CHEADLE were disappointingly a goal down inside four minutes, when a harmless-looking through ball was poorly dealt with, leaving a Goldenhill striker with a simple finish.

Cheadle equalised on 16 minutes following an excellent interchange between Jack Pattinson and Adam Tanner.

The ball was fed to Andoni Fantis, who unleashed a powerful shot which the keeper could only palm into the path of Dan Harper to score.

Cheadle were grateful to Dec Unsworth for clearing the danger when put under pressure from a poor back-pass, but on the half-hour, the keeper was beaten again when a 30-yard free kick found the roof of the net.

Cheadle managed to go into the break all square when an excellent Kurt Silvester free kick was poorly dealt with by the Goldenhill keeper, and Jacob Campbell was on hand to head in from close range.

The half -time break seemed to work wonders for Cheadle, who came storming out of the blocks to take the lead from another exquisite Silvester set piece, with the unmarked Campbell applying the finishing touch.

Four minutes later, a clumsy challenge led to the award of a Cheadle penalty, which Harper confidently converted to put Cheadle in control of the tie.

Midway through the half, Cheadle scored their fifth goal, showing great strength to dispossess a defender and hold off the keeper before stroking the ball home.

The crowd did not have to wait too long for goal number six when they were treated to some wonderful interplay between Fantis and striker Macauley Rowe which resulted in the latter getting on the score sheet.

As the game entered injury time, Harper gave Rowe a great chance to get his second of the morning – but he blazed over.

Cheadle now progress into the quarter- finals, where they have another tough tie, away to Alsager Town.

The matches are now coming thick and fast for Cheadle, with a game at Trentham Park last night (Tuesday) followed by a trip to Nantwich Town this Saturday.
