Widnes took the lead after 23 minutes ij controversial circumstances. A Chasetown player was down with a head injury but the visitors played on an George Lomax fired past Curtis Pond.

Despite being a man down Widnes had the better of the second half even though Chasetown almost added a third when George Cater had his shot cleared off the line and Hill fired the rebound against the outside of the post.

In the dying seconds Chasetown added a third when leading scorer Hill fired home from close range.
