WCFC 1 - 0 Larkhall Athletic
Well that was a tough and hard earned 3 points against a decent and very physically powerful side, to pick up 3 straight wins after the run we had been on is impressive, I am very proud of the way that we have pulled together as a squad and a group, we have shipped a couple of players out, brought a couple in, plus ensured availability for a couple of key players, made a staff change, it’s been a busy time, we have most importantly worked bloody hard on the training ground and stuck together, today was a perfect end to a very good week for us!!
We were unfortunately without Rob Carr unwell today, Brad Gale I have let go out to Hamworthy on dual registration, Brett Cunningham was on England colleges Trials, Liam Gilbert was back though and is available all season now, plus we added Fabio and Chay from the reserve set up.
1st half it was pretty end to end but they had a few chances where it pin balled around the box, some of the saves and last ditch blocks to keep the ball out were superb, we did have our moments though and a few good chances, I said at half time though they had definitely had the better of it just about.
2nd half was another very even affair, we did manage to have a lot more control of the game, we made a slight tactical shuffle which definitely worked to nullify their threats, was a tight game but we got a goal that is worthy of winning any game, 3/4 little tippy-tappy balls around the edge of the box and a clinical finish from IK Hill, from that point they threw everyone forward and it was land of the giants all in the box, I went on in a sweeper role for last 5 minutes or so and in reality we closed the game out very well.
Fantastic 3 points, we were not at our sparkling best but no doubt the really good football was played by us, their physicality though was impressive and hard to contain at times, all in all a very good battle and a fantastic win!!
We now have a week off from 1st team games and we can work hard to get ready for a very tough game away to street who are also a big and powerful side.
Well done to the boys and have a good weekend, I know I will be!
Up the citizens!
