Hednesford Town 2-1 Chorley 17/01/2015

Saturday January 17th, 3pm

Chorley came away from the midlands pointless after toiling for a shift against the Pitmen from Hednesford Town.

After Chris Simm capitalised on a defensive mistake in the eighth minute, two goals from Marvin Robinson in the next five minutes reversed the score and won the game for the home side.

To add salt to the wound, defender Tom Smyth was stretched from the action just before the interval leaving are already stretched defence threadbare.

Simm opening the scoring when home keeper Dan Crane mistimed his kick and the ball bounced past him and Simmo slotted into an empty net.

They say in football you are never more vulnerable than when you have just scored, and this was certainly the case as the home side restarted the game, attached down their right flank and Robinson converted a James Hurst cross from close range.

Four minutes later the third goal, Robinson’s seconds, was scored, this time the striker found himself in acres of space on the edge of the area and he calmly picked out the far corner while unchallenged.

So, 13 minutes gone and all the goals have been scored!

The highlights of the remainder of the game where two great saves by Sam Ashton (though one was flagged for offside) and Simmo shooting wide.

For the remainder of the game the pattern of play was more or less the same; it was a case of the home side defending in numbers and doing it well while looking dangerous on the break, while the Magpies pressed forward but could not find a way through the home side and the keeper remained largely underworked.
