Chasetown FC see play-off hopes hit by defeat at Lincoln United

Chasetown FC had a night to forget as their play-off hopes were dented at Lincoln United.

The game was delayed by over half-an-hour after the Chasetown team were delayed by traffic on the A38.

But when things did get going, the visitors started brightly with skipper Jack Langston striking the Lincoln crossbar early on before forcing a save from Michael Emery.

The hosts took the lead with a penalty just after the half hour. A hopeful ball forward was adjudged to have been handled by a defender and Paul Grimes converted the spot kick.

On the stroke of half-time, Danny Cocks drew a foul and earned Chasetown a penalty of their own which Langston converted with style.

But midway through the second half, United regained the lead as Kallum Smith cut in and curled the ball beyond Pond.

Lincoln sealed the points when Sean Wright netted from a header.
