Cheshunt 0, Lowestoft 3
Lowestoft bounced back from Saturday's home defeat to Ilford with a comfortable three goal victory over Cheshunt last night.
The home side had an early chance when Chris Meikle raced through but his shot hit the outside of the post.
But from that point on Lowestoft started to get on top, taking a deserved lead in the 24th minute. Darren Williams mis-kicked his clearance and Gary McGee pounced to shoot home from ten yards.

The Blues continued to press and added a second goal in the 44th minute. McGee made good ground down the left and when goalkeeper Stuart Pack fumbled the ball Ross King was on hand to tap in from two yards out.
McGee had a second goal disallowed two minutes into the second half for a harsh offside decision. But Lowestoft continued to look the better side and added a third goal in the 64th minute.
