League the focus for City as a Peakey blinder seals late win

Chichester City’s focus is firmly on the league as the title chasers continue to hold onto the coat tails of SCFL Premier leaders Horsham YMCA.


With close to half of the season gone, Miles Rutherford’s side have lost just three times in the league all season.


But with YM showing no sign of letting up and currently sitting five points clear, Chi know they must keep on winning if they are to keep up the pressure into the spring.


City did that last weekend although they left it late in the day to bag the victory.


After falling 2-0 down to Langney Wanderers, Chi hit back through Kaleem Haitham and Scott Jones before Ryan Peake netted with a few minutes left to seal a memorable win.


Next up for Chi in the league is a visit from struggling Shoreham tomorrow (3pm). Then there is a visit to SCFL Premier basement side Eastbourne United in the fourth round of the RUR Cup on Tuesday (7.45pm).


With Chi losing 1-0 in the third round of the Sussex Senior Cup to East Preston in midweek, Rutherford will be looking for a reaction – particularly with a trip to Horsham YMCA coming on December 15.
