Aaron's red was clumsy rather than malicious. He was a bit bull in a china shop but it looked more of a yellow to me.

Their bloke was upset at the non-award of a penalty (he had a very good case) and tried to call the ref to him "so I don't have to shout at you" but obviously the ref wasn't having that so carried on moving away. This upset matey even more so he complained even more forcefully...and that's when the ref had enough and sent him off.

All that aside, this was a good attacking performance, with both full-backs pushing right on and creating channels for our strikers/Da Costa/Bettache to move into. The tempo was very impressive, as was the switching of play which really stretched ETU. The combination play at times was top class (helped by the superb pitch) and there were really powerful surges into the box from Oli and Leon for the penalty and 3rd goal.

Gary pulled a master stroke with his substitutions and change of positions. Murphy from left wing into centre midfield, Bettache to the left (although he did well on the right too) and Da Costa to the right just took the tempo and penetration up a few notches.

In summary; ETU had lots of shots first half (a couple saved by Melvin) but we had some good moments too. Second half, we came out early, looked up for it and were the better side, although I do think we got lucky when not conceding a penalty for Dave's challenge. We scored at vital times, they lost their cool a bit, Ryan headed one off the line at 3-2, Melvin gave a very promising performance in goal....and we deserved to win a really entertaining game.
