Taunton Town 4-1 Winchester City
Horrific conditions in our face 1st half, they scored a soft pen early on, after that we struggled to clear our lines for long spells as the wind kept blowing the ball back... they got a 2nd and we were up against it. We battled well though and scored a superb goal when Willo drove down the right and crossed for Oli to finish and we were back in it.
2nd half started and we were controlling the game, they were penned in but a breakout from them and a shot going wide was deflected and prycey had to save and they scored the follow up. Still had them penned in, however gave the ball away as we were flying forward and they scored, absolute sucker punch!
Ultimately it’s a game that they deserved to win in the end, I thought we were well in the ascendency until that 3rd goal though frustratingly, have to say the conditions first half gave them a huge lift and missing players killed us. Very decent display from a number of the players and we played some good stuff, we have to regroup now though and get ready for next Fridays fixture. A word for 18 year old Joe Cook on his league debut who I thought was very good.
Gutted about the result but we will work hard now and be ready for next week!
Up the citizens!
