After last weeks disappointment at Shenstone, Wyrley welcomed Sporting Khalsa on Saturday and then shared a game spoilt by too many cards. Khalsa settled first and began putting early pressure on but the home defence stood strong, The first booking came after only 5 minutes when Dolman was booked for arguing about the distance of a defensive wall. The game settled a bit but then Bowater was booked for what seemed an innocuous challenge. After 25 minutes he was booked again when he bought down a Khalsa player on the halfway line and was subsequently dismissed. Wyrley had to reshuffle and Azza Wright moved to full back. With 10 men Wyrley more than held their own and with half time approaching were looking to go in on level terms, however it was not to be as Khalsa took the lead.
Half time 0-1
No changes were made by Wyrley at the break and neither by the ref as he continued to book Wyrley players. Wyrley though looked the stronger side and equalised when Foster took a free kick from 30 yards out and Brough looked to have got a touch to deflect it past the ‘keeper however he later credited the goal to Foster. 15 minutes later Wyrley took the lead when Moore spotted the goalie off his line and lobbed him from way out. In the meantime Brough went in the book for a foul. Wyrley then sent on Darby for Asa Wright and within a minute he joined the bookings when he retaliated after a terrible late tackle, this also resulted in a rare booking for Khalsa. Wyrley were playing the better game and with full time looming were heading for victory, the ref wasn’t finished though and booked Geldart dor a soft looking push. With 2 minutes to go Khalsa produced the goal of the match, a break down the right was finished with a tremendous shot across Humphries that left him with no chance and Khalsa got a share of the spoils.
