What this friendly between Chasetown FC and Hednesford Town lacked in goals it made up for in good quality midfield play.

The best chances fell just before half-time at either end.

First, Chasetown’s Nkosi Mzungwana mishit a cross that saw goalkeeper Liam Haynes scurry back to tip over the crossbar.

Then, with literally the last touches of the half, Curtis Pond made a superb low save to deny the visitors, with there not even being time to take the resultant corner.

In front of a crowd of 308, Chasetown fans got their first glance at new captain Spencer Gunnell and vice-captain Jimmy O’Neill in the same starting line-up, en route to Chasetown’s first clean sheet of pre-season.
