Chasetown FC score three to secure victory at Market Drayton Town

Chasetown FC enjoyed a successful trip to Market Drayton Town as they returned with a victory and three goals under their belt.

The visitors made a positive start and Danny Cocks and Ryan Wynter both created early chances, while leading scorer Muzzy Nduna fired beyond keeper Oleksandr Ilchenko only to see JJ Melligan clear off the line.

Market Drayton came back into the game and Curtis Pond had to be at his best to deny Javier Roberts.

Chasetown reasserted themselves and Ilchenko punched a Cocks effort over the bar. From the resulting corner, Nduna was superbly denied by Ilchenko and then Cocks had his effort cleared off the line by Darious Darkin.

But the visitors’ patience eventually paid off in the 40th minute, as Jordan Flattley superbly broke up play to feed Ryan Wynter and his cross found skipper Jack Langston who drove the ball home.

Two minutes later Nduna won the ball and fed Will Whieldon who smashed the ball past Ilchenko from outside the area to double the advantage.

Whieldon had an effort cleared off the line by substitute Jean Kalenda before Chasetown extended their lead just before the hour with trickery from Cocks allowing Nduna to head home at the near post.

Drayton defender Bradley Maslen-Jones denied Jake Lovatt with a last ditch tackle before Lovatt struck the crossbar as Chasetown went in search of a fourth.

But the hosts did score a consolation goal with the last kick of the game through Ryan Seal.
