1st half.

Match started at a slow pace and we seemed a little nervous, with a few players getting frustrated. Around the 20 min mark the opposition had a free kick in a dangerous area, the lad struck it well to convert, giving them the break through, 0-1. We hadn’t started to play how we can and seemed to struggle to keep possession. We had a penalty before the halftime break only to hit it wide of the target, we was thinking this was gonna be one of those days. halftime came with the lads head dropped.

Halftime talk was a good brain storming session with the lads picking up on some key information. A change in positions with Diego to CB and Adam to CM was also made.


2nd half.

We came out with a better attitude, but we got hit on a counter to put us behind 0-2. Great determination allowed us playing in the final 3rd for the next 10 minutes. Harlem had a great run along the wing and was too clever for the defender when running into the box, resulting in another penalty. Along stepped up Lewis to covert making it 1-2, striking it with great precision. That goal gave the lads a lot of confidence and you could see an instant changing of the tide. Moments later we struck again with a fabulous pass from Adam to assist Ryan with a hard and low shot through the keepers legs, 2-2. A few minutes later Ryan hit again when Jay expertly picks him out to confidently slot home another, 3-2. Minutes again Luis passes a lovely ball to Harlem to wrap the game up making it 4-2 and a well deserved goal for him after a great 2nd half performance by the lad. Great 2nd half performance from the lads, taking us top of the league with games in hand.
