|Result||D 2 - 2|
|Scorers||James Archer (1), Ricky Lally (1)|
After narrowly losing to Stafford 1-0 in the previous fixture, Old Wulfs were optimistic about the forthcoming game – especially as they had 13 players.
From the off, Old Wulfs 6ths put large amounts of pressure on Stafford’s defence which resulted in the first fifteen minutes being entirely in their 25. Simon Heron was unlucky to see his shot come back off the post; likewise Dan Jandu was thwarted by some impressive goal keeping. In spite of Wulfs’ pressure, they inevitably were caught out on the break and highlighted why they’re in the race for promotion in this season. Nonetheless, Wulfs responded well and won a series of short corners – one of which fell to skipper James Archer who riffled the ball into the back of the goal.
Virtually a carbon copy of the first half: Wulfs had a large percentage of possession but lacked the final touch. Stafford scored on the counter despite the best efforts of Adrian Hill in defence. However, Old Wulfs were determined to cause an upset in the race for promotion in NW2 and so they did, when a miss-hit shot from Ricky Lally found its way over the line to make it 2-2.
An enjoyable game which highlighted how far Old Wulfs 6ths have come since the start of the season and who remain unbeaten since late January.
Our next fixture is against OW’s 5th team which is sure to be an extremely competitive game – let’s hope the 6ths can cause another upset on the cards, as they did this week, and claim club bragging rights.
