CHIPPENHAM Town moved into the play-off places in National League South with a 2-0 win over Dulwich Hamlet at the weekend.

A pair of headed goals from Chris Zebroski and Brad Ash - one in each half - saw Mike Cook’s men record their first win over Dulwich in seven attempts and continue a fine start to the new season.

In a frenetic start to the game, Adam Mann and Ross Stearn saw early half-chances snuffed out for Chippenham while Korrey Henry snatched at an opportunity for Dulwich down the other end.

With still only five minutes on the clock, Stearn curled a free-kick wide.

The next good chance fell to the hosts’ Lewis White, whose shot from out wide was saved by Will Puddy in the 17th minute.

Chippenham were next to go close after Mann’s shot was turned behind by Dulwich ‘keeper Charlie Grainger.

Ryan Brunt was substituted in the 33rd minute due to an injury, but within a minute of coming on, replacement Zebroski superbly head home Kieran Parselle’s deep cross with his first touch.

The Bluebirds almost doubled their lead six minutes before the break after a Stearn free-kick had to be pushed wide by Grainger.

Chippenham were again first to show after the break as a Stearn free-kick was headed wide by Zebroski.

Never out of the game for long, another one of Stearn’s free-kicks was headed home by Brad Ash to double Chippenham’s lead.

Dulwich immediately made two attacking substitutions, and one of those replacements, Reise Alassani saw his shot deflected wide.

Kieran Parselle perhaps should have made it three in the 63rd minute when arriving unmarked at the back post from a corner.

However, the Bluebirds’ captain headed wide from close range.

Chippenham continued to dominate the chances as Stearn and Zebroski both went close midway through the second half.

The visitors felt they should have had a penalty late on when Zebroski’s shot appeared to hit Jesse Debra’s hand, however, appeals for a penalty were in vain.

Dulwich had their best chance of the match as time expired, but former Sunderland player Ruben Sammut saw his flicked header saved by Will Puddy.
