Penn inflict first home loss
Lack of depth causes us a problem
We went into this game v the unbeaten Penn team with only 2 regular defenders available but that’s no excuse for a poor performance to end the year.
We were in good form and still fancied ourselves to get something out of this game.
Penn scores within the first 10 minutes and looked the stronger team but a reckless challenge on Don midway through the half see the away teams midfielder shown a straight red and down to 9 men when another player was sin binned for dissent.
We pushed hard and just before the half ended Ben Lewis lobbed the keeper but the ball rebounded off the crossbar and was cleared.
Half time 0-1
During the interval the obvious was said that the next goal was going to be crucial but it was the away team who pounced on 2 bad mistakes to race into a 3-0 lead within 10 minutes of the restart.
Andy made 3 changes bringing on all the subs available to try turn the game around but the Penn team added 3 more goals to win 6-0 and inflict the worst result on our team so far.
No MOM was rewarded and this result just shows how we need to strengthen our squad in the defensive area if we are going to climb the table.
