Pond injured as Chasetown's cup run ends
Curtis Pond suffered a suspected broken rib in Monday night's league cup defeat.
The Scholars almost made the dream start as a fortuitous touch off Ryan Wynter on the edge of the area span up over goalkeeper Jake Wood and off the Basford crossbar.
Chasetown lost goalkeeper Curtis Pond due to a rib injury in a collision with his own player.
Basford then capitalised on striker Mitch Piggon going in goal taking the lead in the 45th minute with a goal from Fabian Smith.
In the third minute of five minutes plus of injury time Jack Langston levelled with a pile driver free kick from the edge of the box.
Piggon made a stunning save to deny Kieran Wells but then Wells gave the hosts the lead with a looping header over Piggon.
Just after the hour Basford extended their lead with a good passing movement and Callum Smith fired beyond the grasp of Piggon.
Chasetown were reduced to ten men with Mike Williams sent off for two bookable offences.
In the 90th minute, Wells added his second with a cool finish with the visiting defence exposed.
