POOR START PROVES COSTLY IN DEFEAT AGAINST AVRO
By LOWER BRECK
3-2 Defeat Halts The Winning Run...
A 3-2 defeat for the today against Avro FC when a slow start has ultimately cost us dear.
Not for the first time this season we started the game way of the pace and we found ourselves two nil down in the opening 15 minutes.
The first a soft freekick given away when there was no danger with the player going away from goal and the resulting freekick went under the wall.
The second goal a near post header from a corner and a good run across the box from Avro player seen him beat a static defender who was rooted to the spot.
We got ourselves back into the game with a cracking finish from Peter Donnelly after a quality Brodie Kearns ball caught the right hand side of the Avro defence out.
But we continued to give away poor possession and on the stroke of half time another corner was given away and once again a player not doing a basic job resulted in a goal being put away from close range.
Once again a half time rant seemed to have desired effect but it wasn’t until a change of personal and formation that we looked like getting the goal to get us right back in the game and it duly come moments later.
A spilled shot from the Avro keeper was pulled back to Jamie Henders who knocked it home from a tight angle to make it game on.
We put Avro under more pressure but we was still wasteful in some of things we was doing and not being helped by a team of poor officials making some strange calls throughout the game we just couldn’t get the break we needed to get a goal to snatch a point late on.
I’ll be truthful and say that result has been coming due to fact we have been starting games way too slow and it was always going to be the case someone would punish us for it eventually.
Playing poor and nearly snatching a point is a slight positive to take against a good Avro side but ultimately our performance wasn’t good enough and a few players haven’t turned up for us today in terms of there own showings.
A big training session is now needed on Thursday night and with 4 players returning to the squad from holidays there is a few shirts that can be won or lost on the strength of there desire on Thursday.
Man Of Match today once again went to MICK DOUGLAS who was one of the only lads to show a set of bollocks in that opening 30 minutes when the going was tough.
It’s three cup games on the spin for us now with the first being Carlisle City next Saturday at ASCC.
We Go Again.
