The Saints needed to get back to winning ways after a draw and defeat to rivals Hemel Hempstead Town over the festive period and they did so in fine fashion.
Kieran Monlouis and Layne Eadie got the goals as Chelmsford were beaten 2-1 at Clarence Park, pushing St Albans up to eighth and on the verge of the play-offs.
“It was really important that we bounced back from Monday’s performance (on New Year’s Day against Hemel Hempstead) and gave a rapid response,” assistant boss Lee Allinson told the club’s Youtube channel.
“We’ve got to turn the games against the teams around us into wins. We’ve matched the top sides at times like Havant & Waterlooville, Chelmsford and Hemel on Boxing Day.
“We’re a young side so we’re going to have slip-ups. We just need to pick up points against the teams around us to push for the play-offs towards the end of the season.”
