The Swans Daren Dykes on the teams last 2 games..

2 years ago By Wayne Harmes

Saturday we travelled to Desborough & Tuesday Evening we hosted Holmer Green in the B & B Trophy Semi....

Newport Pagnells Daren Dykes:
" Saturday we travelled to Desborough missing 6 players & only having 2 players on the bench. Not a great start to an afternoon where we knew we would have to be at the races from the off to get maximum points.
We didnt play well at all today in all honesty. The work rate was there but we struggled to get the ball down & play on a very bobbly pitch. The first half wasnt great from either side. A few half chances but that was it really. The first 15 minutes of the second half we could of been 3-0 down if it wasn't for some poor finishing & great goalkeeping from Joe who had a superb game. This spurred us on a bit & We ended up winning 2-0 with goals coming from Edgey & Fazel. Im sure Desborough would have been gutted not to get anything from the game which in fairness I think they deserved something. The most pleasing thing to take from today is that although we didn't play well, we dug in & got the result.

Tuesday evening we hosted Holmer Green from the South Midlands Prem in the semi final of the Berks & Bucks Senior Trophy. We played them earlier in the season in the FA Cup which we won 6-2. We had them watched & knew it was a completely different team & they was in good form in the league. First half we battled well but struggled to get a foothold in the game. Ozzy kept us in it really pulling off 2/3 great saves. Second half was a different story. We had the better of the chances & controlled the half in large spells. We finally got our goal in the 84th minute through Dom Lawless who was superb.
So we now have a cup final to look forward to. This coming Sat we are away at Boston. Come on you swans!"
