Match Report: Stalemate at Tatnam in nothing game

Poole Town 0

Chesham United 0

Poole Town failed to win at home for the fourth game in a row as they were were held by Chesham United in what was in all truths a boring afternoon.

Both goalkeepers were largely bystanders in the first half, with neither side getting a hold of the ball – and when they did have possession, rarely did they do anything with it.

A Bradley Clayton free-kick was nestling into the far corner before Tommy Scott performed an acrobatic save to tip it out for a corner.

Poole also had one moment of danger, with Tony Lee leaping at the back post to reach a corner.

Much like Clayton’s effort, Lee’s header was seemingly goal bound – before the intervention of a Chesham defender to send it away from goal and the send the two sides back into the changing rooms locked at 0-0.

The second half continued in much the same vein with little occurring of note. The game meandered with little goal threat, with the only event the dismissal of Eoin Casey for a second yellow.

His late challenge saw him rake his studs down Carmichael’s shin, but Poole were unable to take advantage with only five minutes left.

In fact, the away side came closest to a winner with an ambitious drive, with Tommy Scott again alert to tip the dipping effort over the bar.

Despite the lengthy added time of five minutes, neither side produced anything – and nor did either side deserve to take three points.

Poole: Scott, Dickson, Jackson, Spetch, Whisken (C), Carmichael, Moore, Holmes (Rose 68′), Davey, Burbidge (Chipangura 75′), Lee

Unused: Wright, Genesini, Wickham
