Clapton 0 Sawbridgeworth Town 0
In front of their highest home crown of the season, Clapton just failed to take all three points in a thrilling encounter at the Dog.
Spurred on by a vociferous crowd, including, the now famous Ultras who were occupying the ‘Scaffold’, the Tons turned in another good performance and, with some luck and better finishing, could have grabbed all three points.
Brandon Martin, who’s work on the wing was to test the visitors all afternoon, unfortunately left his shooting boots at home and spurned a couple of opportunities either side of half time.
On the other flank, George Whitelock who, once again, impressed for the Tons, was tormenting Sawbridgeworth with his surging runs at their defence. It was Whitelock who cam closest to scoring when his pwerful header was superbly turned over the bar by the Sawbo keeper.
At the other end, Hussein Jaffa and Sonny Lindsay were in superb form at the hart of the Clapton defence and it was only late on in the game when Pepe Diagne was called upon to make a full length save from an Sawbo striker.
All in all, Clapton were a touch unlucky but there are positives, as well as the excellent attendance and support, to be taken from this match which now sees the Tons unbeaten in 3 games with 2 clean sheets.
