A Mixed Bag

 

Alright lads,

We are back at it in the league as we look to build on our strong start in the league as we come up against some strong teams in the next few games. We also have the chance to progress in a cup or two should we perform well and have luck on our side. We have played some of the best I have seen this team play.

 

Sheffield United – Home – League – 1st V 8th

Sheffield United get the winning goal late on in what was a tight game with neither team being able to create many clear goal scoring chances. They win a corner in the 87th minute which gets whipped in and Packwood is there to rise highest and head home giving them the 3 points.

Rotherham – Away – League – 22nd V 2nd

We go in front early on after a ball in to the box from Enobakhare hits their defender Nugent and the keeper is wrong footed and is unable to stop it from going in the net. Enobakhare turns goalscorer when he gets our second when he scores from the edge of the area after receiving the ball from a corner. We get a third when Kuhl scores just before half time with a rocket in to the top corner.

 

Bolton – Home – League – 2nd V 23rd

We had some good chances in the early stages to go in front but it wasn’t until the 34th minute when a goal came and it was for Bolton. A route one ball which gets knocked down to Agyei who takes a touch and smashes it in to the back of the net from outside the area. Agyei gets a second and wraps up the win for Bolton when he gets on the end of a whipped ball in from Taylor to head in to the back of the net, he looked in an offside position but the goal stands which was frustrating.

 

Weymouth – Home – FA Cup 1st Round

We get the opener courtesy of Clarke-Harris who gets on the end of a ball in from Clarke to head in to the bottom corner with the keeper getting a slight hand to it. He gets a second of the game with a volley from just inside the area clipping the underside of the bar as it goes in. Weymouth get a foot back in the game when they score a free header in to an empty goal after Zabret comes for the free kick and misses it leaving an open goal. Le Fondre makes it three when he pokes the ball in at the near post after Clarke squares it to him on the 6 yard line.

Oxford – Away – League – 7th V 3rd

Oxford are gifted the lead midway in the first half when Nyambe heads a cross in to his own net when he had time to control it and clear it. Enobakhare pulls us level minutes later with a nice finish in to the bottom corner after a quick one two with Kuhl. We take the lead when Kuhl fires the ball in from 30 yards. We get a third when Clarke-Harris curls it in to the bottom corner from just inside the area.

 

Luton – Home – League – 2nd V 6th

We take the lead in the first half when Enobakhare scores a volley from the edge of the area taking a deflection on the way in after receiving the ball from a corner. Luton get an equaliser when they get a free kick to the right of the goal. They curl it round the wall and under the goalkeeper. Luton take the lead after our defender slips near the area and Taylor is there to rob the ball and slot it past the keeper. Le Fondre gets us level after we counter from a Luton free kick and Shephard squares to him to tuck home.

We are still playing well despite a couple of blips against Sheffield United and Bolton which are kind of expected, even if Bolton were managerless at the time! We had an easy cup game against Weymouth and most of the side was rotated and they played well (granted it was against a non league team) which earned Clarke-Harris a run in the side which he has took with both hands after Hugill got injured and is out for the season and our other strikers not banging them in and a player we was after turned us down who could of been our goalscorer. We are still on course to have a good season and are really punching above our weight by sitting second in the league.

 

 

Thanks for reading.
