MATCH REPORT: Nantwich Town 2 Hednesford Town 2

Nantwich Town were grateful for Simon Everall’s late equaliser, as they grabbed a point against nine man Hednesford Town.

The Dabbers took a deserved lead on 28 minutes, as Darren Moss’ ball over the top found Michael Lennon who dinked the ball over the advancing Dan Crane. The goal was Lennon’s 100th goal in a Nantwich shirt, with his celebrations earning him a booking.

Hednesford were reduced to ten men just four minutes later, as Darren Campion saw red for appearing to strike Lennon in the face following a challenge.

The visitors drew level on 67 minutes, as Chris Clements’ corner from the right was powerfully headed home at the back post by Cheyenne Dunkley.

They were then reduced to nine men just three minutes later, as Jamey Osborne was given his marching orders for a second bookable offence after a challenge on Lennon on halfway.

Hednesford continued to frustrate their hosts, and took the lead 76 minutes as Clements’ freekick was dropped by Nantwich keeper Jonny Brain; and Dunkley was again on hand to prod home from close range.

Nantwich were level five minutes later, as Zak Foster’s low cross from the left was flicked into the net at the near post by Everall.

Sean Cooke almost won it for the Dabbers late on, but his long range drive was pushed away by Crane.
