Chasetown FC pick up a point against Spalding United

Chasetown FC picked up a point against Spalding United in an entertaining encounter.

The Tulips took the lead after just four minutes after the Scholars appealed for an offside that never came and Joel Brownhill gave the visitors the lead.

But Chasetown were a whisker away from a leveller in the 22nd minute. George Cater was quickest to a loose ball and lobbed keeper Michael Duggan but saw his effort sail inches wide of the post.

An equaliser did arrive a minute later when Joe Brown crossed from the left and skipper Ryan Wynter powered a header over Duggan.

A minute before half time Cater curled in a free kick that the Spalding keeper got down to save.

Chasetown started the second half as they ended the first and Brown fired a foot over the bar with a 20 yard shot.

The home side continued to dominate and Jack Langston twice tried his luck to provide the breakthrough.

But against the run of play, United regained their lead with their first attack of the second half. George Zuerner slid the ball through to Kegan Everington to net.

The home side were immediately back on level terms. Substitute Danny Cocks twisted and turned in the penalty area and shot past Duggan deflected into his own net by Taron Hare.

Chasetown felt they should have had a penalty into the final five minutes. Levi Reid motored past the Tulips left back and tumbled under the challenge, but the referee deemed the tussle a fair one.

In a dramatic final passage of play, Langston twice saw shots blocked, as did Cocks in a flurry of efforts that somehow the visitors kept out.
