Tuesday 18th October 2016
Hythe Town were made to battle for the points in their game at Chipstead but did come out 2-1 winners on Tuesday evening.
There was very little goalmouth action for the first quarter of an hour as both sides tested each other out. Hythe were enjoying the majority of the possession and had the ball in the net on 16 minutes as Alfie May broke through chipping the ball into the net but the referees assistant was flagging for offside. However May was not to be denied as Liam King on 19 minutes sent in a through ball which gave May the opportunity to get his foot to the ball which cleared Chipstead keeper Shiekh Cessay. Two home defenders could not clear the ball away and it ended in the back of the net to give Hythe the lead. Hythe continued to dominate this phase of the game and Matt Newman was the next to feed the ball through to May but this time he sent his shot wide.
Chipstead had to wait until the 36th minute for their first attack and it did bring their equaliser. Raheem Sterling-Parker got on the end of a deep cross to side foot home. This seemed to give the hosts a boost and they threatened the Hythe goal again within two minutes as this time Sterling-Parker passed to Ollie Twum but he sent his shot wide from twenty yards. May did have another effort for Hythe before the break as he had a free kick smothered by Cessay. Chipstead did have one opportunity in injury time as Sterling-Parker turned and shot but Josh Burchell was on hand to block.
The early exchanges in the second period saw Chris O’Flaherty test Joe Mant but the Hythe keeper pushed the shot wide for a corner. Hythe then seemed to up the gears for a time as first May cut in and sent a curling shot just wide and then a melee in the Chipstead penalty area saw five shots blocked as Hythe desperately tried to find another goal. However Chipstead continued to provide a threat at the other end as firstly Twum shot wide of the target and then substitute Josh Fuller sent an attempt straight into Mant’s arms. Hythe finally got their noses in front on 81 minutes as a quick break down the right saw Charlie Webster deliver a deep cross to Kenny Pogue who headed home.
Hythe had to survive a period of pressure as Chipstead looked for an equaliser. With two minutes left of normal time, O’Flaherty sent in a free kick which forced Joe Mant to push the ball over the bar and then deep in injury time Chris Nelson hit a free kick low but wide of the target. Hythe weathered the storm and came away with all three points.
This victory continues a fine eight match winning run which has now pushed Hythe up into third place with games in hand on the two teams above.
