RUSHALL Olympic let a half-time lead slip to go down by three goals to one at home to Nantwich Town.
It was the visitors who created the first chances in the opening exchanges when Sean Cooke fired well over before Ryan Brooke placed a header just wide.
A free-kick for Nantwich in a promising position found its way over to the far post where Joe Mwasile went close with a header.
Rushall went close to opening the scoring in the 34th minute when a great cross from the left by Isaac Cooper found the head of Josh McKenzie whose effort landed just the wrong side of the post.
The opening goal arrived just a couple of minutes later when Aaron Forde unleashed a sweet strike from distance that flew beyond the reach of Daniel Gyollai.
The visitors managed to get themselves back on level terms in the 52nd minute when Mwasile broke away before unselfishly feeding Cooke who had the simple task of guiding the ball home.
An inviting low ball into the danger zone from Danico Johnson just evaded the outstretched legs of both McKenzie and Forde.
There was a real let-off for The Pics when Matt Bell saw his effort blocked on the line before Osebi Adadaki drilled the rebound wide.
As the visitors upped the pressure, Cooper put in a timely interception to deny Adadaki from close range but he could do little to prevent Cooke’s effort looping into the net with the aid of a deflection to give Nantwich a 79th minute lead.
The visitors sealed the points right at the end when Steve Jones’ strike was pushed out by Sam Arnold into the path of Matt Bell who fired home to make it 3-1.
