Chigs out of title race, says Slater
|1 - 1|

Wadham Road, Wathamstow E17
Chigwell and Woodford drew for the second consecutive week in a game of late goals.
Chigwell dominated possession in first half, but Woodford defended well and a number of saves from deputising goalkeeper Elliott Gold prevented them from being two or three down at the break.
Woodford changed their tactics in the second half and came out fighting. Chigwell didn’t know what hit them with a number of misses in front of goal from the Wanderers.
Richard Baum broke the deadlock six minutes from time, but with Chigwell still celebrating, Woodford levelled straight from the restart from Harrison Midda.
Chigwell player-manager Richard Slater told JC Sport: "We didn't take our chances first half and we poor in the second.
"Even this early on, I think we are out of the title chase."
Woodford joint-manager Ben Rosenthal told JC Sport: "Our results this season haven’t complemented our performances so far. Our international break to Spain did not help our rhythm, but I expect in the near future we will climb up the table."
