Chalfont St Peter moved into fourth place in the Evo-Stik League South East table, six points behind leaders AFC Rushden & Diamonds, after winning 2-0 at Chestnut Avenue against mid-table Northwood.

But the Saints left it late.

Somehow the game remained goalless until the 87th minute – and that despite Northwood hitting the crossbar and their keeper Xavi Lomas making several fine saves.

It was Jake Cass who broke the deadlock and then 4 minutes into stoppage time, Rob Hastings made sure with a second for the visitors.

Aylesbury FC hadn`t managed a goal since their Boxing Day derby win over Aylesbury United and went into their home game with lowly Fleet Town on the back of four successive defeats.

Well, the Moles managed to bring an end to both of those statistics, although they could only share the spoils.

It took them only 9 minutes to score their first goal of 2018 from Alfi Touceda.

However, Brad Wilson earned the Hamphire side a point with a 79th minute equaliser.
