We have had a great start getting four wins out of our first four games and beating teams easily and looking comfortable being at the top and the pressure that will continue to be put on us if we keep on winning. I feel we are still a player or two from a ‘perfect’ side but that is always the case as you always look to improve the side. If we can keep our front three fit and firing then I can see us having a strong chance of winning the league.
Kevin Cawley – 15k
Elliot Embleton – 3 Month Loan
A couple more players have joined the club in Cawley and Embleton. Kevin comes in to add competition to Dunn for the CAM position as Dunn was the only player comfortable in that position and Cawley has some very good stats for this level. I have also been retraining Larnell Cole to play in centre midfield which he has been and hasn’t played below a 7 which is a promising start. Elliot has also come in for 3 months more as a back up but we do get injures ans suspensions.
Eastleigh – Away – League – 2nd V 1st
An open end to end 30 minutes with both sides coming close to breaking the deadlock but it was us who take the lead shortly before the half hour mark. The goal comes when Dunn plays the ball to Green to run on to and fire across the keeper and in to the bottom corner. Eastleigh pull level when Yeates hits a long ball to Constable who drills it in to the top corner. Green puts us back in front just before half time when a shot from Dunn deflects off a defender and falls to Green to tuck past the keeper. We secure the win in injury time after Green whips a low ball to Waring at the near post who fires it against the post and it rebounds off Togwell and in to the back of the net.
Boreham Wood – Home – League – 1st V 17th
We take a deserved lead in the second half when Norburn puts a free kick in to the area and Magloire rises highest to head home past the keeper. We give away a penalty minutes later for a sloppy tackle and Andrade punishes us by putting it in to the top corner to get a share of the points.
Solihull – Away – League – 19th V 1st
We open the scoring after a shot from Green is going wide but Waring gets to it just in time and pokes in from a tight angle. We double our lead when Dunn plays the ball over the top to Green who volleys it in to the back of the net. Green makes it three when he beats the offside trap and fires it in to the top corner giving the keeper no chance. Solihull get in the game with a goal of their own when they play a short free kick in to the area before slotting it under the keeper. We get a fourth and it’s Green again after Dunn squares it to him inside the area to tuck home. We make it five late on when Magloire heads in at the back post from a corner.
Dover – Home – League – 1st V 12th
One of those games where nothing was going for us and it didn’t help when Fox was shown a straight red early in the game for a late challenge from behind. We continue to push for the goal despite being a man down but it was Dover who grabs the win and all three points when we can’t clear a corner and Daniel fires past the keeper.
Barrow – Home – League – 1st V 14th
We take an early lead when Reckford sprints down the left before pulling the ball back to Dunn inside the area to poke past the keeper. Waring gets our second when he gets on the end of a free kick from Embleton and heads home at the near post. Waring gets his second of the game after the ball is bouncing around in the area and he reacts quickest and fires in to the bottom corner. Green makes it four in injury time when he is open in the area from a free kick and heads past the keeper.
Maidenhead – Away – League – 3rd V 1st
Jack Dunn gives us an early lead after some lovely one touch passing around the area before Waring slides Dunn in to tuck under the keeper. Dunn gets a second with a worldie of goal when Green crosses from the right in to the area and he volleys it in to the top corner. Magloire makes it three when he beats the keeper with a looping header from a corner.
We continue our good run but the slim chance of an unbeaten season has come to an end after a slight slip up with the defeat to Dover which on another day wouldn’t of happened but we didn’t turn up and they did so fair play to them. Our main three of Waring, Green and Dunn are still playing out their skin and either bagging a goal or two a game or setting up the other to score. We have Leyton Orient coming up who are continuing to push us and match us game for game and that game could be a title deciding game if they also have a strong season. We also start our FA cup journey with a qualifying round with hopes of going on a run and maybe getting a big team at our place. Magloire is another player who has come in and done very well and has also contributed with a couple of goals and hopefully we can extend his loan till the end of the season.
