Match Report from Darren McKeon
After 5 straight wins we were going into this game confident and started the better side and after a good run down the right by Jason De MelBroomfield panicked and 2 of their side scaved him down in the area. Up stepped Reilly to break the net with the pen - 1-0.
It continued with the game being scrappy with the ball moving in the wind and bouncing of shins, knees and ankles and no team stringing more than a couple of passes together which resulted in both sides playing long ball football but with us being comfortable and not troubled. Up stepped Darren to make some subs and keep people fresh and we lost momentum in the game other than a few borderline offside calls against Fleetwood and Knighty, it started to feel like we were getting nothing and after another long ball and Ginge rushing off his line the striker got a touch on it and we were back to 1-1 at half time.
We talked a lot about trying to string some passes together but went straight back to long ball and playing pretty poorly and no matter what changes McKeon made it made no difference and soon Broomfield broke down the right which turned into a goal mouth scramble which eventually ended up going in 2-1 with 30 mins to go, the game didn't get much better and we did create 2 decent chances to draw level which weren't taken 1 knight put wide from the rihht of the box and a back post header from ash yet again wide.
We go again next lads and go on another winning streak.
