Bath put pressure on the Chelmsford defence in the first 15 minutes, but the Chelmsford defence held firm and their west country opponents were unable to create any clear cut chances.

However, that changed when Jonny Codling was allowed to run straight through the Chelmsford defence and fire home.

Chelmsford were under some pressure still, but managed to create some chances themselves. Richard Nourse fired just wide after some good work and Duncan Woods sent two crosses over which just eluded a touch from any forward.

Whenever Chelmsford were threatening to attack though the Bath defence was very quick to break down play at any opportunity.

Bath managed to get some important momentum just before the break when James Kellock fired home from a corner.

This fired them up for the second half and they came out looking to finish the game off as soon as possible. This they did with three goals in the first six minutes from Kellock, Philip Ball and Christopher Cargo.

The game became incredibly stretched, with both sides clearly on the hunt for goals.

Chelmsford created some chances themselves, including three one on ones with the goalkeeper, however they couldn't convert the chances presented to them.

Bath were able to finish the game off on a high when, with three minutes remaining, James Grogan completed the scoring.

Chelmsford will look forward to their away trip to Southgate next week. The Middlesex side currently top the table, but with three games left and everything still incredibly tight at the top, Southgate know that only a win will do for them.
