On: Saturday, 08 Feb 2020
Venue: Away

We were going into the game of 2 wins. At the start of the game we were getting used to the pitch. In the first 5 mins they got an early goal, it came for a mistake playing it short at the back. After the first goal we had not learned from our mistakes playing it at the back and conceded another goal from the back. After that goal we had a free kick on the edge of the box, it was taken by Rhys Watson it was curled in top left but a superb saved denied the goal making it a corner. There 3rd goal was a mistake when we knocked it long losing the ball making us concede another goal. At half time the score was 3-0 to Sandbach.

Going into the the second half we were focusing on our transition and getting the ball wide.

The second half we were trying to improve. It was a quick start from Sandbach putting pressure on our defence. There 4th goal was what we thought was offsides, but the ref said play on and they scored. There was a close chance with a header from Rob Stanton off a corner, which the keeper saved. There 5th came from the defence pushing up too high to the edge of the box, then Sandbach played the ball over the defence with 3 offside player, we also thought this goal was off side but the ref thought different. We played nice 1 touch football and got a few free kicks at the back, but we had not got enough height on the ball. There last goal came from a though ball which split the defence, letting Sandbach’s attack get a shot off with an amazing save from Alfie but the rebound fell into Sandbach’s feet giving them an easy tap in. The final score was 6-0 to Sandbach.

MOTD goes to Jeff Lam
