Chasetown FC booked their place in the next round of the Walsall Senior Cup with a two-goal victory at Sutton Coldfield Town.
Just before half-time, a brilliant run from Matt Curley linked up with Seb Lake-Gaskin and it looked like Curley had been tripped inside the box. But the referee awarded only a free kick which Simon Brown hit into the wall.
Chasetown started the second half brightest and Rhys Thompson’s free kick ricocheted off the defensive wall and inches wide of the post.
Another Chase free kick on the edge this time saw Nathan Rooney’s effort brilliantly pushed aside by James Wren.
The Scholars finally broke the deadlock in the 81st minute. Substitute Mitch Piggon diverted the ball into the path of James Dance who drilled it beyond Wren.
Chasetown deservedly clinched the tie with a second Piggon assist as Pierce Kiembi netted his first ever goal.
