Wilson wins it with a late strike
Bottom of the table North Somercotes nearly earn a draw
This week we travelled to face bottom of the table North Somercotes who of late have had some better results than what the table suggests. Manager Scott had to make changes due to injuries ( Nicholson ) and work commitments ( Glover and McKenzie ) and opted to change the formation as well going for a 3-4-2-1. Thompson, Bryant and Flello the players returning to the starting line up.
The game got under way and Somercotes started the game well and could have had an early lead but for a clearance off the line by CJ PEART
. To be fair a boring first half with both teams having half chances and Somercotes probably being a little better. Half time 0-0.
The second half started and continued the same, so in the 60th minute Boro changed the formation to 4-4-2 with Peter Farrell
coming on for James Bryant
( who was having a good game, purely a tactical change ). Things did look a little better for Boro but Somercotes continued to frustrate and create chances. In the 84th minute Boro thought they had taken the lead, Skipper Bradley Elliott
striking the ball from 28 yards out, only to see the ball hit the woodwork, but as the ball went down behind the keeper to appeared to be over the line and bounced back into play ( just like Frank Lampard's ). Brad arm aloft ran away ( just like Alan Shearer ) only to see the play continuing behind him as the side line celebrated. NO GOAL. Feeling robbed Boro went all out attack and in the 88th minute got the goal they had craved all afternoon. Bradley Elliott
got into the area and as he turned was fouled, Penalty, NO, as the ball bounced away Jack Wilson
reacted the quickest and before the referee could blow the ball was in the back of the net. 0-1 to Boro and the referee let the advantage and the goal stand, much to the delight of the Boro bench. Moment s later the final whistle was blown and for the second week in a row Boro had snatched something at the end of the game.
The official Lucarly's Man of the Match this week going to Lewis Flello
who had a good game at Centre Back .
So now for my thoughts, I had a feeling today would be a tough game, North Somercotes have been one of the top teams over the past few years and they are better than results of late. It was important today to get a clean sheet, do that and you have a great chance of winning the game, I know this team will score goals and today I was proved right.
Next week it a must win game away at Tetney Rovers in the league, 2:00 kick off. hopefully we will see you there in what is sure to be a close game. #OneBoro
