Early Contenders?

 

Alright lads,

Welcome back to the blog as we continue to play well and stay in and around the play offs. We were unlucky to lose against Leicester in our last game but we put in a good performance and hopefully that won’t knock our confidence going in to the next few games.

Scunthorpe – Away – League – 8th V 4th

We make the breakthrough early in the first half. A corner gets knocked down by Hugill to Enobakhare who fires in from close range. We score a second when Enobakhare goes on a solo run beating player after player and squaring it to Ennis to tap in on the 6 yard line. We win a penalty after a counter attack after Ennis was hacked down in the box which Nugent converted straight down the middle. Scunthorpe pull one back when they square it to the edge of the area and tucks it in to the bottom corner. Scunthorpe then get a second in injury time after a cross falls to their striker to poke in.

 

Colchester – Home – League – 2nd V 22nd

We get the only goal in the game in which we dominated from start to finish and one in which we should of scored more goals. We get the goal just before half time when we had some brilliant build up play leading to Enobakhare laying it off to Hugill to fire under the keeper.

 

MK Dons – Away – League – 4th V 3rd

MK Dons score first with a brilliant free kick in to the top corner giving the keeper no chance of stopping it. We get back in to the game late on with a much deserved goal when Kuhl plays it to Scougall on the edge of the area to smash it in after taking a deflection on the way. We come away with a point in one of our toughest games yet this season.

 

Liverpool U’23’s – Home – Checkatrade Trophy Group B

We win an early penalty after one of our players gets pushed over inside the area at a free kick. Le Fondre steps up and cooly puts it in to the bottom corner. We get a second after Adams flicks on free kick to Satka to head home at the back post. A well desrved win meaning we win the group and progress in to the next round.

 

Shrewsbury – Home – League – 2nd V 6th

Enobakhare puts us in front after he receives the ball from a corner and smashes it through a number of players in to the bottom corner. Satka doubles our lead late on when Clarke-Salter flicks the ball on from a corner to Satka who is open at the back post to tap in.

 

Northampton – Away – League – 15th V 1st

We score in the opening couple of minutes when Kuhl gets in to the are and curls it past the keeper in to the far post. Le Fondre scores our second when Adams plays him through and shoots first time and it flies in to the bottom corner. Northampton get one back after poor defending with a header back to the keeper being to short and Samuel taking advantage and putting it past the keeper at his near post. They get an equalizer after a cross falls to their player at the near post and pokes it in to take a share of the points.

WE ARE TOP OF THE LEAGUE! WE’RE GONNA WIN THE LEAGUE! Bit early? We are continuing to play well and dominate games but we do seem to lack that killer instinct in some games and are unable to finish teams off but saying that we do currently sit top of the pile. We have brought in a couple of players just help boost the numbers where we were a little light. Scougall looks very average but his stats are far better than Enobakhare’s and is a nice back up to him. We also have brought in Gardner. He is only here till the end of the season and has plenty of experience in higher leagues. We have some tough games coming up in the next dew games along with an FA Cup game which in theory should be an easy result.

 

 

Thanks for reading.
