A draw was a fair result for this game with neither team really stamping any authority on the game. The match was really affected by the wind which made passing difficult, even passing on the ground was being affected by the wind. The game was played mainly in midfield with both teams playing with the defence high up the pitch and this made it very congested and difficult for either team to get a real grip of the game.
