GREAT Chishill edged away from the BIS 2A relegation battle with a fine 3-1 victory against promotion chasing Thaxted.

The visitors did get their noses in front with a well-taken opener after just four minutes, with a low shot from the edge of the box beating Ian Gallagher.

Chishill responded well though, and drew level when Stuart Hulks squeezed the ball home from a tight angle.
