Winchester City 2-3 Paulton Rovers
Really gutted today to be honest, Paulton really have turned into a bogey side for us, that’s 5 games against them without a win since ive been here, today was a sickener as we should have been out of sight by half time. Missed chances and poor goals from set pieces had them level, then to make it worse we concede and lose 3-2 in second half. Gutted but we fight on.
We went ahead with a lob from Tyrell in first minute, pegged back from set piece, then instantly 2-1 up with a great run from Reece Rusher and cross as put in own net. Then pegged back again 2-2, we missed a hatful with Simba being main culprit sadly and had to be content 2-2.
Connor had to come off injured at half time which meant a reshuffle and Matt Benham who we signed today came on... we didn’t really get the same grip of the game in 2nd half but still had numerous chances to get a goal, then conceded with a really sloppy bit of defending and try as we might we couldn’t get that equaliser.
Gutted but we would have settled for 4th place with a game in hand on 2 above us, 10 points from 15 and still in fa cup at start of season, however we really did miss an opportunity today and that is what really hurts today.
Boys are giving their all, playing through all sorts of niggles, we also have several missing still that we need back ASAP.
We have a week to train and recover now ahead of a good trip away to Merthyr, nothing expected of us up there and so we will go and give it a good go!
Sorry about the result but we have to go again now!
Up the citizens!
