I had a hunch this would happen.


Histon didn't look anything like a team in the bottom two, they needed the points for survival and were up for it in the first half, not having many efforts at our onion bag but scoring two well taken goals by Matty Allan in the 9th and Max York in the 19th, the latter a looping 25 yarder. We didn't threaten much in the first half, but Weighty saw an excellent long range effort superbly saved by Ayden Duffy. 


Histon nearly got a third near the start of the second half but we finally kicked into gear and got back into the game when a lovely curling free kick from 25 yards out was majestically headed into the corner by Romario in the 63rd. After that we pressed and pressed and deserved at least a point, but Histon parked the bus while still going forward whenever they could, and, while we did play some nice stuff, a mixture of profligate finishing by a number of players (from Russ at the back through to sub Flemmo) and two more fine saves by Duffy took the points to Cambridgeshire.

A horror display by Ashford in the 1st half of this game, Ashford conceded on 9 minutes because of very poor and sloppy marking which resulted in a Histon player standing unmarked in the 6 yard box with a simple tap in, and Histon scored again in the 19th minute when Histon's number 5 scored a cracker.
Ashford huffed and puffed for the remainder of the half but got nowhere, they allowed Histon to dominate play and the Ashford players were getting frustrated which caused stupid tackles and needless fouls and free kicks,Histon were no saints either because they put in there fair share of reckless tackles and needless free kicks as well.
2nd half was much better by Ashford as they tried to get something from this game, and things looked good when Ashford scored in the 63rd minute, but it was not to be and Histon closed the game out and won 1-2 making light of their league position, well done to them.

Histon had a very different look about them from earlier in the season. Away at their ground they had a very young side, but yesterday they had a more mature look about them. A draw may have been a fairer result on the balance of play, but it wasn't to be.
Although Histons' second goal would've been a worthy winner for any game.

This was a match that Histon had to win to stand any chance of avoiding relegation. It showed especially in the first half when they pressed us all over the pitch and made it difficult for us to get into our rhythm. Their second goal was an absolute belter, a contender for the best seen at the RPS this season.


We were much better in the second half, after Romario's goal, we had several opportunities to obtain a victory.


We have won 2 out of the last three league games, which is not a bad return. All in all we are having a decent season.

Looking at the table, Histon's away form is actually okay. If you duplicated their away form for 'home' as well, they'd be 11 points better off and five above the drop zone. They must feel even at this late stage they have a chance of catching Northwood, who have apparently lost their last eight and are beginning to look over their shoulders.
