Bishops Cleeve 4-2 Winchester
Horrible night from start to finish to be honest! We are truly playing with over half a side and squad missing and it’s massively caught up with us this last week, we have tried hard to bring in some cover with a bit of pedigree but we really need to get the players back and quickly!
Today’s game was tough, they were fired up for it and the key was to start the game well, we didn’t and put in a really poor display! Conceded a poor goal after several chances to clear didn’t happen and they nipped into score, we responded well and got a goal from a pen by Jamie Barron, we had a couple of chances to score somehow saved and one cleared off the line but they quickly after that went 2-1 up with a horror OG from Danny King, then 3-1 up when a cross was dropped and tapped in! 3-1 down at half time.
Some home truths were told at half time and we came out and to be fair gave a much better display and chance after chance went begging or didn’t fall to us. I have to say the pitch was one of the worst I have seen but that is no excuse really as we should have been better. Also some unbelievable decisions from the referee but again that was not responsible for how bad the goals we conceded were. After all that pressure and pushing more and more men forward they scored a 4th from a pen on the break. We got one back with a nice bit of play and then a cross by Danny Cox touched in by Oli.
In the end we lose 4-2, huge dent to our hopes but we have to keep pushing now, regroup and get ready for to respond to this now on Saturday at home to Barnstaple!
Heads up everyone, we have to be better than that, the boys know that and we will make sure we are!
Up the citizens!
