- Prestwich home.. Cup
Second cup game for us and everyone was feeling confident after last weeks brilliant performance..
Sadly our performance didn't match last weeks. The first half especially was very poor. Lack of passion, fight, communication and again poor defending and finishing. It was like a different team from last week.
Credit to Prestwich, they were well up for it and this is the best I've seen them play. Maybe we underestimated them and thought it would be easy. And Prestwich certainly made us suffer. A solitary strike from matthew was the only highlight from a first half that Prestwich controlled. 4-1 down at half time was what we deserved.
Second half we reminded the team about last weeks comeback and a goal straight from kick off gave us the belief we could do it again, but unfortunately as we looked for goals Prestwich caught us on the break. We we're much better second half and showed more fight, and with new boy Kyle on the pitch we looked very dangerous going forward. But we never quite got control of the game and were never closer than one goal behind. 2 second half goals from the impressive Kyle, another for matthew and a very well deserved goal from Mikey who always gives his all.
Final score 5-6
Very poor first half, much better second half. Leaving us with a must win game on Sunday.
Matthew x 2
Kyle x 3
Mikey x 1
