Chelmsford City 2-1 Hemel Hempstead Town.
After just edging the first half against a side, who had only lost once this season we conceded an early second half penalty that seemed to knock the stuffing out of us.
We were second best after this and The Clarets missed two or three decent chances before eventually going two up in the 83rd minute when an attempted clearance got deflected into the path of Charlie Ruff who chipped the ball in to ease the home fans worries.
Jordan Greenidge somehow managed to put a great chance over the bar from six yards out with five minutes left before Josh Lelan pulled a goal back in the 90th minute. Hemel pushed forward as the clock ticked down but it proved to be in vain as City held on to take all three points.
Chelmsford are sitting fourth in the table but on the balance of todays play, there was little between the two sides. Onwards and upwards with a visit to Chippenham Town on Tuesday evening.
