Brewood Juniors 1-0 Wyrley Tigers

The game started off at a frenetic pace and it was Brewood Juniors on the front foot. Time and again they found possession all too easy, as the Tigers failed to close down their opponents. The breakthrough goal came in the first half as Brewood’s lively number 9 jinked his way through the Tigers midfield and ran through for a strike on goal which he took very well given that Joe Timmins came off his line to close down. The second half saw the introduction of Kian Cox, Armaan Sohi and Scott Grosvenor-Hayes, but it did little to change the flow of the game. The Tigers one bright moment came midway through the second half when a run and shot from Captain Kian Cox deflected and found its way to Armaan Sohi who saw the keeper come out and smother his shot.

Wyrley Tigers 0-3 Shire Oak Acorns

The second game saw the Tigers take on Shire Oak Acorns, and in an uneventful first half it was the Acorns that took the lead from a penalty awarded for a foul by Kian Cox. It was promptly dispatched past keeper Joe Timmins and it was a disappointing end to the first half as for all the possession the Acorns had enjoyed, they never looked like scoring. The second half started in the worst way possible as the Tigers took an age to clear the ball from a Shire Oak throw in and it just seemed to bypass every player in a Tigers shirt before being touched over the line. More pain was to follow as a long-range strike from an acute angle caught the Tigers defence and keeper by surprise as it rifled into the net. The game had gone and it was no coincidence that the biggest defeat the Tigers have faced this season came with their most lacklustre display.

Thankfully they have a break next weekend which can be used to get back to basics, starting with the teamwork and general workrate, which was visibly missing, that has held them in good stead to date.

The team consisted of: Kian Cox (c), Aran Poonian, Joe Rodda, Scott Grosvenor-Hayes, Lewis Hall, Armaan Sohi, Tom Sutton, Bradley Nutting and Joe Timmins and Cole Askey.
