Chopbacks victory puts them back on top

South Coast Athletico – 3

SC Pass & Move – 1

Next up in the league for the Chopbacks was to play host to SC Pass & Move with the home side looking to go back to the top of the table with a victory.

The game started explosively with Dan Aldous heading home a Brad Owens corner after just two minutes of play.

The game became a bit scrappy after that with occasional chances here and then but the Chopbacks seemed to take their foot of the gas.

In the 31st minute they were punished when a SC Pass & Move free kick was cleared only to be struck in for the equaliser wrong footing Ben Tate.

For ten minutes afterwards their were bookings given to Lee FinniganSyd Moffat-Bailey and Dan Aldous in what proved to be a scrappy end to the half.

The second half started the way the first did with Eduard Czeller carving out space for himself on the edge of the box before striking home to put the Chopbacks back in to the lead.

The Chopbacks pushed for a third to seal the game and were rewarded on the 67th minute mark when Connor Easton managed to put through Eduard Czeller one on one with the keeper which he dispatched making it 3-1.

Owens went down near the end of the game holding his knee and needed to come off with what is feared to be a recurrence of his previous ACL injury, the team will have to wait for scans to reveal the extend of his injury.

The game finished 3-1 and the Chopbacks go top by three points and now have a bigger target on their backs.

Next up is Sedlescombe Rangers II in the Robertsbridge Cup.

Man of the Match was Eduard Czeller.
