With Darren Chitty still injured, Frome were again grateful to Melksham Town for the loan of a goalkeeper, but this time Alex Shaftoe took his place between the posts instead of Rob Brown, and once again the keeper would go on to have a good match. With both Chesham and Frome having only lost once in their last six matches, and with both now mathematically safe from relegation, this match could have been an “end of season” affair, but it was clear from the start that both sides were looking to end the season on a positive note and there was a good tempo right from the start. Right from the start, Frome looked threatening and after an early Jon Davies had just failed to curl inside the far post and Dan Cleverley had volleyed over the bar, Shaftoe made his first save of the night as he save with his legs as Sam Youngs hit a low snap shot on the turn. Frome went very close in the 21st as a defence splitting pass from Darren Jefferies allowed Mike Bryant to bring a good save from Shane Gore, and from the resulting corner Gore again did well to deny Sam Teale who had perfectly timed his jump and header. Frome continued to look dominant and they took the lead in the 27th as Bryant won another corner which was taken short to Jefferies who then powered into the box and hit a low left foot shot into the corner from 15 yards to give Frome a lead that they thoroughly deserved. After Shaftoe had made a brave save at the feet of Kelvin Bossman following a rare Chesham attack, Frome again kept the pressure on with good interchange football on both wings, but as the half time whistle approached, there were signs that Chesham were starting to warm to the task with more structured attacks. After a brief attacking flurry from the hosts at the start of the second half, it then became clear that Chesham were going to be a different side in the second half, and they started dominating possession and territory and getting the ball into dangerous areas. They equalised in the 55th as a dangerous free kick was swung in from the right and as Shaftoe went up for the ball under pressure, it broke to Curtis Ujah who was on hand to score from close range. The equaliser led to Chesham increasing their domination and with most of the play now in the Frome half, the defence were doing well to cope with the physical challenge of the Chesham attackers. After Shaftoe had made a point blank save in the 70th to deny a Sam Youngs header, a rare Frome counter attack led to Jefferies shooting just over from the edge of the area, but Chesham looked the most likely to get the winner and after a couple of shots had just cleared the bar, they had a big chance in the 79th as Ryan Blake broke clear but pulled his shot wide with seemingly an empty goal to aim at. With no other real chances in the match, as the referee blew the whistle for full time, he then immediately showed a straight red card to Chesham’s Nick Beasant for “foul and abusive language”, having shown the player a yellow card for a similar offence a few minutes earlier. Darren Jefferies was awarded the H&B Tyres Man of the Match Award by match sponsors H&B Tyres.
