Hudlin hits heady heights...
Kyle Hudlin struck deep into stoppage time to seal a dramatic 2-1 win over Chesterfield at the SportNation.bet Stadium on Tuesday night.
The 20-year-old proved to be Moors’ match-winner yet again, heading home Jamie Ward's cross to avenge his side's defeat to the Spirerites three days ago.
Hudlin’s heroics came after Joe Sbarra had levelled for the Moors after they had fallen behind to Tom Denton’s first-half header.
It was clear Moors wanted to avenge Saturday’s defeat, Hudlin coming close with barely a minute on the clock after good wing play from Coxe.
However, a lengthy pause in play, caused by a switch in officials, broke Moors’ momentum and Denton capitalised from a corner to put the visitors in front.
After a steady start to the second half, Moors had the crossbar to thank for keeping it 1-0 as Akwasi Asante’s jinking run led to him thundering a shot off the woodwork.
The close call appeared to spur Moors into life and Sbarra was quickest to react in the box to put the home side back on level terms.
Kyle Storer thought he had snatched all three points late on, heading home a Jamie Ward corner but Moors’ celebrations were cut short following a foul in the build-up.
But that wasn’t the end of the drama, Hudlin as has happened many a time this season, had the last word and the whirlwind fairy-tale continues.
