Chalfont St Peter were at the hands of a three nil hammering away to Uxbridge FC this afternoon.
A ‘harsh’ first half sending off for the Saints changed the game which was evenly matched before Elliott saw red.
The match, which started off fiery and competitive, was full of chances at both ends, but the home side were more clinical.
Chalfont settled into the game well and were arguably the better side.
A goal line scramble came after a great set piece and Chalfont defender’s hesitation to clear saw an Uxbridge attacker tapping home. 1-0.
Then came the controversy as Luke Elliott went into a 50/50 challenge 110 per cent and the referee judged it as late and sends him off.
Bitmead then made it 2-0 from the penalty spot as Bunting was pushed in the area. Game over.
Bitmead grabbed his second of the match on the 52nd minute after Martin’s shot was saved by the keeper but fell to a lurking Bitmead.
Uxbridge continued their expected dominance with Bitmead pulling the strings and Martin’s shot hitting the bar.
The game finished 3-0 with the red card the main talking point of the 90 minutes.
Luke Elliott shared his frustration with his Twitter followers after the game saying: “Never a red would take a yellow all day long for that today.. there fella does worse than me and gets a yellow decisions cost us today but cant fault anyone out there that gave 110% hats off to the boys that’s why I love leading them out every week”
