A scrappy game today - a 1-1 draw
was probably a fair result but we did have many chances to put the game
beyond doubt - but could not quite close it out.
goal was sublime skill - nearly matched by a very close effort from
several other near misses.
We drew some very positive
elements out of today's game. The defensive line was very solid and acted
in unison - very pleased with the way we are not leaking goals like last
season - gives us a good foundation. However, we are still falling down
around mid-field and up front. We are not contesting strongly enough from
defensive clearances (especially with our heading in mid-field) and our
quality of through ball still needs some work.
Some very good performances today
was superb in defense, providing excellent coverage and some well poised
clearances under pressure, James G
curbed his wandering ways with a quality backline
played a great game, bonding very well with the backline and contesting
showed some deft skills and became more physically assertive during the game
which was great. With these performances, man of the match was a difficult
decision but for an all round effort, channelling his energy positively into
the game and making some quality saves -
our man this week!
