WOODLEY United remain third-bottom of the Division One East table after losing 3-2 at home to Chalvey Sports on Saturday.

The Kestrels endured a dreadful first half as they went 3-0 down following goals from Jason Murney, Tom Janson and Richard Jeffrey.

However, Woodley started the second half well and a nice move ended with a Leon Mannion shot from the right saved.

Seven minutes after the restart United were given a lifeline when Max Laschok was bought down in the box, Jon Malone sending Liam Nash the wrong way with a penalty into the right corner.

Moments after pulling one back a well struck shot from Sam Wood from the left forced Nash into a good save.

The match then entered a very scrappy period with lots of stoppages in play as the tackles started to fly in and neither keeper was troubled.

United ended the game with their best spell of the match, Mannion seeing his header miss to the right following a Wilson cross.

A fantastic ball by Harry Hawkins then found Freddie Barron, who in turn picked out Mannion. However, the frontman couldn’t test Nash while Barron had an effort saved.

With the game in added time, Pele Hagger did well to block a powerful Jansons’ shot before an own goal gave Woodley a consolation after a green-shirted player turned into his own net a Chace Jewell cross from the right.

Woodley United host Didcot Town Development next Monday (7.45pm).
