A outstanding performance from everyone that saw us win a hard fought 2 -1 victory and continue our unbeaten run to three games. We start with a defensive formation (4 – 5 – 1) and pack the midfield with two holding players.
David Ta RM
Nick L F
Chi CM Captain
Rick Man CM
Dan H CB
Paul Hoy Goal
We start off with a good run from Willie who looks extremely dangerous all game with incisive runs. Leandro clears well and looks comfortable at the back before Dan breaks through with a shot. Although we dominate the first ten minutes they score against run of play and we are 1 – 0 down. However, we stick to our game plan and win all the battles in midfield. Then David breaks on the right crosses and Willie scores a fantastic header to make it 1 – 1. We continue to dominate the rest of the half with shots coming in from Rickman and Willie. We win the half but its a battling performance from everyone. The defense is outstanding and the midfield trio work very hard. Willie, Dave and Nick look dangerous when they get a chance.
Five minutes in Dave crosses again and Nick L gets a touch and we are ahead 2 – 1. The opposition look broken. We get a few more chances from Dave, Rickman, Nick and Willie. We rotate the midfield a little to give people a rest. Ed did very well on the left and Karan had a few nice touches when they both came on.
However, massive credit to our six defensive players. A bit negative I know but we destroyed our opponents who I think were hoping for an easier game in warmer weather.
Special mentions to Willie, Chi, Pete, Hemant, Leandro, Rickman and Dan. However Dave gets the award for his two assists.
MUG OF THE DAY
Nominations at Yorkshire were Terry, Nick and Dave. However, Dan edged it for a few headers that didn’t connect with the ball.
Well done lads!
