Brinsford 2 vs 3 Wyrley Juniors

Without 7 regulars, Wyrley went into the game with the bare 11 and had to battle hard to come away with a win that sees them go joint top of the table, albeit having played two games more.

Wyrley took the lead against the run of play after 10 minutes when Tom Kneller cut in from the right and netted low to the keepers right.

Brinsford equalised and then quickly took the lead before Wyrley immediately bounced back with a well taken goal from Josh Bradley who side footed home after good work from the ever dangerous Nash & Kneller. An enforced tactical change saw Bradley replace Mike Clayton in the middle of the park and his greater physical presence helped Wyrley cope better with the loaded Brinsford midfield. The half -fit Clayton had a fine game playing some excellently weighted through balls on many occasions and also had a header cleared off the line.

10 minutes from half time Kneller netted again to give Wyrley a half time lead.

Half Time 2-3

Wyrley should have increased their lead early in the second half as they made great use of the pace of Nash & Bourke on each flank but time after time they failed to capitalise. As the half progressed Wyrley had to dig deep as Brinsford pressed for the equaliser. However, they never had a shot on target as Wyrley soaked up the pressure and made several defensive blocks to potent their lead.
