GREAT Chishill moved up to fourth in the league with a hard-fought ­victory over Hardwick.

With the teams starting the match level on points, this was always going to be a tight encounter.

The visitors had the better of the first half, and Chishill goalkeeper Ian Gallagher made several fine saves to keep the scores level.

There was controversy just before half time, when Chishall's Gary Radford was denied what looked like a clear penalty when he was brought down in the box.

Hardwick were left to rue those missed chances, as Chishill took control after the break.

Radford tormented their defence with his pace on the wing, while up front Alex Porter and Steve McGee were full of running.

It was McGee who struck the opening goal, heading Dan ­Manning's long ball past the keeper.

Manning also created the second goal, when his free kick was slotted home at the far post by substitute Jay Wiltshire.
