A game which we dominated for long periods of time but failed to find the back of the net. We had a strong team but missing a few players we still should have put the game away. We looked good in the first half and constant forays into the USRC half we somehow couldn’t break the dead lock. Joe was causing a lot of problems on the left and his crosses where seeing some narrow misses. Gab had a few shots narrowly missing the goals, while Hermod had a good chance in the first half but hit it wide. I can’t recall USRC having a single shot and maybe had one corner at best in the first half.
The second half the game evened out a bit more but we were still the dominate side. Several good chances fell for Forlan one hit straight to keeper the other wide. Adrian’s header almost put us ahead while Knowsler screamer somehow went millimeters wide. At the death USRC had a great chance to steal the game but fortunately for us he hit it wide.
A tense and important game we probably felt like we deserved the win given how much we dominated but USRC defense was well marshaled. Many times having all 11 players behind the ball defending, it seemed as though they came for the draw. In the end the draw takes us another step towards the title. Everyone played well Thomas D was brilliant in defence while Briggsy and Bertie snuffing any attack although there wasn’t too many from USRC. Both Mav and Steph had solid games as well on the flanks providing strong support to our wingers.
In midfield Knowlser touch was excellent and out wide both Simon and Steve Yeung played well. Joe was superb on the left and was a close MOM for mine giving us a lot opportunites with his crosses. Up front Hermod and Gab worked their socks off while Forlan was excellent when he came on and almost got us the goals we needed. However MOM went to Aidan who was is incredible form, he totally dominated the centre of the park and several moments of magic showed what terrific player he is.
Opportunity missed especially give our dominance but this for mine was another step towards the title. The draw maintains our three point buffer with goal difference we have 4 points effectively. With only 4 games remaining it’s in our hands.
