1-0 up half time. Chips have hit the post, but also could have had a player sent off for a nasty tackle

Tonight's team:

Garner;
Tancock,Jones,Baggridge,Davies;
Traylor,Wright,Evans,Jenkins;
McLaggon,Reffell;

Subs:
Prosser for McLaggon after about 74 minutes
Brown for Traylor after about 85 minutes
Hugh
Bloom
Bowen

With Gethin Jones fit again Scott Tancock moved to right back with Adam Davies on the left. Ryan Prosser was fit to return as substitute. For Chippenham their star striker Andy Sandell was missing due to hamstring trouble following their match on Saturday.

The play was mostly with Chippenham early on although Kayne McLaggon did have one break into the Chippenham area but was unable to trouble the goalkeeper.

We then began to come into the game more, and after about 12 minutes from a throw-in on the right Ian Traylor and Keyon Reffell combined for the latter to cut the ball back well from the byline, but Corey Jenkins' flick at the near post went just wide.

About 3 minutes later Ian Traylor did well on the right and put over a cross which led to a header from Jarrad Wright which was headed away by a defender in the 6-yard area - not quite on the line.

A goal was coming, and on about 18 minutes Keyon Reffell did well to close down a defender and win the ball on the right of the area and play the ball back to pick out the unmarked Ian Traylor running into the area and he fired past the keeper from 15 yards.

After their early good play Chippenham had been getting rather sloppy prior to our goal, but they came as close to a goal as they did all game after about 32 minutes when a shot from outside the area on the right was hammered across Glyn Garner and thumped against the far post.

A couple of minutes later the Chippenham no. 6 seemed fortunate to escape with only a booking when he chopped down Corey Jenkins as he broke forward.

Just before half time Jenkins again broke down the left and pulled the ball back to Kayne McLaggon on the edge of the area, but with time to pick his spot he sent his shot a yard wide.

But we were good value for the half time lead despite Chippenham's shot against the post, and the only worry was that we'd not made the most of our other opportunities to get a second goal.

A couple of minutes after the break, Jenkins again cut the ball back from the byline on the left to Kayne McLaggon but he turned the ball just wide.

We were creating fewer real openings than in the first half but generally keeping Chippenham from creating anything really dangerous, but after about 63 minutes they had a good chance only for an attacker to put a shot over the bar from fairly close in when he might have done better.

Ryan Prosser replaced Kayne McLaggon, who had worked hard, after about 74 minutes.

Chippenham had a similar chance to their earlier one after about 76 minutes when again a shot was put over the bar from fairly close in on the right.

Jon Brown replaced Ian Traylor after about 85 minutes.

In the last 10 minutes or so Chippenham had been pushing forward to try and get something out of the game, and we had one or two openings for a break to catch them out but hadn't quite been able to get it right. Their goalkeeper, Kauppinen, as we saw in the Red Insure Cup game, was getting more and more adventurous in coming out of his area to play balls forward, and even took a throw in at one point. In fact he went up for a late corner, and on another occasion if Glyn Garner had spotted he was on the half way line he could have tried to score with a clearance.

But right at the end we won the ball just inside the Chippenham half to the left, and when the ball came to Ryan Prosser midway in the half he saw Kauppinen on the edge of his area and was able to lob the ball over him and into the net for what was literally the last kick of the match as there was no time for the game to be restarted.

Well, this was arguably our best win at home this season and against a side who would have gone top of the table with a win we overall deserved the 2-0 scoreline.  They did hit the post and have two chances in the second half, but otherwise we allowed them very little else, and in the first half we had something of a purple patch with Keyon Reffell, Ian Traylor and Corey Jenkins especially prominent in attack and could easily have had more than one goal to show for it.

I don't know if you could say we were lucky Chippenham were without Andy Sandell (I imagine he would have played in the originally-scheduled fixture) as he might have put one or two of their chances away. I saw on Chippenham's forum before the game their supporters were worried about their chances of continuing to challenge at the top without him in the side, and tonight's game maybe shows they were right to be worried. They looked a very slick side early on, but then a lot of unforced errors began creeping in.

I can't choose a man of the match as everyone did well, and without any disrespect to James Bloom or Chris Hugh we certainly looked solid in defence with Adam Davies on the left and Scott Tancock on the right.

I thought there were quite a few more than 302 of us at the Park last night - could this be a transcription error, as its the same number as for the adjacent result for Paulton?

Taken off the Chippenham web site:-

Chippenham paid the price for missing three good chances as they went down to defeat in Wales.
They were chasing the game as early as the nineteenth minute and conceded a second with the last kick of the match after keeper Kent Kauppinen paid the price for playing on the half way line.
The Bluebirds started brightly enough but were given two warning shots as Corey Jenkins hit the side netting and Kayne McLaggon failed to capitalise on a goalmouth scramble.
Merthyr took the lead when Chippenham failed to cut out a right wing cross leaving Ian Traylor to fire home from a central position.
The Bluebirds suffered another blow just past the half hour mark when Chris Allen had to leave the field with a hamstring injury. James Guthrie had two chances in as many minutes first shooting over before seeing his curling free kick tipped away by Glyn Garner.
However the best chance of the half fell in between those Guthrie chances on thirty two minutes to Ollie Taylor who turned his man on the edge of the area before his low shot beat Garner but rolled against a post and bounced harmlessly away.
Before the break Merthyr's Keyon Reffell and McLaggon both failed to find the target. After the interval McLaggon flicked the ball into the side netting and Jarrad Wright's shot was deflected behind.
Midway through the half Taylor again wasted a good opportunity when he blazed over from the edge of the box.
Jenkins then headed over from a Scott Tancock cross.
Chippenham's best chance of the game fell to Greg Tindle ten minutes from time when a set piece left him hitting the bar from six yards out as the ball unfortunately fell to his weaker right foot.
As the match reached stoppage time Kauppinen joined the attack for a corner and also played a high line to aid Chippenham's attacking options.
Unfortunately he was caught out in the ninety third minute by substitute Ryan Prosser who sent a forty yard shot over his head and into the empty net with the last kick of the game.
