WCFC 3-2 Cirencester Town
What a great result and an excellent performance, playing against a good Cirencester side who were sat in the play offs, to perform the way we did and get the 3 points was superb and very proud of the whole squad!!
We were without Joe Cook suspended and Flooksy failed a fitness test, both have been absolutely influential in the recent run we have been on, Graham Williams came in and we brought Kinger back in, shuffling Rawks forward and giving Simba a very specific role today that we worked hard on, to say the hard work paid off would be an understatement with that work we put in on this...
So against the fairly heavy wind first half we took the game to them from the start, they didn’t really have any shots or efforts of note at all in the first half, we missed a couple of good chances before Simba scored the first, we got a 2nd when Baz corner was nodded in by their defender. 2-0 up at the break.
2nd half we had the wind in our favour and again totally dominated the game, Baz could have put us 3-0 up in the first minute of half but eventually got a 3rd from Ty who we had substituted on. We changed both wingers who had run themselves into the ground! They really hadn’t entered our box at any point, however a bit of a mixup allowed them to get 1 back and then a 2nd from a penalty with a few minutes left, all of a sudden it was a game that we had to close off again, to be fair we did that superbly and they didn’t have a touch really for the last 3/4 minutes. 3-2 win and that was quite flattering to them I thought.
A great 3 points against a decent side and so I am delighted! Very proud of the efforts of the whole squad, also the staff who worked hard to pick the side we did and set us up as we did, a real group effort! Well done everyone.
Now we have a weeks training to prepare for Highworth away which will be another tough game, we will go there full of confidence though.
Up the citizens!!
