GREAT Chishill recorded a good in their first away match of the season but had a huge slice of luck to get them on their way.

After a scrappy opening 15 minutes they took the lead when Gary Radford's corner was punched into the net by the Comberton keeper.

Soon afterwards another Radford corner was headed in by a defender for a second own goal and Chishill were on their way to a comfortable win with Jon Hodge's link up play a particular highlight.

The game was sealed before half time when Ali Porter raced through to slot home his second goal of the season.

The second half saw a less energetic performance from Chishill as Comberton fought to get back in the game, but the hosts never really looked like scoring.

Elliot Drury had a close range effort blocked while Peter Jackson had a shot saved brilliantly by the keeper, but Chishill did finally manage a fourth when substitute Gareth Edey scored on his return from injury when running on to a through ball he beat the keeper with a sweet drive from the edge of the box with the outside of his boot.

Chishill: Bennett; R Drury, Gardiner, Saward, Bramwell, Jackson, E Drury, J Drury, Radford, J Hodge, Porter. Subs: Edey, T Hodge.
