10 man Colts hold firm

First game gets a point

Colts had to hold out for 42 minutes after losing Curtis to a Red Card.

We had dominated the first half, with Curtis the best player on the pitch, and it changed the dynamics if the game.

We started 442, against a big and physical Queens Park team, a minutes silence was held before the game in memory
of QP stalwarts Martin Ford and Darren 'Coco' Roberts.

There were even exchanges early in the game, but we soon started to create the better chances, Kev Valentine cutting in
from the right, but delaying his shot too long when in a good position. Curtis then sent a superb pass over the top, Dan
Woosey's volley was well saved by Chris Woodcock.
But on 24 minutes we put KEV VALENTINE clear and he fired high and in off the post to give us the lead.
Soon after it should have been 2 but a shot deflected off a defender and came back off the underside of the bar.
Then just before half time a Valentine header struck the post.
So we went in at half time 1-0 up but it should have been more.
On 48 minutes it all went wrong for us, our player was clearly fouled, but the referee gave nothing, and a cross/shot
was diverted in to his own net by Luke Walker. Then Curtis was shown a Red for complaining about the incident.
QP now started to dominate as we re-shaped things, but the defence was under pressure as the ball kept coming straight
back. They missed chances as the score stayed level. But on 85 minutes we could have won the game. Kev Valentine worked
a good position, fired an angled shot which came back off the inside of a post, and young Harry Brown smashed the rebound
only to find a QP defender on the line to deny him, this fell to Harry Edwards who shot wide. Our bad luck turned in the very last
minute as visiting striker Shane Prince found himself clear with only keeper Aled to beat, but badly screwed his shot wide when
he should have scored.
So we set off our season with a point, and there is a long tough road ahead, but we are in a far better position to cope this time.
Curtis and Fraser gave us a much need physical prescence in centre mid, Curt should have been Man of the Match if he had lasted,
but it goes to Luke Walker despite the own goal!
