Hall & Chester Go Down

IslandStats.com
Freddy Hall and his Chester FC teammates endured another tough outing at home to league leaders Halifax Town. The visitors took the lead through Richard Peniket in the first half before goals from Scot Boden and Matty Pearson sealed a comfortable victory for the Shaymen.

Steve Burr made just one change from the side that started the game against Braintree Town a week ago, with Michael Kay taking over the right back position and John Disney not even on the bench. It also meant that Kingsley James and John Rooney had been deemed fit to play after injury knocks picked up against Braintree.

The visitors nearly got off to the perfect start as Chester's defense was slow to react to a cross and Richard Peniket fired an effort over the bar from 12 yards out.

Moments later and Halifax got in again after Chester failed to deal with another ball into the box and Paul Marshall forced Hall into making a good save.

Chester were able to get themselves back in the game and John Rooney fired wide from 35 yards before Sean McConville's cross was just too far ahead of Iwelumo.

The impressive Jamie Jackson forced Hall into action again though, firing low from the edge of the area and the Bermuda International got down well to make the save.

After a quiet period in the middle of the first half the visitors took the lead. Chester again failed to clear a low cross into the area and the ball broke to Richard Peniket who turned home past Hall from eight yards out.

Peter Winn nearly got Chester level at the end of the first half as Peter Winn's effort was deflected just wide, from the resulting corner John Rooney fired an effort just over the bar.

Halifax Town nearly doubled their lead a minute later as Boden once again got through the Chester defense but this time Matty Brown got back and made a super challenge to put it out for a corner.

Chester were forced into a change early into the second half as Craig Mahon went off injured, leaving him in doubt for Monday's match against Kidderminster.

Just after the hour Chester had their best chance of the afternoon as Sean McConville got some space in the penalty area and fired just wide.

Halifax finally did double their lead in the 70th minute as Scot Boden managed to get some separation between himself and Matty Brown and flicked a perfectly placed header into the top corner pass Hall.

Substitute Ross Dyer nearly added a third as he flicked a corner just wide of the far post.

Halifax Town did eventually add a third as Matty Pearson raced through on goal as Michael Kay appeared to give up on the chase and Pearson slotted the ball under Hall with the goal at his mercy to complete a fairly comfortable victory for the league leaders.

Smith Scores in Kemi Kings Win

Smith & Jovovic Celebrate a Goal
IslandStats.com
Jonte Smith and his PS Kemi teammates did not stumble against middle-table opposition GBK Kokkola, as they recorded a 3-1 victory.

The match was played in challenging conditions, during the first-half the teams had to battle pouring rain. PS Kemi changed tactics and played more direct ball for men Sasa Jovovic and Smith. Both managed to keep the ball in order for their midfielder teammates to join the attack.

At times it was a challenge to play under the conditions along the ground, a change in tactics paid off and it says a lot about this current team.

Jovovic, however, was the king of the field on the day struck two goals in the 29th and 38th minutes and then created the third. The third goal in the 62nd minute was struck by Smith, who was already at the 17 goals on the season. GBK did pull a goal back in the 89th minute when Lawrence Smith scored.

Wells Scores in Huddersfield Draw

Wells Celebrates Scoring against Charlton
IslandStats.com
Nahki Wells scored in Hudderfield 1-1 Draw with Charlton Athletic at the John Smith’s Stadium in their English Championship match.

In the 50th minute Wells hit a right footed shot low through the middle from the center 6 yard and scored.

Wells believes it was a point earned against Charlton despite the late equalizer.

Igor Vetokele’s 92nd minute strike cancelled out Wells' opener after Town had battled hard with ten men during the second period.

And despite the setback, the Bermudian believes there is plenty to build on ahead of Nottingham Forest on Tuesday night.

“It feels like we have won the game even though we haven’t, there are a lot of positives that we can take from the match,” Nahki told htafc.com.

“We gave the fans something to get excited about because lately they have expected a lot and we haven’t delivered. We played excellently and had a penalty decision gone our way towards the end of the game we would have won, but as it was Charlton went up the other end and scored.

“To get a point from today’s match, having played for 45 minutes with ten men, is a positive.”

Murray Wallace was the man dismissed by referee Tim Robinson for a professional foul on Vetokele; it looked harsh at the time and Wells explained that it hit the Terriers hard.

“It was really tough to take; the timing couldn’t have been any worse,” he said. “We went in at half time knowing that we had a really tough task on our hands. However, we defended superbly and broke at every opportunity. It looked like we would win after nicking a goal, but unfortunately we could only take a point.”

Sean Scannell’s resurgent form has been a major positive during Mark Lillis' reign as Caretaker Manager and Wells is delighted to see his fellow attacker troubling the opposition.

“Everybody is backing him and I think he believes in himself. He is one of the most talented players that I have played with and on his day he is unstoppable. It is good to see him playing in the fashion that he is and I am sure that he will only continue to improve.”

The Terriers' response since the opening day 4-0 loss has been impressive and Wells puts that down to the influence of Lillis and the two Steves (Thompson and Eyre).

“It was tough to see the manager leave (Mark Robins), it is the first time in my career that it has happened. These things happen in football though, and Mark Lillis, Steve Thompson and Steve Eyre have lifted our spirits and at the moment are getting a lot out of us. They believe in us and we have responded to it.”

The match also saw Nahki’s fellow striker James Vaughan make a return from injury and he looked sharp, playing as a lone attacker.

“I can’t wait to play alongside Vaughany, hopefully it will happen soon,” explained Wells. “It is still early in the season and it is nice to see James back in action. We couldn’t have two strikers on the pitch with just ten men and he put a shift in when he came on.”
