Cheadle Town 3-4 Sandbach United

And all for five of your English pounds sterling.

If you were a neutral attending Park Road for this one, then we hope you enjoyed it. Seven goals, two of them in the "own" category and the winning team netting in the 90th minute.

As you can tell from the scoreline that team wasn't us. When we look at the statistics at the end of the season they will tell us that we have scored most goals in the last 15 minutes of matches but also conceded the most in that period, too. The most irritating of habits.

The goalfest got going in the 10th minute as Sandbach's Jordan Davies was put clear on the right before drawing Danny Whiting out of his goal, rounding him and rolling home for an easy finish.

We then had to reshuffle the pack soon after wards as Danny Wood's injury sustained vs Holker came back to haunt him, with Will Holt taking his place in midfield.

As we approached the half hour, a couple of chances for us.

Jake Ambrose raced through on the left before firing across the goalmouth before Rick Whyatt then had a close-range effort chalked off.

Our equaliser came on 31 minutes. Joe Nield hooking the ball back across the face of goal, causing enough havoc in the area for a Sandbach defender to bundle home into this own net from close range.

On 41 minutes we took the lead. After Chris Sherrington had whistled a free-kick just over the crossbar moments before, Jake Ambrose scampered down the left and kept a cool head to finish neatly inside the far post.

Three minutes into the second half, the lead had gone.

A ball in from the right found Sandbach's Chris Smith and he was given two attempts to stab it home from close range.

The next significant action came on the hour mark and saw the visitors retake the lead. A stray pass was seized upon giving Sandbach the chance to break. All of a sudden it was three versus one, with the ball shifted to the left for James Kirby to finish.

The tide then swung back the other way, resulting in us drawing level once more on 77 minutes.

Tom Ratican was sent chasing a ball down the right and, under pressure from Tom, the attending Sandbach defender planted the ball inch-perfect past his own keeper who had come out to assist.

Joe Shaw then got onto the end of a cross a few yards out from goal but the ball just wouldn't sit for him before a Tom Ratican cross from the right by a meaty shot from Liam Delaney that was excellently saved by the keeper.

Unfortunately there was still time for the match to swing once more and on the 90th minute, from their own throw-in on the left, Sandbach raced through on the left and poked home for a win that will do their pre-playoff confidence the world of good.

From having around a dozen matches left to play, in the blink of an eye we're down to the final waltz this weekend....
