POINTS DROPPED: Wealdstone held to draw away at Chippenham Town

Wealdstone came from behind to claim a point away at Chippenham Town, but see their lead at the top of the National League South narrow to three points.

Michee Efete’s second half equaliser meant the Stones didn’t leave empty handed, after Twine initially gave Chippenham the lead on the 14th minute. 

Michael Phillips had a brilliant opportunity in the 5th minute of the game when he had space inside the penalty area, but his effort went far over the crossbar.

Twine gave Chippenham the lead on the 14th minute after his close range effort went beyond Aston Oxborough. 

Jerome Okimo had the ball in the net for Wealdstone on the 28th minute, but play was brought back for an earlier foul.

It didn’t take long in the second half for Wealdstone to get themselves back in the game, and it was the prolific Efete who calmly slotted the ball home with a left-footed strike. 

Sanchez Watt got himself back in the starting line up after impressing last weekend, and he went so close to giving Wealdstone the lead on the 55th minute but his effort was cleared off the line.

Wealdstone had a goal ruled out once again on the 69th minute, this time Moses Emmanuel was the man to see the goal chalked off.

Oxborough denied Chippenham a late goal after an acrobatic effort from Rigg was saved by the number one.

Wealdstone had to settle for a point in the end, and now see their lead at the top of the Vanarama National League South narrow to three points.

The Stones do still have a game in hand though, and their next match is at home against struggling Braintree Town on March 21.
