Match Report

For the first time this season no introductions were necessary so 5ths pre-match talk could concentrate on how to play against opponents from the top end of the table who we expected to be a tough challenge. Bridgnorth 6ths proved to be a very good team, and for most of the game we proved to be effective opponents, keeping our shape and positional discipline as well as in any game so far this season. Bridgnorth had a 1 - 0 lead at half time courtesy of a cruel deflection on a short corner strike that put the ball into the net beyond the reach of any defender. In the second half Bridgnorth continued to put us under pressure, and we held firm until 5 minutes from the end when eventually they got a ball behind our defence and their forward was able to force the ball over the line. So a 2 - 0 win for Bridgnorth, but we gave them a competitive game and if the team can maintain the positional discipline we showed and add some power to our attacking play our results will improve.
