MATCH REPORT: Carlton Town 2 – 4 Chasetown


Chasetown took the spoils in a match that was only ever going to the away side, writes Josh Hodgson.

Chasetown started well and were rewarded in the 8th minute when James O Reilly met the end of William Wheildon’s cross to put them a goal to the good.

Jacob Lovatt went close straight after, Jack Steggles making two brilliant saves for Carlton. The Millers found a way back into the game when Danny Gordon was bought down in the area, and Ben Hutchinson slotted home the penalty.

Wheildon responded straight after on the counter, restoring the lead with a shot into the corner post and rebounding in. Muzzy Nduna made it 3-1 just before half time, confusion between the Carlton keeper and defender Jake Carlisle gifting the away side an opportunity.

Yet again Carlton came back, beginning the second half well, Aaron Hooton drawing a second penalty and slotting home comfortably. Jacob Lovett was instrumental throughout for Chasetown and gave them their final goal to seal their points.

Another lapse in concentration allowed Lovett through and Steggles was unable to stop a powerful drive. The scoreline may sound exciting, but only Chasetown looked like taking the three points.

Entertainment factor: 4/5

MOTM: Jacob Lovett
