Chew Magna 45's Report;

"The teams had a real battle against the conditions, a muddy pitch and swirling 20mph winds throughout the game. This caused some interesting boomerang shots and kicks from both teams. It was a very close fought affair, Chew were on top for most of the first half but couldn’t make the crucial breakthrough as the Cardiff defence held firm. The Accies then came more into the game and Chew keeper Keen made a crucial block to prevent a goal. At the beginning of the second half Chew lost two of their midfielders to hamstring pulls, but the squad all dug in and battled hard as they strove for the win. It was an even second half with chances for both sides before Lewis who had worked tirelessly up front managed to evade his marker and fired a superb shot from outside the area to give Chew the lead about 15 minutes from the end. Chew sat deep to hold onto the lead, and Cardiff threw men forward in search of the equaliser. This created opportunities for Chew on the break, but they were unable to take the chance to put the result beyond doubt. Cardiff battled till the final whistle, but the defence was resolute, and Chew held on for a very hard won 1-0. Looking forward to the trip to Cardiff for the return fixture in March. "
