Chippenham - Home

Post by TW3 Beaver »

Not a good start.

Fisher booked early on, and now Dean Inman has gone off injured.

Just over 15 minutes gone.

0-0.

That's the official report, but it would be fair to say that Chippenham 'earned' their point. They had a very clear game plan - to waste time, disrupt tempo and frustrate the Hampton players/crowd. And it worked. The diving started early, the time wasting started round 50 minutes (at one point I timed their 'keeper take 2.5 minutes to take a goal kick) and the referee allowed it.

We hit the crossbar and (I think) post, had the better chances, but not that many of them.
