Midfielder Ben Jevons has paid tribute to hat-trick hero Dean Perrow ahead of Chasetown FC’s game at Matlock Town.

The Scholars travel to Derbyshire tonight (September 28) on the back of a 5-0 victory against Bradford Park Avenue – a result set up by Perrow’s first half treble.

And Jevons – who also got his name on the scoresheet – hopes Perrow can continue to get amongst the goals.

He said:

“Dean Perrow is one of those players who comes alive in the box. The boy only needs a half chance to score a goal, he is a natural finisher and long may his little scoring run continue.”

Charlie Blakemore’s men returned to winning ways after going into the game on the back of a 2-2 draw with Colwyn Bay and a 2-0 reverse at Worksop Town.

But Chasetown have made a habit of preventing a slump from forming this season and Jevons believes the fighting spirit will be key to the Scholars’ fortunes over the course of the season.

The midfielder explained:

“Bouncebackability is great to have in a team and we have showed it this week. We managed to go from not scoring for two games to come back with seven in two and that’s always good.

“We just need to keep the the spirit we have – if we do that we won’t do to badly this year!”

Jevons himself has enjoyed a strong start to the season after adding his goal against Bradford to efforts in the clashes with Halifax Town and Ashton United.

And while the result is first and foremost in his mind, the midfield man admits it’s nice to be among the goals. He added:

“It’s always good to be on the scoresheet and things are just falling for me at the minute. I just have to keep putting the chances away when they come my way.”

But The Scholars won’t have it easy if they want to make it two wins in two this evening. Their opponents currently lie sixth in the Evo-Stik League Premier Division, a point ahead of Chasetown, but with two games in hand.

They also come into the game on the back of a 1-0 FA Cup win against Carlton Town.

However, a Chasetown win could see the join the division’s pace-setters in the knowledge that they have already faced a number of the sides in the top half – and have yet to face any of the clubs in the bottom nine teams in the table.

New signing Danny Edwards will be pushing for a starting berth after making his debut for the Scholars against Bradford Park Avenue, while Jon Richardson could keep his place in defence as Jack Farmer and Matty Cohen remain doubts because of injury.

Chasetown’s game at Matlock Town kicks off at 7.45pm.
