Brinsford 1 v 2 Wyrley Juniors

Wyrley completed the double over Brinsford as they remain joint top of the league.

The first half was fairly even with Wyrley playing the better football without really testing the keeper but Brinsford created the better chances and had James Goddard to thank for keeping the scores level. Hayden Nash cleared a goal bound header off the line from a Brinsford corner whilst at the other end he had a penalty appeal waved away before Dan Bourke made space, only to hit a well struck shot over the bar.

Half Time 0-0

As last week Wyrley were able to make an impact from the bench. Within minutes of coming on Matt Moseley was able to stretch the defence and set up Hayden Nash to beat a couple of players and hit a low left shot into the corner of the net. Wyrley doubled their lead when Tom Kneller broke up play on the half way line and passed to Josh Griffiths. Josh released Matt Moseley down the right flank who then advanced to the bye line before calmly pulling the ball back into the path of Griffiths who had continued his run to lash the ball home.

Wyrley missed a host of clear chances to seal the game and could have been made to pay but for the excellence of Goddard & in particular one superb point blank save when Brinsford had already pulled one goal back. However, Wyrley hung on to continue their fine run of form, now having won 11 from 13 games this season, including the last 6.
