Ground Hog Day


Another patched up side, another game of effort, another unlucky sending off and another game with 0 points as Belper run out comfortable 3-0 winners.

Our quest to for our first win of the season did not start well as Belper's Michael Dunne was given an early Christmas present to score on 4 mins.

BU 1-0 EIBS 4 mins

Our cause was not helped on 35 mins when a dubious linesman decision to award Belper a throw resulted in a quick break way and a Samuel Vickers shot from 20 yards gave Marc Radforth no chance.

BU 2-0 EIBS 35 mins

We contained Belper for remainder of the half to make the half time score.

BU 2-0 EIBS HT

The game was over as a contest on 50 mins when Marc Radforth was given a straight red for a tackle that was judged to be outside the penalty area. Again, this seemed dubious as everyone apart from the referee assumed penalty and yellow card.

Credit to the lads as we took the game to Belper and had a couple of chances to make it 2-1 but Samuel Vickers made the game safe on 83 minutes when he headed home after a flowing move.

This made the final score.

BU 3-0 EIBS

Summary

We can't fault the players for effort and we dust ourselves down and go again next Saturday at home to Arnold
