Magpies Return to the Summit

Maidenhead United returned to the top of the Vanarama National League South table following a hard-earned 1-0 win at Melbourne Stadium against fourth-placed Chelmsford City on Monday night.

Maidenhead made the early running and the hosts were limited to breakaways.

 

Dave Tarpey (pictured) ame closest to opening the scoring for United in the 23rd minute, but he was denied by some excellent City defending.

 

A disappointing first half saw City`s Michael Spillane charge forward from the set-piece and looked to be brought in the box, but the referee waved play-on.

 

Anthony Church had a shot saved by Lloyd Pentney as Chelmsford ended the first half in the ascendancy.

 

However, a minute into time added on at the end of the opening period, Maidenhead were awarded a penalty for handball against Josh Hill and Tarpey stepped up to convert the spot-kick.

 

Seven minutes after the restart, Liam Enver-Marum had a header tipped over Pentney, who was certainly the busier keeper in the second period as City looked to get back into the game.

 

The experienced keeper was fortunate on the hour-mark though when he spilled a Chris Dickson shot, but Josh Rees` follow up was blocked on the line.

 

Fifteen minutes from time, Tarpey came close to doubling Maidenhead`s lead when he had a shot superbly saved by Ross Fitzsimons.

 

But, despite a valiant effort in the second period, Chelmsford`s unbeaten home run came to an end.
