Winchester City 0-1 Moneyfields
Disappointing night on a bitterly cold evening and an ice rink pitch by the end. We just didn't get going and in the end a goal from them and a number of late spurned chances meant we lost narrowly to Moneyfields.
We had a bit of a disaster before the game in finding out that Luke King had played a small part for a previous team in Hants cup and so was ineligible, then Griggsy and Danny King failed fitness tests, so it threw our plans into chaos! We also made a few other changes to ensure lads were getting minutes!
Game was a poor one, they are a side who are well below their potential in the league, that same group were 3rd in the league last season and so they are in a false position! They battle hard and were on top for spells in first half! No goals to show! It was opposite in 2nd half as we bossed much more of the game but again no goal! Then late on their striker hutchings who is a major threat scored and we just couldn't get the leveller!
So we bow out, it's not the end of the world but we will regroup at training now and get ready for a massive task with a trip to the runaway league leaders Frome on Saturday!! We look forward to it!
Up the citizens!
