Chasetown FC see unbeaten run ended by Trafford

Chasetown FC’s recent unbeaten run came to an end – although two of the three goals they conceded at Trafford were tinged with controversy.

The hosts took the lead after 18 minutes. Matty Bryan appeared to be offside as he broke through and fired beyond Curtis Pond, but the linesman’s flag stayed down.

Pond then made a stunning save to keep it 1-0 midway through the half.

Trafford made it 2-0 when Chasetown failed to deal with a free kick and Jimmy Moore stabbed home from six yards despite the visitors appealing for handball against the goalscorer. 

The Scholars were a whisker away from reducing the deficit when Niall Flint shot from long range and Elliot Wynne palmed the ball wide for a corner.

It then took a great tackle from Keil O’Brien to deny Chasetown substitute Liam Kirton.

The visitors forced the Manchester side back in the second half but the hard work was undone with a goal on the counter attack with substitute Liam Ellis drilling home for 3-0 five minutes from time.
