Failing to take chances and switching off at a corner ended Welling United’s four game unbeaten run.

Visitors Chippenham Town took full advantage and claimed the three points.

Starting quickly, Welling had an early chance when Ryan Blackman split the defence to put Dipo Akinyemi behind but although he shot past goalkeeper Will Puddy, it also went beyond the far post.

Luke Russe fired out of the ground for Chippenham and Anthony Cook did likewise at the other end from a free kick.

Lyle Della-Verde tried his luck from twenty-five yards but Puddy made a comfortable save then Marlon Jackson twice came close with a shot deflected wide and then another which again took a deflection before clipping the bar on the way over.

Just before the break Della-Verde spun and shot but it went just wide with Puddy struggling.

Immediately after the interval, Akinyemi used his guile and strength to make space for himself but could only shoot straight at Puddy who saved comfortably.

Further good hold up play by Akinyemi created space for Ade Shokunbi to surge through but Puddy made a brilliant save to keep it out.

Callum Gunner then came close for Chippenham but his shot flew back off the crossbar before Brad Ash drew a save out of Nathan Harness.

By this stage, the visitors were on top and went ahead when Joe Hanks found Ash at the near post from a corner and he made no mistake from close range.

Harness made a smart save with his feet to thwart Chris Zebroski and he then parried a Hanks shot out to Ash but his first time effort went wide.

Substitute Matt Everitt tried a chip from twenty yards but Puddy saved and all three points were destined to go to Wiltshire.
