Another frustrating day for town


A 4th successive league defeat against a well organised GNG side who just about deserved the points.

At any level of the game, football comes down to fine margins and today was no different as Ellistown wasted enough chances to win 2 games.

As our avid readers and loyal supporters will confirm, the lack of a goal scoring edge is costing Town and dragging the club into a relegation battle.

GNG started the game well and should have been ahead before Karum Shanker slotted home a penalty on 13 mins.

While results are not going our way, you can't fault the effort of the team who went toe to toe with a streetwise GNG side who had that extra edge in attack.

We should have at been on level terms or in front before GNG made the game safe on 42 mins through Thomas Reid.

The half-time whistle went with the score.

EFC 0-2 GNG

With nothing to lose, Town threw caution to the wind in the 2nd half and went on the attack but a serious of bad luck, excellent goalkeeping and poor finishing kept town at bay.

GNG were always dangerous on the break but were also content to see the game out and that they did to claim the 3pts with a 2-0 victory.

Summary

15 goals in 13 games confirms where our problems are. Only Desford with 14 games have scored less.

Today proved we can create chances and with games around the corner against top 4 sides we need to start converting these chances.
