Dorking Last Night
A fairly comfortable win as the scoreline suggests. It was pretty scrappy in places but we were very slick and clinical when it counted.
The ref never really got on top of a fair amount of niggle/whining (both teams) and it was tetchy all the way through. Gary wisely took Casey off at HT because he was on a yellow (for a rugby tackle) and looked likely to get another. The red card incident was at the other end and I wouldn't know what it was all about apart from alleged violent conduct.
Tom wasn't really called on to make a save of note and for the most part we kept Dorking out of our penalty area. The defence looked good last night and was well shielded by the midfield.
I'm pretty sure Nico doesn't want to rest because he's in the form of his life and his goals/performances are attracting scouts from all over. I fully expect him to leave in January but hope we manage to secure the sort of fee for him that makes a difference to our well-being. If a good offer comes through, there's no way we ought to stand in his way, although he would obviously be a massive loss to the team.
The way Zak Joseph is playing, I wouldn't be surprised if we get offers for him too. He set up two of the goals last night with his driving runs into the box (lovely deft cross for Corcoran and a fantastic low driven effort for the own goal). His goal tally of 12 is excellent for a winger (and It's only December). Plus he can also cross and attack from either wing....which was what he did for those two goals last night. If I were a scout for a league club, I'd definitely be recommending Joseph and Muir for further attention.
