Weakened NJFC Lose Out


Despite missing 4 players in the midfield area, and the fact we had to play players out of position to accommodate that, this was another score line that didn't fully reflect the game. The lads were the brighter of the two teams in the first half, creating a few chances that we just can't find the finishing touch to. With 5 minutes of the half left we conceded when no pressure was applied to the Westend winger who had all the time in the world to select the head of his striker to put them 1-0 up. HT 0-1

The second half was in the balance until a through punt from the Westend defence saw Matty hesitate, and the striker headed over him and into the empty net. That was the game changer, and heads noticeably dropped. We moved to two up front in the hope of getting back into the game, but this exposed us even more and we conceded a further three goals in the last 20 to give the score an unbalanced look.

To the credit of the lads they never give up, and despite this being our heaviest defeat to date, it never felt like we were getting beat convincingly until we went to 2 up top.

Strong performances from Boothy and Tom, but Dom just edged it today with a powerful performance at full back and up top.
