Chasetown FC run without a league win stretches to eight games after defeat at Colwyn Bay

Chasetown FC’s miserable season continued as they went down 4-2 at Colwyn Bay.

The Scholars now find themselves level on points with Skelmersdale United at the foot of the table after a run of eight league games without a win.

The visitors started well but the first real chance came in the 40th minute when Muzzy Nduna forced a save from Andy Coughlin at his near post.

They were hit with a sucker punch two minutes later wehn Colwyn took the lead. Craig Pritchard nipped through the visitors defence and fired home at the second attempt.

Chasetown went close to an equaliser in the final minute of the half with a Callum Cockerill-Mollett header narrowly over the crossbar.

Danny Cocks was then a whisker away from an equaliser with a curling effort inches wide of the post.

The equaliser finally came when Will Whieldon’s corner was headed goalwards by Cockerill-Mollett and through the legs of Coughlin.

Whieldon turned provider again with a peach of a cross from the right and an even better diving header from Nduna to put the Scholars ahead.

The lead didn’t last though as Bay were awarded a spot kick with 70 minutes on the clock and Josh Brizzell made no mistake from the spot.

The topsy-turvy nature of the game continued and the Welshmen regained the lead with Lassana Mendes drawing keeper Curtis Pond and firing home.

Colwyn regained their composure and added a fourth goal as Ashley Woods slid home another for the hosts.
