Scholars off and running
Chasetown picked up their first point of the season but could easily have had all three.
Chasetown made a positive start and inside 2 minutes, Jordan Flattley rattled the crossbar from 25 yards with Dave Parton beaten.
The visitors had a goal harshly disallowed when Jake Lovatt out muscled the defender and fired home, only for the referee to adjudge Lovatt had committed a foul.
On the stroke of half time Kidsgrove almost snatched an undeserved lead with a cheeky back heel from Tim Sanders which was blocked on the line by Curtis Pond.
Eventually The Scholars patience paid off and Muzzy Nduna volleyed Chasetown ahead from a right wing free kick just after the hour mark.
Chasetown should have extended the lead in the 70th minute. George Cater robbed the back four and fed Grant Ryan. He unselfishly teed up Will Whieldon who fired inches wide of the upright.
Kidsgrove levelled the score late on against the run of play with a long range effort from Lee Cropper that flew in off the post.
