CHISHILL'S good run of form continued as they won a closely fought contest at Papworth on Saturday.

The opening exchanges were tight with few chances for both teams on a sun-drenched afternoon.

Papworth saw a close-range shot roll inches wide and another opportunity headed over when it looked easier to score.

At the other end, Gary Radford's header did little to trouble the keeper, while Oli Gardiner's goal-bound shot was blocked in the nick of time.

The start of the second half saw little change, but the visitors took the lead on the hour when Elliot Drury played in Radford who cut the ball back for Jonathan Drury to smash a half volley through the keeper's legs.

After the goal, the visitors offered little in response, with Chishill comfortably dealing with the main threat from long balls.
