Adams scores again with late goal as unbeaten run extends to five.

With Chalfont on a run of five consecutive draws and Ware already with six drawn games in their league record spectators might have been forgiven for thinking this game would end all square. It certainly looked that way as time ticked away but with 86 minutes on the clock Ware at last unlocked the home defence. Albert Adu's shot was palmed wide by Carl Dennison in the home goal and there was Brandon Adams chasing the ball before it went off before turning to shoot home from what looked a difficult angle.

Ware had started with both newly available full backs on the pitch, Charlie Yexley back from injury on the right and Harry Norman, having finished his suspension, now in the unaccustomed left back spot. They both had good games as did Jack Daveney, returned to midfield after filling Norman's full back role in the three previous games.

In truth the team as a whole played well and signalled their intentions from the very beginning. The opening five minutes saw the home side on the end of a blitzkrieg as Ware kept the pressure on until, following a corner, Dennison claimed a high ball and by holding possession just long enough was able to calm things down.

The rest of the half was an end to end encounter not without chances for both sides but with Ware seeming to have just the edge. Certainly the visitors had a significant lead in the corner count and it was from one of these just past the half way mark in the half that there was some mayhem in the home area. The ball was eventually cleared after hitting a defender on the line.

Chalfont struck back and five minutes later a cross from their right was headed narrowly wide by Michael Kalu. As the contest continued there was a yellow card for the home side's Alex Nolan after a reckless challenge although it seemed more likely that his protestations about the free kick were the cause of his caution. Jack Mullan also picked one up for tripping Charlie Yexley as he broke forward whilst Dave Cowley got one for a sliding tackle that caught an opponent.

It was Cowley who almost gave Ware the lead on the verge of half time when he turned the ball home from close range but after a moment's pause the assistant referee raised his flag to signal offside.

Chalfont started the second half by applying pressure themselves and after three minutes looked about to take the lead as a cross from the left had the Ware defence in trouble. Just when it seemed as though they must score a timely interception saw the ball cleared up field.

Like the opening of the first half the moment had passed and although the home side did seem to apply more pressure on Ware the second half was again an end to end affair but with the visitors enjoying the better openings.

Even so there seemed too many high crosses that the home defence were able to cope with until, as in the first half, a corner looked as though it could bring a Ware goal. In the end a packed defence scotched a close range attempt on goal before Adu was denied by Dennison at foot of his post and then Gareth Madden had a header seemingly come off a post.

So in the end it was Adams with his fifth goal in three matches who sealed the points to celebrate his commitment to the club following interest from another Step 4 side.

Following their September league cup meeting Ware picked up a second win at Chalfont to go five games without defeat, gained a second away win on the trot and held on to another clean sheet. There will be a stern test next week when Bracknell come to Wodson Park but Ware should be able to approach the match in good heart after this run of results.

Ware: Anthony Page, Charlie Yexley, Harry Norman, Jack Daveney, Louis Rose, Gareth Madden, Ben Hart, Leigh Rose, Brandon Adams, Albert Adu, Dave Cowley (Frazer John 75mins). Unused subs: Jordon Watson, Louis Blake, Kardan Campbell.
