Walton wary of Saints revenge

BYRON Walton expects Chalfont St Peter to be out for revenge against his Beaconsfield SYCOB side when they clash this weekend.

BYRON Walton expects Chalfont St Peter to be out for revenge against his Beaconsfield SYCOB side when they clash this weekend.

The near neighbours met in a league game for the first time since 2008 in December when SYCOB comfortably ran out 3-0 winners.

But the game was played amid torrential rain and gale force winds at Holloways Park and Walton expects a much tighter encounter at Mill Meadow on Saturday.

Nine points and seven places separate Chalfont from promotion-chasing Beaconsfield with Walton wary of the play-off lift a home win could give the Saints.

“We won that game quite comfortably in the end but that is mainly because we played the conditions a lot better than they did on he night,” he said.

“They will have been hurting from that because no one likes losing to their rivals. We had it against Slough on Boxing Day and it isn’t nice.

“They will be desperate to put it right at their place and they are having a really good season. This league is tough but they have picked up some fantastic results.

“It will be a really tough game and if we can go there and get another win then we will be in a fantastic position.”

SYCOB warmed up for their derby clash by getting a much-needed win at relegation-threatened Marlow.
