Chasetown FC record welcome victory at Peterborough Sports

Chasetown FC held on for a welcome victory on the road at Peterborough Sports.

The Scholars started brightly and a Jake Lovatt header was flicked just wide in the opening minutes.

Curtis Pond then made two saves to keep it goalless before the visitors deservedly took the lead in the 22nd minute. Lovatt’s first effort was saved by Dan George but from a tight angle he followed up to smash an unstoppable right footer into the back of the net.

Four minutes before half time, home skipper Lewis Webb volleyed from long distance but Pond was equal to it.

Danny Cocks sprinted towards the penalty area in the 55th minute and was brought down. The referee pointed to the spot and Jack Langston sent Webb the wrong way to double Chasetown’s lead.

The Scholars stretched their advantage further in the 65th minute when Ryan Wynter assisted Lovatt who clinically placed it beyond George for his second.

Sports scored a controversial goal to reduce the deficit. The referee overruled his assistant who was flagging for offside to allow Mark Jones to fire from close range.

Peterborough pulled another one back when the ball found its way to Avelino Vieira who gave the hosts some hope from close range, but Chasetown held on for victory.
