    DANNY CARO'S DIVISION 1 TEAM OF THE WEEK

    FORTUNE FRUSTRATE CHIGWELL
    CHIGWELL ATHLETIC 1 TEMPLE FORTUNE A 1
    An 82nd minute equaliser from Jon Fisher dented Chigwell's title hopes as the east Londoners were forced to settle for a point at Peter May.

    Dan Castle had put the Chigs ahead a minute before half time but they were denied three points when a cross-shot from Fisher flew in off the far post.

    Both teams finished the game with 10 men. After Chigwell had substitute Richard Klien player sent off, Fortune pushed for the winner and and felt they deserved a penalty when Paul Walker was fouled in the box, but the referee deemed it a dive and booked him - which was his second yellow.
