Due to a couple of drop-outs in the morning we fielded the bare 11, fortunately against Whitchurch’s equally bare 11. It became clear after the opening salvoes that there was something in the game for us but, not for the first time this season, we didn’t convert our chances and we entered the break 2-0 down. Besides not finishing our chances, we seemed to be making the wrong decisions and giving the ball away cheaply on numerous occasions. This continued into the second half but as our share of the possession increased we cranked up the pressure and it was only a matter of time before we pulled a goal back through a Dan straight hit from the top of the D. The equaliser came from a short where Dan’s flick was too strong for the keeper’s parry and the ball span and looped into the net. One or two chances came to win the game but it wasn’t to be. Possibly two points lost in the end but we can’t be greedy although still drawing despite not playing well is promising. Man of the Match was newbie, Alex, for industrious work down the left side of midfield and bursts of pace and flashes of skill that bode well for the future.
