Chester beat a struggling Hinckley side with goals from Sarcevic, Howard and Marc Williams to stretch their win streak to 11 games. The game wasn’t the best but Chester had the edge up front with a few slick passing moves allowing Chester to go three up. Hinckley had their chances but failed to find the net. They missed an open goal after rounding the keeper, missed a penalty thanks to a fine Danby save and a header forced another fine save from the Chester shot stopper. Here are a few things that I noticed from today’s match.
1. Hinckley fans
A real credit to their club. They are in a pretty difficult situation currently (although I believe their embargo will be lifted soon) and for their fans to travel in decent numbers and cheer literally everything their players do well is impressive. They celebrated clearances and corners and it was really funny. Hope they get the club they deserve.
Dom Collins pulls out a cracking tackle and the ref gives a penalty! Frankly unbelievable decision. The ref gave a few weird decisions throughout the match but that took the biscuit.
All of them were very good little passing moves. Nice to see Marc Williams get a goal, especially as the keeper fouled him to stop him getting the second Chester goal which Howard ended up poking in. The match however was not good. Probably the most boring 3-0 win you will ever see. I suppose we have been a bit spoilt recently with a fair few decent games but this was mind numbing. Difficult to complain too much though, after all if you’ve got to score past eight players stood on their 18 yard line it is always going to be tough.
4. Keeper sub
Bit of a weird moment when their second sub saw a keeper go on at right wing. Imagine how gutted you would be if you were the outfield player getting subbed. Just shows the kind of situation Hinckley are in at the moment.
