With a good Eleven to start the game and a strong bench we were very hopeful of getting a result against a high flying Marlborough team, once again we started brightly with lots of positive attacking football but were undone by a long ball from their goal keeper which we allowed to bounce before running through to their forward to tuck away to make it one nil, Callum hit a
great shot but we all watched it strike the base of the post and come back into play.
Playing three at the back with Bondy, Aaron and Ben we managed to deal with the threat of Marlboroughs centre forward who has already scored a lot of goals, Bondy was back to his commanding best in the air, we carried on playing nice neat attacking football and we're sure we would be rewarded with at least a point if not three, this wasn't to be and with us pushing more players forward we were caught out on the counter attack and Marlborough scored a further 3 goals in the last 10 minutes to make the final score 4-0 which was very very flattering considering the way we had played.
The positive we took from the game was that we were still trying to play and score in the last few minutes of the game.
Wednesday night we have Melksham reserves at home, here's hoping we can put in a good performance and get the three points, or to be honest against them the three points anyway will be great.
