Match Report

Due to the large amount of blank fixtures this season we're very fortunate to have had friendly games arranged for us. Wulfs came away comfortable winners with a 3-0 margin however, it should and certainly could have been more. Wulfs started well and immediate pressure resulted in early chances, culminating in a skillful run from Ryan, who easily navigated two defenders before slotting past the keeper.

This early goal may have brought on some complacency as wulfs tried to go through the middle far too often, not making the most of space out wide and therefore losing possession.  The team became frustrated and this resulted in some bickering before half time. Some constructive discussions at half time were good for the team and the second half began far better than the first half ended. Ed Hole managed to power the ball past the keeper from a tight angle and Cal Nightingale was on the scoresheet again with a smart finish from the P spot. 

Injuries to Ed and Rob during the game tested Wulfs resolve, effectively playing with 9 for the last quarter of the game. Aside from this though, wulfs never really got out of second gear in this game and perhaps that's a missed opportunity to see what we can really do, however this game practice was far more beneficial than a weekend spent on the sofa watching football. Next week is a top of the table clash away to Redditch, a game where second gear definitely won't cut it, but we know that.
