CHIPPENHAM Town remain without a win on the road in National League South this season after going down 1-0 at Hampton & Richmond Borough on Bank Holiday Monday.

The opening seven games of the season have yielded nine points for the Bluebirds, although seven of those have come on home turf at Hardenhuish Park.

Danilo Orsi-Dadomo got the only goal of the game for Hampton in the first half, with an offside flag ruling out a Chippenham equaliser after the break.

Collier opted to rotate his squad given the quick turnaround from Saturday’s 1-0 win at home to Weymouth and was disappointed the Bluebirds could not follow that success up with another positive result.

“We made quite a few changes to the team due to the fact we have got a good squad so we are able to freshen it up – and playing in this heat does take a lot out of you,” said Collier.

“I am disappointed with the result as we conceded what I think is a poor goal by our standards, given the way we have been defending.

“From then on, Hampton got numbers behind the ball and made it difficult for us to break them down.

“Unfortunately, we lacked that little bit of nous to find a killer pass and get through.

“Saying that, we had a goal disallowed and their keeper made a couple of good saves.

“Did we deserve to get something from the game? Maybe a point but certainly not three.”

With three points having been picked up at home on Saturday, Collier was frustrated with the face his side were unable to add that tally in west London.

“We set ourselves high standards and I think we just fell below those on Monday,” said Collier.

“We knew one goal was always going to be enough to win the game and Hampton got it through a bit of sloppiness on our part.

“It is something for us to think about and something for us to learn from.”
