Another defeat for The Boro'
Gosport's first goal in six games was the small highlight of a disappointing result as Chesham United netted five in reply.
Chesham United kicked off the Tuesday night fixture under the lights at Privett Park and within three minutes Lewis Toomey had the first chance of the game when his effort was deflectid wide.
Borough showed some early signs of much needed confidence throughout the team but Chesham kept piling the pressure on the home team.
United were gifted a corner leading to a wild rumble in the box. There were several clear cut chances for The Generals but no clinical shot made its way through the Gosport defence. After quarter of an hour, Chesham had had the only real chance of the game.
With twenty minutes played, a great ball was swung over from Chesham’s right hand side with Ravi Shami dancing around the Boro' defense to fire his shot wide.
Five minutes later Shami crossed the ball into David Hutton and a great header found its way into the back of the net to give the visitors the lead. The Gosport defence seemed to be lost with no one picking up their man.
Minutes later and Shami found himself with the ball in the box once again. He pulled back a pass to Toomey who as left with an easy slot into the net to double United's advantage.
Gosport’s early signs of confidence seemed to had vanished very quickly with Chesham running the show.
Borough’s first chance of the game came after 35 minutes in with Alfie Lis let fire a shot fly from thirty yards out but the effort was well saved by the United 'keeper. A great individual effort but no real conviction shown from Gosport’s attack.
The second half began and it’s was evident that the Gosport players wanted to turn this around. Alex Pike’s half time speech kicking in perhaps?
Three minutes into the half, Pat Suraci swung a corner into the box and Craig McAlister popped up to head Borough's first goal in six games. A typical McAlister goal - out strengthening the opposition following up with a powerful header.
On 55 minutes, Alex Pike made his first change with Frankie Paige on for Jack Breen but the match was about to swing away from Gosport.
Just before the hour mark, Chesham were awarded a penalty which was tucked away by Jeferson Louis.
The game became heated after the penalty decision; emotions were high in the Boro' camp with the referee having to speak to various players. Emotions aside Gosport refused to let the game get away from them with hard tackles being thrown in left right and center.
Lewis Toomey saw his cross in from left hand side hit the bar in the 65th minute but four minutes later, Chesham’s pressure prevailed when Jeferson Louis put Toomey through on goal for his second goal of the game.
Boro's second change was made on 74 minutes when Joseph Lea came off for Scott Walters. Chesham also made a chage - Oran Swales for Jefferson. A minute later, Gosport make their third and final change with Joel Jackson on for Oliver Dennett.
With nine minutes left, Chesham added their fifth as Jhai Dillon made his way into the box and slots the sixth goal of the game into the net.
With all momentum now lost for Gosport, it got much worse with Joel Jackson going down in the 89th and limping off the pitch and leaving Gosport with ten men to finish the game.
