Our inconsistent and frustrating form continues. Last season we couldn’t register back-to-back victories and going into today’s game was our first opportunity to end this run.
We lost our captain and influential midfielder Gary Lunt through injury after 14 minutes, being replaced by Jack Evans. Both teams created opportunities but 0-0 at half time was a fair result based on poor finishing and good goalkeeping.
W’ton & Perton took the lead on 50 minutes after Bradey Birch in midfield was caught in possession resulting in their striker running through on goal beating our keeper at his near post, 0-1. On 61 minutes our substitute Jack Evans had to be replaced again through injury after suffering an injury to his knee. The next goal was going to be crucial and unfortunately for us it went to W’ton & Perton on 70 minutes, a good team goal and finished clinically, 0-2.
Thanks to referee Andy Rowe and his two assistants who kept the game flowing.
Next weekend we travel to play Monyhull Church.
