MATCH REPORT: Churchdown Panthers Whites 1-2 Wotton Rovers
Sunday 29th January 2017
Sometimes in football you jsut don't get what you deserve. We dominated this game and were the better team, just walked away with a result that doesn't reflect that.
We fell behind in the opening minute. Some good work on the right, a good cross and well volleyed home at the far stick. But we got level on 9 minutes, when a Jonathan Whiting corner was headed home by Jakub Kroliczak. We spent the rest of the half testing the keeper from range, and getting in close for chances in the box, but just couldn't find the net.
We lost Tyler Jones early in the second half following a sickening clash with the Wotton keeper. But the momentum was still with Panthers, and we created on a regular occurence. Good work down the sides, good balls out of midfield. Just none of the chances fell nicely for any players in the box. With a couple of minutes left and Panthers keen to make their pressure count, we lost the ball on the edge of the opposition box. With our midfield pressing high, Wotton were able to break and finish 1 on 1.
A dissapointing result, for what was a good performance by everyone concerned. Plenty of energy and up for a tough battle. Our player of the match was Alex Fulford
