Slimbridge 2-2 Winchester City
Well we are still in the cup that’s just about all I can say, the boys have had a lot of plaudits and rightly so, however today was below standard, we looked like we had done enough to get through 2-1 but a last minute slimbridge equaliser left it 2-2 and a replay required on Tuesday night.
We are still without a host of players and went with the same lineup as last weekend, we didn’t get our game going at all and found ourselves 1-0 down when a shot caught Prycey out. Our reaction was good and we scored with a good passing move and Reece crossed for Ty to nod in, then another good move was finished off by Barron (somewhat fortuitously with the finish bouncing in off post), we needed to kill the game at that point but didn’t and came in 2-1 at the break.
Second half was a bit of a non event with little/no goal action at either end, we looked as though we had done enough to close the game out, however a long looping cross wasn’t dealt with and they scored after a bobble around in the box. That came in the last minute and we had to settle for a reply - which in fairness was what they deserved.
We now have to regroup and get the boys back ready, our Hants cup tie will now be pushed back a week which may have knock on affects with other fixtures, it really is hurting our league standing and giving us so much to do, however we have to keep pushing in all competitions as much as possible.
Heads up boys, you have been superb, today was below par but we have a chance to fix that Tuesday now.
Up the citizens!!
