Chelmsford City
Taylor Miles Kudus Oyenuga

Last minute winner for Clarets at league leaders

Chelmsford City came from behind to snatch victory at league leaders Dartford this afternoon with goals from Kudus Oyenuga and Taylor Miles.

The Clarets were unlucky to be behind at the break after a number of chances, including Miles striking the bar with a curling free kick from the edge of the penalty area.

It was the hosts in went in at half-time with the advantage following Ryan Hayes wonderful solo goal on 33 minutes.

City had to wait until late on for a chance to get the game back on level terms, but their patience paid off when substitute Kudus Oyenuga was brought down in the box and the Clarets were awarded the spot kick.

The forward stepped up to take penalty himself and fired home to make it 1-1 with four minutes of regular time to play.

Rod Stringer’s side weren’t finished there though, and when a corner was awarded deep into stoppage time, nobody could’ve predicted what would happen next.

Taylor Miles swung the corner in, only for it to evade everyone in the box, including Dartford keeper Deren Ibraham and curl straight into the top corner of the net sending the travelling fans in raptures.

The result brings Chelmsford right back into the title fight and moves them up to 4th in the table. Next weekend Hemel Hempstead visit Melbourne Stadium as City look to push on and remain in the mix.
