Brave Chasetown FC effort fails to halt title-chasing Witton Albion

Chasetown FC made title-chasing Witton Albion work hard for their three points.

It looked like the formbook would be followed as the hosts took the lead after just nine minutes when a free kick near the byline was powerfully headed home at the far post by Rob Hopley.

But Chasetown deservedly levelled on the half-hour after a period of pressure with Liam Holt nipping in at to score.

And the visitors turned the game on its head by taking the lead after a handball inside the box allowed Jack Langston converted the penalty straight down the middle.

Witton equalised just three minutes after the interval though when Chasetown lost the ball just outside the penalty area and Karl Noon advanced and rounded keeper Curtis Pond to fire home.

Albion regained the lead midway through the half after Brad Bauress received the ball from Noon and curled it beyond Pond.

Chasetown were unlucky not to get a deserved equaliser with a Mitch Piggon header just wide in the last five minutes.
