A second away match on the bounce last Saturday saw the Yellows transform into the Whites for the afternoon, and transform from a clinical passing team into a side with few ideas and little cutting edge. Keeping it brief Tivvy came away with a point from a 0-0 draw but it was anything but a good performance, and home side Cheshunt will be wondering how they didn’t lift themselves from the foot of the table. Ray Johnston once again proved his worth with the highlight of the match, diving full-length to his right to tip Dave Hicks’ snapshot wide of the post, while Will Gardner made a brace of important last gasp interceptions to cap what was by far his best performance in a Tiverton shirt.




Cheshunt are probably bottom of the league because they can’t hit the target, and on any number of occasions both Cox and his strike partner George Gregoriou came closer to the clouds than the goal net. Paul Wyatt might have stolen the points for Tivvy but he also got beneath a shot too much while Carl Cliff-Brown saw a late header saved by Bobby Smith. All in all it wasn’t a pretty sight, and just about justifies two paragraphs. Eeuugghh!
