Spartans Edged Out By Gloucester
By Chris Atkinson
Swansea lose out in a very competitive game.
Swansea City 1 v 2 Gloucester
After a great win on the road last weekend against Exe, Swansea knew that the same performance was going to be needed against Gloucester who have had an excellent run throughout the 2nd half of the season.
The Spartans couldn't have got off to a better start with Kath Mee taking a chance in the 1st minute smashing the ball through to Amy Burton who put the ball passed the keeper with a deft deflection.
Following the restart, Gloucester began to find their way into the game and after an even period of play the away side found the equaliser from a clinical piece of open play scored y Megan Brazil. Swansea were finding it hard to maintain possession and after continued pressure Gloucester took the lead through a well executed short corner scored by Charlotte McShane.
Swansea found themselves with the opportunity to equalise just before the break but a great shot from SJ Thorburn saw the ball go agonisingly wide.
The Spartans continued to create chances throughout the 2nd half but unfortunately couldn't find the back of the net. Final score 1-2.
Next weekend see's Swansea travel to Olton. With 2 games remaining the team know the importance of bringing home 3 points.
