Chester v Forest Green

The Blues will face Forest Green in round two after they beat Truro City 1-0 after extra time. Tie to be played on Saturday, January 14.

Phew

Drama doesn’t quite cover it. That was the craziest game of football I’ve ever seen. Three red cards, three goals, two penalties, bookings galore, a coach sent to the stands, a last minute winner. Bonkers.

Extra time at Truro

Full time: Chester 2 Witton 1

That was nuts.

Wilson in the book now

Witton defender sees yellow

Should have been it

Alabi had a chance to set Chapell free but tries to go it alone.

Wow

A long ball over the top and Durrell races on to it, nipping past the keeper before slotting home.

GOAL! Chester 2 Witton 1

DURRELL!!!!

Added time

Four minutes

Off the bar

Chapell crashes a Lloyd cross against the bar. Alabi can’t follow up.

This is insane

Alabi fires home the penalty - just. Witton have NINE men, Chester have TEN and we look set for extra time. This is bonkers.

GOAL! Chester 1 Witton 1

Alabi pen - 88 minutes

Penalty Chester! And another red

Devine sees red

Booked

Witton keeper Danny Roberts shown a yellow for time wasting.

Should be level

Lloyd misses a gilt-edged chance to tie things up.

Another sending off

Witton coach Paul Moore sent to the stands

Disallowed

Witton thought they had won it when Bauress’ free kick from the touchline finds the net. Disallowed for a foul, apparently.

Booked. Ryan Lloyd

Booked for a nothing challenge. This ref is clueless.

Red card: Chester down to 10 men

Blaine Hudson shown a second yellow.

Saved

Hughes rises to meet a Chapell free kick but heads at Roberts. Still 1-0 Witton.

Desperate times

Hard to see where a Chester goal is coming from here. Ten-man Witton sticking to their guns and no incision from the Blues.

Almost!

Hughes almost bundled in a leveller but Wilson denies him. Corner.

Witton sitting deep

They are just inviting pressure and the Blues can’t crack them. Hard to see where a goal is coming from.

Hughes up front

Sam Hughes has gone up front next to Alabi

Fired wide

Chapell hits another low effort just past Roberts’s post.

Dragged wide

Chapell’s 25-yard effort trickles harmlessly wide.

Double change

Lloyd and Shaw on for George and Waters. 62 mins

Chester pressure

A couple of corners in quick succession here.

Double change imminent

Shaw and Lloyd getting ready.

Saved

Bauress hits a tame free kick at Lynch from 20 yards.
