A stoppage time strike from Ollie Chamberlain earnt the Peacocks a 3-3 draw at Chippenham Town in a Vanarama National League South humdinger this evening.
In an action packed game, Town found themselves trailing 2-0 inside 20 minutes. A Nat Williams strike took a wicked deflection to wrongfoot Dan Lavercombe after 8 minutes and ten minutes later Owen Windsor waltzed through the visitors’ defence and his shot from a tight angle was helped into the net by Chamberlain.
Chippenham were reduced to ten men just before the half hour when Freddie Grant received two yellow cards in rapid succession and this swung the game the Peacocks’ way. Nat Jarvis reduced the arrears six minutes into the second half when he headed home following an Austen Booth cross but despite dominating possession Town could not capitalise and looked to have paid the price when Luke Spokes produced a corker into the top corner to give Chippenham a 3-1 lead with five minutes left. The Peacocks responded in a thrilling finale. Ross Stearn rounded Will Henry to pull one back on 86 minutes before Nick McCootie knocked down Cameron Evans’ cross and Chamberlain drilled a beauty past Henry five minutes into stoppage time to send the travelling fans into raptures.
