GREAT Chishill enjoyed a second consecutive clean sheet in a deserved win over Ashdon Villa on Saturday.
The hosts started strongly and put their opponents under pressure in the opening minutes.

Chishill played with confidence and enjoyed the better of the possession but struggled to find the final ball to add to their lead.
