Reserves suffer after Xmas

Flat performance ends in defeat.

Town Reserves looked as if they over done the Xmas celebrations if the performance on Saturday against a bang average Cheltenham Civil Service is anything to go by.
Even with a squad that included last season's top scorer Sam Wines and the experienced Pete Macklin they never really got going at any stage.

The lethargic start by Lydney was not capitalised on by CCS even though they enjoyed most of the possession. In fact it was the exact opposite as Lydney went in front against the run of play. Tom Maxted who was Lydney's main threat on the day, took a pass from Josh Parsons and wriggled his way into the box to fire home. It should have been 2-0 five minutes later when Maxted provided the cross for Sam Wines to scoop over the bar from 6 yards.
Neither side mustered up anymore chances and Lydney went in 1 up at the break.
Any words from Johnny and Rick at half time must have fell on deaf ears as the visitors levelled only 2 minutes in. Their centre forward could only managed to hit keeper Ellis from 5 yards and see the ball deflected for a corner. When the kick came in Town left Holmes in acres of space and he headed home with ease.

With their tails up the Cheltenham side went in front a few minutes later. Midwinter found time and space to fire home at the near post. It was nearly 3-1 shortly after but the assistants flag was up well before Holmes bundled home a rebound off the bar.
It was Maxted who provided a great chance for Town to level when he was knocked down in the area for a penalty. Sam Wines took the kick but his poor day in front of goal was summed up when keeper Elliott Roberts palmed away his weak effort.

Subs Jelly, Powell & Jeremiah failed to ignite any fire into the side and the visitors saw the game out quite comfortably.
Next weeks home clash with Abbeymead is postponed due to a 1st team cup match, so lets hope there is an injection of effort when Falcons rock up on Sat. Jan 19th.
Tom Maxted was Town's MOM, nothing to write home about on the day!!
