CHEADLE'S hectic end-of-season run in continued when they hosted third placed Goldenhill.

In a fiercely fought encounter it was Cheadle who came out on top in an action-packed five-goal game.

Cheadle took the lead midway through the first half when Macauley Rowe chased down a seemingly lost cause before pulling the ball back to Andoni Fantis to net from close range.

On 28 minutes, Adam Tanner and Jack Derbyshire exchanged passes before releasing Fantis to smash the ball past the keeper for Cheadle's second goal.

Goldenhill still made Town defend in numbers but every time their opponents went forward they looked likely to score.

The second half continued in a similar vein to the first with Cheadle being forced to defend a number of set-pieces.

The visitors got a goal back after a free kick caused confusion in the Cheadle box before being headed home.

Goldenhill became increasingly physical and both Jack Pattinson and Fantis were forced off the field with injuries.

The deciding goal came when Cheadle defender Johnson delivered a long throw into the six-yard box for Derbyshire to glance into the back of the net.

Cheadle extended their lead six minutes later when Jacob Campbell rose unchallenged to head home a Billy Johnson long throw.

Dan Harper made it 3-0 before half-time when he fired into the bottom corner.

The second half continued in a similar vein and Macauley Rowe showed great pace before pulling the ball back for Harper to get his second goal of the evening.

Harper had opportunities to complete his hat-trick and other chances came and went before Derbyshire completed the scoring with a comfortable finish from close range.

Cheadle complete their league campaign with a home game tomorrow (Thursday), followed by the league cup final at Norton on Sunday, 12.15 kick off.
