MATCH REPORT: Burton Albion 6-1 Chippenham Town | Emirates FA Cup Second Round | Sun 27th Nov 2022
The Bluebirds epic FA Cup run came to an end in Staffordshire as Burton Albion made their full-time status show.
After going in two goals down at the break the Bluebirds came out strongly at the start of the second and scored on the hour mark through Harry Parsons, unfortunately the Brewers had already scored their third by then against the run of play and then went on to hit a further three.
The League One side dominated from the off and a second minute cross from Tom Hamer saw John Borthwick-Jackson’s header saved by Will Henry.
Eleven minutes later an intricate free kick routine from the hosts ended with Victor Adeboyejo’s effort disallowed for off side.
On seventeen minutes Alex Bray’s run saw him just fail to find Craig Fasanmade.
At the other end David Keillor-Dunn saw his shot deflected behind, whilst Cameron Borthwick-Jackson’s shot was held by Will Henry.
The Bluebirds then lost Fasanmade to injury to be replaced by Jordan Young.
The Brewers opened the scoring on twenty six minutes as Bobby Kamwa crossed to Deji Oshilaja who laid the ball back to Jonny Smith to apply a neat finish.
As the hosts continued to dominate Adeboyejo and David Keillor-Dunn we’re both off target with chances.
Adeboyejo and Taylor both failed with headed efforts.
A minute before the break Oshilaja made a twisting run along the by-line before doubling the lead.
In stoppage time Adeboyejo saw his effort ruled out for off side.
HALF TIME: Burton Albion 2-0 Chippenham Town
Gary Horgan made three substitutes at the beginning of the second half and for a while the Bluebirds proved to be the better side.
Young’s shot was saved by Ben Garrett whilst the keeper also repelled a Young free kick and saved Will Tizzard’s headed effort.
Against the run of play Burtonn scored a third on fifty five minutes as a low cross found Bobby Kamwa who fired home from close in.
Chippenham deservedly pulled a goal back on the hour when Alfie Santos’s cross found its way to fellow substitute Tom Mehew whose reverse pass saw Harry Parsons slide the ball home.
Henry then saved Keillor-Dunn’s curling shot whilst an effort from Kamwa was blocked.
On seventy six minutes a combination of Young and Luke Russe saw Mehew’s shot deflected behind.
From the resulting short corner Bray appeared to be fouled but nothing was given and the hosts broke away and substitute Sam Winnall scored the fourth.
Winnall then poked home his second on eighty four minutes and in the final minute of normal time the ball was laid to Oshilaja to convert.
In stoppage time substitute Joe Parker found Young whose shot deflected to the keeper.
