Cheddar moved up to second spot in the league after securing two 1-0 wins in a week.
Almondsbury UWE 0
A second 1-0 win in the space of five days secured a big three points for Cheddar at Bowdens Park against a well-organised Almondsbury side.
In a generally uneventful first 45 minutes, honours were even at the break although the Cheesemen could not finish off fine deliveries from Craig Mawford and Chris Coombs which caused havoc in the visitors defence.

Cheddar’s defence look solid and was well marshalled by twin centre backs, Danny Griffiths and Sam King, while keeper Mike Dangerfield was reliable.
Cheddar reorganised themselves after the break, but still found it difficult to break down a resilient Almondsbury side.

After 51 minutes, Tom Manning’s 40-yard pass found Adam Jones, whose shot skimmed the upright.
Manager Jared Greenhalgh, brought on Callum Ham on 70 minutes and within a minute Cheddar were in front, Ham linking with Mawford, and from his cross, Adam Jones dived low to send a strong header into the net.
Jones could have added to his tally on 75 minutes, but his shot on the turn from 18 yards was deflected for a corner, as Cheddar held on comfortable for the victory.
Cheddar were in midweek action last week at Bowdens Park against Portishead Town.
The match ended with a 1-0 victory for the Cheesemen, the winner coming from Adam Jones in the 78th minute.
The Cheesemen climbed to second place in the league and have another home league match against Hengrove Athletic on Saturday (3pm), before they face three consecutive away games.
