Chasetown FC came from behind to earn a draw against Wisbech Town in a game they had the best chances to win.

If ever there was a six pointer this was it. The Scholars started the day five points clear of their visitors who prop up the table.

Chasetown started well and Will Whieldon and Danny Cocks both had efforts on the visitors goal.

Wisbech forced a save from debutant goalkeeper Ben Johnson and then Tiago Nassunculo struck the top of the Chasetown crossbar.

Just before the half time interval Whieldon struck the base of the Wisbech post and Joe Berks follow up effort was blocked by a defender on the line.

The Scholars were on the front foot at the start of the second period and Berks immediately forced a fingertip save from Muhammed Otuyo.

Chasetown had a Whieldon curling free kick punched away by Otuyo before Wisbech broke quickly and found Nassunculo who fired beyond Johnson to open the scoring against the run of play.

Midway through the half, Cocks was sent tumbling inside the box and despatched the penalty himself to level the scores.

Chasetown almost took the lead within two minutes. Liam Kirton spotted the keeper off his line and lobbed the ball just wide from long distance.

Otuyo then denied Kirton with another fingertip save over the bar as the hosts looked for a much needed winner.

It was manager Scott Dundas’ 100th league game in charge, winning 39 and drawing 21 of his fixtures at the helm.
