Result – Harriers 4 – Wanderers 4;

So we travelled away this week to play Great Barr Harriers and after beating them in the recent cup match we went into the game with high expectations.

Match Report –
Unfortunately we started the game poorly struggling to get hold of the ball and play our own game. Although we created a number of early chances we were unable to convert them and were shocked when Great Barr took the lead 15mins into the game. After not closing down a throw in a free cross was swung in which Tom didn’t deal with properly and allowed their striker to stab home. This threw us a little and we didn’t stick to what we do best, we started to chase the game to early and lost our shape. This allowed Great Barr to double their lead shortly after, another swinging cross hit the post and was stabbed home once again, 2 nil down! Within 5mins we had pulled one back, following a corner Lewis May picked up the ball inside the box and after beating his man rifled a shot past the keeper. This gave us some confidence and we pushed forward, unfortunately a little to much! Harriers caught us on the break and restored their 2 goal advantage following some good work from their No. 10. Just before half time we pulled another back with Jack Chard latching onto a through ball and finishing neatly 3-2. We still had time to create several more chances, including striking the crossbar from a dipping free kick from Owen Dale. Half time gave us a chance to re-organise and calm everyone down, we needed to stick to our passing and pressing game! We started the second half well pushing forward creating even more chances, this was rewarded with the equaliser shortly after, with Josh Lees forcing his way through to slot into the bottom corner. We we’re now in control and took the lead half way through the half. Good work down our right was calmly finished with great lob-shot by Lewis May. We should have gone on to finish the game off but missed several more chances, plus hitting the post and bar. These misses were soon punished when one big long ball over the top caught us out and allowed Harriers to level once again. 4-4! The final 10 mins was all us and the winner could and should of come, but unfortunately we just couldn’t grab it! Frustrating day all round today and on another day we could have won comfortably.

A few good performances, Lewis May for his 2 goals and another “Man of the Match” performance from Josh Lees, good goal and tireless running up front. On another day he could have had 4 or 5 goals.

Unlucky today, just one of those days. Well done all, still unbeaten and we move on to our next game in 2 weeks time.

Joe, Jason and Ronan.
