ball fall to Lewis who slotted home.

The visitors needed to regather and welcomed the referee’s whistle to end the first half.

Daventry started the second as the better team much similar to the way they started the game but struggled to capitalise in the final third.

With the visitors struggling to score a much-deserved goal, clinical Berkhamsted finished the game and made it 3-0.

A real mix up in the box saw the ball go into the net off a Daventry defender which was against the run of play.

Three goals secured all three points in a game which was challenging for second place Berko.

That win puts them still two points behind league leaders Corby Town who are sitting on 38 points out of a possible 45.

The Comrades next play Yaxley on December 7.
