Brook's lose at Abbey Rangers,

After their hard won point on Bank Holiday Monday against NGU the Brook travelled to Abbey Rangers narrowly losing 2-1

Abbey Rangers started the game looking much the better side & on 21 minutes opened the scoring when from a pretty ordinary cross Elliott Firth unmarked in the area headed past Cameron Kennedy in the Brook goal.
2 minutes later the home side increased their lead with another headed goal when a corner was headed back across goal & again an Abbey player was left unmarked,this time Vitor Monteiro who had the simple task of heading into the Brook net.
The Brook immediately hit back,playing some neat passing football & in the 27th minute got back into the match when Dean McDonnell made a fine run into the home area beating 3 players before firing past Brace in the home goal.2-1

The Brook were by now looking the better team & on 30 minutes a fine lob by Dean McDonnell beat the keeper but went narrowly over the crossbar.

Then within the space of 10 minutes the Brook had 2 goals disallowed for offside with Dean McDonnell being the unlucky player both times,so the score when the half-time whistle went remained at 2-1 to Abbey Rangers.

The 2nd half started very similar to the 1st with the home side taking early control of the game but unable to penetrate a solid Brook defence in which Mateus Kaczmarek was excelling.

As the match wore on the Brook were working hard for an equalizer but suffered a blow when on 56 mins striker Lyndon Bradley was injured & replaced by Harry Carter.
In the 65th minute a good cross from Dan McDonald found his brother Dean but his header just went wide of the post.

10 minutes later it took a good save from the Brook's Cameron Kennedy to stop the home side increasing their lead.
Although they kept on pressing in the last 10 minutes the Abbey defence held firm & the match ended with the home side taking the 3 points in a 2-1 win.

The Brook have now played 6 league games winning 1,drawing 1 & losing 4 & although the Brook have lost 3 of those games by the narrow margin of 2-1 they are already finding themselves slipping down the table.With our next 3 league games being against 3 sides who have made good starts to the new season it's important we start picking up some points as soon as possible,a settled team would help.
