Chatham Town manager Kevin Watson takes his side back to Oakside Stadium not expecting a classic

Chats boss Kevin Watson isn’t expecting a classic on the club’s return to the Oakside Stadium.

Chatham emerged battered and bruised from a 2-2 draw at the same venue on Monday night against Barkingside.

They now return on Saturday with a game against Redbridge in Ryman League Division 1 North.

“It will be different opposition but it always seems to be a tough place to go,” said manager Watson.

“It was scrappy on Monday and we’re expecting something similar at the weekend.

“At least we know where the ground is and there will be no excuses for being late.”

Chatham were held to a 2-2 draw by Barkingside, despite twice taking the lead.

Barkingside claimed a share of the spoils after scoring a controversial injury-time equaliser.

Watson said: “I wasn’t in a position to see if the ball had gone out myself but once the crowd started shouting, the flag went up.

“We hadn’t played particularly well but we got ourselves into a winning position and then a with a bit of naivety, we gave away."
