Scholars beaten at home again

A first half goal separated the sides as 2020 kicked off at The Scholars Ground.

Chasetown started brightly and had two early chances. Ryan Wynter tested goalkeeper Jason Alexander with a low shot and then George Cater had Alexander reaching high.

Dynamo took the lead after 26 minutes with their first chance. A through ball was missed by the defender and Max Bardsley-Rowe saw his first shot saved but managed to net the rebound.

Liam Kirton forced a finger tip save from Alexander as Chasetown were a whisker away from levelling just before half time.

Chasetown had the better of the ball possession at the start of the second half but neither side could register a serious attempt at goal in the first 25 minutes of the second period.

The Scholars huffed and puffed and in the 80th minute, Kirton's cross to the far post found the head of Alex Curtis but he looped it straight into the grateful hands of the Loughborough number 1.

In injury time, Jack Langston whipped in a near post ball and Mike O’Reilly was agonisingly wide of a last gasp equaliser.

The biggest plus for Chasetown was the return of Oli Hayward - with 90 minutes under his belt - his first start since August 2018 when he suffered a broken leg.
