What Went Well:

• The commitment from all the squad players was evident throughout.

• We were always threatening when we were on the attack.

• I felt that we were in control and the better team for the majority of the game.

• It was good to see a number of players returning and playing in alternative positions which will now create competition for the limited match day places available.

• Our communication on the pitch during the game showed signs of improving.

• A draw would have been a fairer result.

• Yet again, it was a very encouraging performance by all squad members against another team from a higher league. All involved played their part well.

What Could Have Been Better:

• Although I believed that we were the stronger team for the majority of the game, we started to tire in the last 20 mins which led to a few lapses in concentration and allowed the opposition to get back into the game.

• We need to improve our communication and challenging against set pieces, predominantly at corners.

Action Points To Work On In Trg & Future Matches:

• Defensive set pieces.

• Match fitness

Man of the Match: Jack Gough. A very good match debut for Jack. He always provided an outlet and remained a constant threat when in possession and when chasing a ball. Through his persistence, strength and jockeying for the ball he forced the opposition’s defender into making a mistake and scoring an own goal, which gave us a well deserved lead.
