Chalfont St Peter continue to steadily climb the table as a brace of wins in three days catapulted them up the league.

It began with a 1-0 win over AFC Dunstable on Saturday, thanks to a solitary goal from debutant Ben Ward-Cochrane.

Forced into the transfer market to swell the flagging ranks, the arrival of Ward-Cochrane was an immediate hit as he settled quickly into the role of leading the line.

Victor Osubu, searching for his return to the score sheets, worked hard and both he and George Beattie were denied by keeper Jamie Head, who was kept busy as Saints looked to take advantage of their extra pace.

Ward-Cochrane chased down a good pass after some outstanding battling play from Mark Goodman, rounded the keeper and passed back to Beattie who saw his shot cleared off the line by Carney. . 

Just before the break Ward-Cochrane had another effort pushed over by Head, who ensured his side were able to get to the interval with the scores still level.

The breakthrough finally came with a flowing move that more than deserved its match winning outcome. Osobu picked up the ball on halfway and found Beattie down the line. He battled into the area before releasing the ball across to the incoming Ward-Cochrane who placed his shot low into the far corner.

It was the same again on Tuesday, this time Osubu the hero as his goal fended off a brave performance by Kempston Rovers.

The Saints hope to keep up their good run as they face Ashford Town on Saturday at Mill Meadow (kick off 3pm).
