Shifnal 0 Alvechurch 2
My opinion only.
The worst possibly result for The Town, was Alvechurch losing 5 on Saturday at Hitchen, with there management team looking for a reaction, which they got, played at a high tempo pressing “Town” right around the pitch, they were very sharp, won any loose balls, and stopped out 2 full backs from getting forward, a big part of our game, their forwards were pretty Rapid and were a handful, but never created that many clear cut chances until the goal, when their forward reacted quicker to a loose ball in the box and fired in from close range, the fact that we stayed in the game was a credit to the lads, and maybe should of equalised with a 1 on 1, and maybe even take the lead when having a free header in the box, f irst half was really all about them, but we were always in the game at 1 nil.
2nd half was a different story with us getting at them, managing to get width into our game, and they never looked so comfortable, we had an header just whistling over the bar, and fought tooth and nail for an equaliser, but they stood firm, their goalie handled well, and as is usually the case we got caught with a sucker punch, when they pinch a 2nd goal, which was really game over as they saw the game out for a deserved Victory.
Sometimes you have to hold your hand up and say we were beaten by the better side on the night, and being 3 leagues above you would expect that.
But fair play to the lads they never at any stage gave up on it and were a credit to the club, now its recovery time ready for Cradley Town away and then Bridgnorth part 2 on Tuesday night at The Acoustafoam, this when a quality squad comes into it’s own.Well done Danny & Andy, now let’s get this league won (again).
Thanks for the Entertainment.
