Re: Leatherhead 5-2!!!
Good game to watch and we were worthy winners after a very strong second half, although Leatherhead did muff a couple of big chances too.
Leon was almost unplayable at times showing huge strength and composure for his second goal. That's the best I've seen him play for a long time. He was brilliant.
Dave had a quiet game in midfield but an eventful one in the Leatherhead penalty area! Apart from his two headers, he hit the post and put the rebound over the stand.
Leo ticked the midfield over nicely, Shorty hoovered up and passed well (and nearly scored one on one), Maz buzzed "between the lines" and Taggs gave us the energy and positional nous on the left that we've often lacked this season.
In balance though, I think it's fair to say that Leatherhead weren't the best and I still think we're going to have to defend a bit better in the coming months. But if we're going to be a high scoring team then I won't be complaining because yesterday's and the East Thurrock away game were hugely entertaining!
Really enjoyable day out and a pleasure to watch the lads play some good football on a superb pitch.
