Controversial injury time goal denies Chasetown end of season 3 points

A goal deep into an incredibly long period of stoppage time denied Chasetown the three points.

Chasetown rang the changes ahead of their cup final on Wednesday and went behind within the first ten minutes when Evan Garnett whipped the ball across to Ruben Wiggins-Thomas who tapped in from close range.

The Scholars levelled in the 34th minute when a cross was chipped up by Ryan Wynter and Matt Gardner headed home from 6 yards for his first goal for the club.

Gardner made a dream start to the second half. Peter Till crossed for Gardner whose looped header evaded goalkeeper Mark Rathbone.

The visitors extended their lead in the 65th minute with a phenomenal long range effort from Jack Langston that left Rathbone clutching at thin air.

Belper reduced the deficit with a Jonathan Williams shot which crawled along the ground through a sea of legs leaving Curtis Pond only able to watch on.

Michael Wright almost added a fourth in stoppage time but Rathbone stretched out a leg to kick away at his near post.

Belper equalised in the sixth minute of stoppage time with Wiggins-Thomas netting a controversial late equaliser with everyone questioning the amount of stoppage time.
