Result: Boldmere 0 Sporting Khalsa 2

Lee Chilton – grabbed his eighth of the season from the spot

It was, as they say, a game of two halves. The first, tight as a crab’s backside with virtually nothing to write home about. The second, open and freed from the shackles of stalemate after Dan Westwood‘s goal within 90 seconds of the restart.

With Lee Chilton completing the scoring on 55 minutes from the penalty spot, it means the dynamic due of he and Westwood now have eight goals apiece.

But it was a team performance from front to back with special credit for Josh Thomas, involved in everything good that Khalsa did all afternoon, and Liam Armstrong, forced into an unfamiliar holding role and carrying out his duties brilliantly.

Boldmere fought back, as you’d expect from them. Ex-Khalsa man Rikardo Reid had the best of their opportunities and Sam Arnold needed to be at this best to deny a potentially game changing goal with a double save from Cameron Gayle and the troublesome Ben Usher-Shipway.

This win – a sixth on the bounce in the league – means Khalsa move quietly up to fourth spot.
