Chelmsford City v Braintree Town - Match Report - New Year's Day 2024

01/01/2024 About 1 minute
The Clarets have started 2024 with a bang! The Clarets hosted Braintree Town at Melbourne Stadium, Chelmsford on New Year's day.

For the second time in a week The Clarets beat Braintree Town -- with a convincing 3-0 win, in front of a 1,540 crowd.

The Clarets first goal came from a Ruff cross, put into the net by Watts.

Shortly after the opening goal Winfield was handed a straight red card. The clash didn't look like it deserved a red card.

For The Clarets second, Jenkins headed onto the post and Ruff bundled it into the net.

After half-time The Clarets continued to press and, after Francis is pulled to the ground inside the box, the referee awarded a penalty. Samir Carruthers converted from the penalty spot.

Today's result also extends The Clarets unbeaten run over Braintree Town to 12 league matches.

Play was temporarily paused after Braintree fans threw two flares on to the pitch.
