STUNNER HAS BLUES OVER THE MOON-EY
BRACKLEY TOWN 2 CHESTER 2
CHESTER got out of jail with Dan Mooney’s wonder strike deep in added time to leave with a point few would argue the performance had warranted.
A tight first half of few chances saw the home side go close in just the second minute as Lee Ndlovu’s shot was well saved at full stretch by Grant Shelton. The goal-less first period gave way to a lively second half as three goals in nine minutes heralded a pulsating final half hour.
Connor Franklin fired Brackley into the lead on 50 minutes after Grant Shenton saved well from Ndlovu’s header. But Chester levelled as Mooney struck a fierce effort from 20 yards beyond Danny Lewis’ despairing dive.
On 59 minutes Saints were in front again. Matt Lowe’s mazy run found Shane Byrne who coolly finished the move for the midfielder’s third goal of the week.
Brackley had fine chances to extend the lead as Byrne and then Jimmy Armson were off target when well placed before an explosive finish to the match.
In the fourth minute of added time Mooney swivelled on the edge of the penalty area to hit the volley cleanly, his shot dipping under the crossbar to the delight of Chester supporters who headed home with a point that had seemed out of reach.
