It ends in stalemate at the ‘Villa’ as Epsom and Ewell FC travelled to Montpelier Villa FC in Brighton for their 7th away game of the season out of 10 games so far which is a remarkable statistic in itself.
Unlike Fetcham Grove Montpelier play on a 3G pitch so EEFC team would need to make some adjustments if they were to bring the 3 points home.
There were a few changes from their last victory with Josh Alder and Jubril Adamson promoted from the subs bench to start. There was no Jaevon Dyer due to sickness on the day before the match. It was good to welcome back Eldi Baze to the subs bench and Aaron Bogle returned to the centre of the defence.
The second half followed the same pattern with EEFC dominating possession but again creating very few chances. However, the best chance of the match thus far was squandered by Montpelier after a break midway through the second half. EEFC made several changes to try and break the deadlock but all to no avail, yes they had chances to score but EEFC found the Home keeper in good form so the match finished in a disappointing 0-0 draw for EEFC but a great result for Montpelier who are near the bottom of the table.
