Panthers crashed to their first defeat of the season against top of the table Chasetown FC Colts. The first half was a tense affair with neither side creating any real chances.
Chasetown took the lead after seventeen minutes following an uncharacteristic mistake from George Bailey allowing the Chasetown captain to nick the ball from out of his grasp and calmly slot home for the opening goal. (0-1).
Panthers dug deep and were back on level terms six minutes later when Thomas Williamson shot from the edge of the box to beat the Chasetown keeper, notching his 7th league goal of the season (1-1). In truth Panthers could have taken the lead when Thomas Williamson smashed a free kick off the cross bar just minutes later.
Unfortunately Panthers could not keep Chasetown at bay and conceded a sloppy second goal just before the half time break. (1-2)
The second half was a different story with Panthers dominating the possession without really creating a goal scoring chance. With ten minutes to go Panthers won a free kick on the edge of the box which again was smashed against the cross bar, the rebound fell between Kaine Garratt and Jamie Wilson but neither could convert.
Whilst Panthers continued to push forward they were caught out at the back and conceded the third with just minutes remaining. (1-3) The final result certainly did not give a true reflection on the game. If not for the woodwork then Panthers would have deservedly gained at least a draw from the match.
