Coventry City University 1 – Leamington 6

Leamington went away to a struggling Coventry City University team this week but made hard work of breaking the students down on a poor surface and in fading light.

The game got to a slow start with the main features a rally of counter attacks which were well defended with by both teams, however a thunderbolt reverse stick shot from Pat Law sparked Leamington into life. From that point Leamington dominated the half with two more goals in quick succession by Joe Cooper. The performance up to half time continued strongly with quick, effective distribution in and around the attacking D with the University keeper making a number of smart stops on the line and Leamington not able to capitalise from short corners. The mood was only slightly dented going into half time by a poor goal conceded after not clearing from a deep defensive position and a green card for the normally impeccably behaved Simon Round.

The second half again got off to a slow start and Leamington unusually began to struggle to distribute effectively around the midfield, a hallmark of the season so far. Again it was up to Pat Law to deliver with a top of the range finish into the top corner after beating three players. This again triggered a period of Leamington pressure, culminating in a short corner leading to a penalty flick which Sam Scannell duly slotted into the bottom corner of the goal. A rash tackle by Rob Palmer and consequent yellow card sin binning gave Coventry City a chance to get back into the game and they piled on the pressure, however centre back and Man of the Match Jay Keatinge held the defensive structure together brilliantly as Leamington weathered the storm. The remainder of the game was played out reasonably comfortably with both teams seemingly content with the result, however it was up to Luke Lovejoy to have the final say after a disciplined performance standing in up front for absent forwards. A silky dribble to take it past three defenders left him with just the keeper to beat and a top corner finish ensured that Leamington finished the game on a positive note. Next week Leamington will look to continue their strong form while hosting Coventry & North Warks 2nds at Warwick University (12pm push back).
