Highlights: Cheshunt 4 Lewes 0

By Ian Townsend

A crucial win for the Ambers

Cheshunt were looking to bounce back after two defeats, and were beginning to feel a little heat in eighteenth place as fourth bottom Margate had begun to close the gap. Three points for the Ambers against Lewes was more than desirable, and they had a fine start, Nathaniel Orafu putting them ahead on the quarter hour and an own goal doubling their advantage just three minutes later. The Rooks, with only one win from their previous six, had seen their play off hopes evaporate over recent weeks, and their misery continued when Nnamdi Nwachuku made it three-nil with twenty three minutes left. Nwachuku got his second of the afternoon, and his sides fourth, eight minutes from time- a result which ensured they maintained their six point lead over Margate with both sides having four games to play.
