Nantwich Town 2 Cheadle Town 0
Cheadle struggled to get to grips with the 3G surface at the Weaver Stadium and were beaten by two controversial goals.
The visitors unsuccessfully appealed for a handball decision after Nantwich found the net in the first half.
Then came more controversy in the second half when Nantwich increased their lead from the penalty spot, after a well-timed tackle by Andy Coxon was harshly penalised.
Cheadle finished the game with 10 men after Coxon was later sent off after becoming involved in a scuffle - another refereeing decision which infuriated the visitors
Manager Glyn Pattinson remarked: "Absolutely nothing went our way and it was a poor game to watch, but the lads should not forget the previous two games when we scored 12 goals in completing a couple of excellent victories.
"We still have five league games to play and this Sunday have yet another tough away fixture when we face Alsager Town in the quarter- final of the league cup," he added.
