Chasetown FC seal victory with second half comeback at Loughborough Dynamo

Chasetown FC staged a remarkable second half comeback to gain all three points at Loughborough Dynamo.

The hosts took the lead after eight minutes when Leandro Browne’s effort at the near post deflected past keeper John Bateman.

Chasetown twice went close to levelling. First, Simon Brown’s free kick was missed by keeper James Martin but Ryan Wynter was unable to stretch to head into an empty net. Then, Paul Sullivan fired a low drive that Martin dived low to his left to save.

Dynamo doubled their lead when Browne went tumbling inside the box and Bamoussa Cisse fired the penalty into the roof of the net.

Sullivan tested Martin with a free kick from 25 yards and Wynter forced a save from the Dynamo keeper as headed on target.

Chasetown reduced the deficit when Mike Williams was fouled by Alvin Jarvis and Simon Brown confidently despatched the resultant penalty kick.

Sullivan levelled with a crisp finish from a superb through ball from James Dance.

The Scholars wasted a great chance to take the lead when Nicholas Turton was held back by Danny Brain but this time Brown blazed his spot kick over the crossbar.

Brown almost redeemed himself with a ferocious right footer that was inches wide of the angle of post and bar with Martin well beaten.

In the final minute of normal time, Jono Gould delivered a ball into the six yard box and George Washbourne calmly slotted the ball home with his left foot.
