Chasetown turn around in dramatic style

The Scholars came from 0-2 down to win 3-2 in Wisbech.

Chasetown came from behind to win a much needed three points against fellow strugglers Wisbech Town.

It was Chasetown's first visit to Wisbech since a 2002 FA Vase tie at the hosts previous ground but it was the home side who took the lead with their first attempt at goal. The Scholars lost possession cheaply and Georgito Mulonda gave the hosts the lead.

A defensive error gifted the Cambridgeshire side a second goal. A missed clearance gave Danny Draper a clear run on goal and he finished confidently.

Within two minutes of the restart, Chasetown gave themselves a lifeline when a cross from the right was met by Jack Langston who side footed home from 8 yards.

Two minutes later, the game was turned right on its head as Joe Brown tapped home the equaliser.

Dramatically, Chasetown went ahead in the 72nd minute. George Cater chipped the ball to the far post and Kieran Brown bundled the ball over the line.

Langston almost doubled the advantage when keeper Sam Wilson spilled an effort from Kieran Brown but then redeemed himself finger tipping Langston's shot onto the crossbar.
