Chasetown FC end losing streak with draw against Glossop North End

Chasetown FC ended a five-match losing streak with a home draw against Glossop North End – but will be left ruing not taking a maximum haul from the game.

The hosts made a positive start and had an effort cleared off the line in the 26th minute. Will Whieldon swung in a corner and Ryan Wynter’s goal-bound header was cleared with the rebound from Callum Cockerill-Mollett headed over by Ian Bennett.

It was another corner that lead to Chasetown’s opening goal. Whieldon delivered right footed and Matt Gardner powered a header beyond Russell Saunders.

Chasetown almost added a second near the start of the second half. Gardner and George Cater combined but Saunders saved at the winger’s feet.

The hosts did double their lead when Gardner’s shot came back off the post and Cater bundled the rebound over the line despite protestations from the visitors that the ball hadn’t crossed the line.

Glossop pulled one back five minutes from time with a goal from Matthew Russell and then were awarded a spot kick a minute later.

Against the run of play Russell converted the penalty sending Curtis Pond the wrong way.
