Ten man Kendal Town suffered a frustrating 1-0 defeat to relegation rivals Chasetown at The ST and B Accountants Stadium.

Kendal paid the price for missed opportunities in front of goal while Kendal played the second half with ten men after Brad Carroll was sent off for an adjudged hand ball in the closing stages of the first half.

However Chasetown picked up the win after George Carter scored on 70 minutes and despite Kendals best efforts the visitors held onto secure the points.

Kendal made an imposing start to the game and created chances through Steve Yawson who saw his shot blocked while Billy Akrigg’s powerful strike on goal rebounded off the post.

The Mintcakes played with intensity and pace while Chasetown defended well and cleared away the danger.

Kendal continued to create opportunities most notably through Kyle Sambor who saw his close range effort on goal pushed away by the Chasetown keeper while Brad Carroll fired wide of the left hand post.

Chasetown grew into the first half and began to create opportunities through Danny Cocks before Jazz Luckies goal bound effort was cleared off the line by the Kendal defence. Chasetown missed a guilt edged chance moments later when Carters close range volley was well saved by Dixon in the Kendal goal.

However the main talking point came on the stroke of half time when Brad Carroll was shown a straight red card for am adjudged hand ball in the penalty area. Once Carroll was sent off the referee pointed to the penalty spot, before Chasetown missed the resulting penalty after Matt Gardner saw his shot saved by the legs of Stuart Dixon in the Kendal goal.

With Kendal down to ten men, Chasetown dominated the opening twenty minutes of the second half while Dixon made another good save to deny Callum Cockerill Mollett.

Chasetown who used their one man advantage to full effect continued to miss good chances while Kendal did well to keep the game goalless.

However the visitors opened the scoring on 70 minutes after George Carter found time and space before rolling the ball into the bottom corner as Kendal went 1-0 down.

Kendal pushed for the equaliser only to be denied in injury time after Stu Mc Donald saw his shot rebound off the post while Bobby Thomas scuffed his shot wide moments later.

In the end Chasetown held onto secure an important win, while Kendal are now level on points with the second relegation position in the table.

Kendal travel to play Leek Town on Saturday.
