Really disappointing if predictably so tonight.
First half we were well on top, created enough chances to win three games in the first half hour, Aaron side footing a penalty to the keeper and having another side foot cleared off the line, maybe should have put his foot through both, Goldy looked lively and had a few pot shots as well, then in first half injury time their first shot hits a defender and loops in via a ridiculous deflection. How's your luck?
Second half we were very very poor, and their late second goal was more than merited, an awful first touch by one of the centre halves (think it was Kirby but unsure from the far end) saw their centre forward have an easy tap in.
Dave was sent off in injury time after a late aerial challenge poleaxed their number 5 as their keeper caught the ball, he was late and it was a probable booking, nothing malicious in it. Their 3 took exception to this and kicked Dave in the back, aimed two or three punches at him as well. Dave did retaliate and throw a punch back in the melee that followed. The referee came over, didn't bother to consult the linesman, showed Dave a straight red card, and didn't even have a word with any of their players. Straight after this, we knocked a long ball over the top for Leon to chase, their 4 came over to shepherd the ball back to the keeper, and went down like a sack of shit holding his face as if Leon had hit him. Thankfully this attempt at conning the referee into sending another of our players off didn't work, but it summed up their cynical, time wasting approach to the 2nd half.
Credit where it's due, they deserved their victory, the keeper particularly played well (and timewasted even better) but we were really not very good after the first half hour, when the game should have been done and dusted.
