First's pick up point in a classic

By Gary Brigden

An outstanding Step 5 game of football saw the top two play out a superb 2-2 draw in front of a raucous home support.

No-one in the 238 spectators present could have gone away disappointed with the entertainment, or under any illusions why the sides are the top two.

Chertsey struck first when Dave Taylor headed home from close range after Ollie Ellaway had made three blocks in quick succession. The scores were level almost immediately when a Nes Bellikli corner was flicked on by Asa Rixon and Matt Farrell and superbly volleyed home by Daryl Cooper-Smith.

Both sides had chances but went in level at half time.

The second half was a similarly tough affair, Nick Jupp pulled off a stunner from a Farrell header, whilst Ellaway saved well from Chertsey's Jake Baxter, the leagues leading scorer. Chertsey saw Andy Crossley dismissed with 20 minutes remaining for a second booking, but shrugged off the blow by retaking the lead with ten minutes remaining, this time Michael Peacock heading home from close range.

Almost immediately Rovers levelled when a Malachi Robinson cross was headed home by Aidan Brown.

No further scoring and the points were shared.

Full report to follow.
