Generals upbeat despite Hinckley verdict
NOT even having a 3-0 victory rubbed out off the record books has taken the shine off Chesham United’s recent run.
Their 3-0 triumph at Hinckley last Saturday was chalked off on Monday when the Leicestershire side was wound up, but Chesham simply went out and did it again on Tuesday when Cambridge City came to The Meadow.
Manager Andy Leese said: “Hinckley have been under threat for a while and it all came to a head on Monday.
“But that doesn’t change the fact that we scored three goals and kept a clean sheet.
“And I thought we were excellent on Tuesday night as well. Once we got a foothold in the game we were excellent and didn’t take our foot off the gas.
“The players are working really hard again and they deserve all the credit.”
Chesham have now won 24 of their 34 league games since January 1, losing just four times.
More goals have also been added to the equation this season with Steve Wales, Drew Roberts and Sam Potten netting on Tuesday to make it 18 in their last six games.
But Hemel Hempstead are still the team to catch, clear at the top thanks to a winning run stretching back to the first weekend of the season.
Leese said: “Hemel are setting the pace and it’s for everyone else just to stay in there.
“They’re rattling in the goals every week and have had ten straight wins.
“I remember Leamington doing something similar in a division lower, and Nuneaton, and you just have to stay in there.
“Every team has a dip, although Hemel are showing no signs of it yet.
“But I don’t feel under pressure. A time honoured phrase of managers is consistency and ten games in it looks pretty good. So far, so good.”
On Saturday Chesham can make up further ground on Hemel, who are in cup action, when they go to Chippenham.
