BBFC 0-1 Wittersham
“Very frustrating afternoon & a reality check on promotion…best not to dwell on negative thoughts”
The first 2 minutes were our undoing, going 1-0 down to their No 10. It’s like we had “parked” everything we had talked about in our pre-match time. But we then responded well & created enough chances to win the game. We had shots saved, missed, hitting the woodwork & saved off the line.
In an end to end affair, Wittersham were also a threat on the counter-attack. But our defence held out & Shaun Utting made some timely saves to keep us in the game.
Overall, we didn’t play as well as we can do. In certain areas, we lacked the sharpness of passing & energy levels of recent weeks. We also seemed to take that extra time or touch near goal. This allowed a resolute Wittersham defence to get blocks in, nip balls away & clear their lines. In hindsight my tactical changes & substitutions could have been more imaginative & bolder. And yet we were always in the game but just couldn’t get the break through we needed.
Special mention to Matt Ward & James James Stephen Rogers for their individual contributions this week. Matt deserved more after his strong play up front & James competed well against Wittersham’s Nos 9 & 10.
Best not to dwell on this. Let’s have encouraging & productive weeks & be raring to get our push for promotion back on track.
