Fenwick at the treble as City extend winning run

Scott Fenwick's hat-trick of penalties helped Chelmsford City to a 4-2 win over 10-man Whitehawk in the Vanarama National League South.

Writes Dan Deakins...

Whitehawk performed an incredible first half comeback after falling 2-0 behind after 12-minutes, but two Fenwick penalties in the second half delivered Chelmsford's third win in a row.

Michael Spillane capitalised on Chelmsford's early pressure in the fourth minute, receiving the ball on the edge of the box from a deep free kick and beautifully curling a shot into the bottom corner.

The Clarets had a chance to increase their advantage to two in the 12th-minute when Roberts won a penalty as his run into the box was obstructed. Fenwick stepped up and neatly slotted home for his third in as many games.

Gold Omotayo was presented with an open opportunity to pull one back for Whitehawk in the 19th-minute when Sam Beasant was left stranded after failing to claim a cross. The ball was headed back across the box to Omotayo but the number 10's header flew just wide.

Whitehawk pulled one back in quite sublime fashion in the 25th-minute and was apt reward for a sustained spell of attacking intent. After a melee in Chelmsford's box from a Whitehawk corner, the ball fell to Nathaniel Pinney on his own on the penalty spot and the striker volleyed in.

Omotayo completed Whitehawk's stunning comeback just six minutes later following a swift counter-attack. Giles was dispossessed in the middle of the pitch and Nassim L'Ghoul sprinted into space down the left flank. The winger crossed into the middle, just outside the box, Omotayo took a touch to control and buried his shot into the bottom corner beyond the dive of Beasant.

Whitehawk went down to 10-men shortly after the start of the second half, as left-back Osa Obamwonyi was given two yellow cards in three minutes; the first for a reckless aerial challenge, and the second for a foul on substitute Shaun Batt on the far right-hand side.

Chelmsford were awarded their second penalty of the game in the 74th-minute, when Spillane's close range free kick was adjudged to strike the arm of a Whitehawk player in the wall. Fenwick again stepped up and scored his second.

Fenwick completed his hat-trick in the 91st-minute, when Bagasan Graham was brought down in the box for Chelmsford's third penalty. Fenwick was then substituted to a standing ovation.
