|Neil Sanders reports from Stonebridge Road|
|Chatham Town||1||Amadi 87|
|The local rivals who have both made
decent starts to the season, provided an entertaining midweek cup tie,
writes Neil Sanders.
Dartford had the first opening when the Chatham
defence froze at a free kick and watched a diving header sail past the
After the break Chatham started to gain more control in midfield with Steve Best and man of the match Matt Solly winning a number of tackles to set up attacks. Cass, Best and sub Rob Denness all went close whilst at the other end Dartford sub Ian Pulman was finding space to fire in a number of shots at Chats keeper Louis Green.
With three minutes left and the game seemingly
heading towards extra time, Solly won possession again with an excellent
tackle and found Cass moving into the Dartford penalty area. He
spotted Izzy Amadi coming in at the far post and the low cross was
finished well by the Chats sub to send them through to the second round.
