The Scholars started well and had two early chances for Jake Lovatt – one blocked by a defender and a header just wide.

But it was Sheffield who took the lead against the run of play though as they opened up the defence out wide and Mohammed Ibrahim netted from close range.

The visitors were playing well on the counter attack but Chasetown continued to force chances and keeper Brett Souter twice saved Lovatt shots on target.

In first half stoppage time Sheffield doubled their lead with a Jack Browell free kick that flew in off the crossbar.

The Yorkshiremen made it three – and looked to have secured the win – when a great run from Lewis Price fed former Scholar Joel Purkiss who toe poked it home.

But out of nothing Chasetown got a goal back when Chris Baker rose at the far post and Muzzy Nduna netted from close range.

Within a minute The Scholars were right back in the game, sub Ryan Wynter forced a save from Souter and George Cater netted the rebound from an almost impossible angle.

The Scholars completed a dramatic comeback when Cater whipped in a delightful cross and Lovatt slid in to level the scores.

But the drama wasn’t finished there as, in stoppage time, Lovatt was fouled on the edge of the box and Josh Sedgley drilled the free kick home to win a dramatic game for the Scholars.
