Unlucky to lose a game we probably deserved to draw against an enterprising Cambridge City.

 

Our visitors showed why they're near the top of the table, but we stuck at it and rode out a particularly tough ten minutes before the break, before taking the lead in the 55th when a corner was flick headed across goal for Fish to head into the top corner. If only we could have held onto the lead for a bit longer it might have changed the game's character, but a 20 yard beauty curling away from Tyler and into the far corner from Ross Paterson on the hour was followed immediately by a through ball lobbed in from the edge of the box by James Hall. We did enough and had enough chances to level, and we've played far worse and won this season. 

 

One or two interesting match-ups in the game, especially the riveting contest between Fish and City's right winger Nathan Olukanmi. With Russ still out and Will Boye having left this week (along with Yayah, the latter moving to Uxbridge) we welcomed Mitchal Gough back for the first of an apparent three-match loan. Mitch was commanding, very unlucky to see a header brilliantly cleared off the line, and my man of the match.

Ed, as you say, we had good chances that weren’t put away.

I forgot to mention - not a dirty game at all, and it flowed very well, but interesting to see the ref call both captains over at different times of the game to listen when he was telling one of their players he was was one more foul or moan away from a booking.

We had our chances but fluffed our lines when it mattered , would love to see Mitchell sign for the rest of the season as he is just what the side needs at the back and he looks dangerous at the other end at set pieces.
Midfield looks a worry to me , against the better teams playing 2 against their 3 is difficult as we get out played and end up losing.
Ben if your reading this go back to 433 with Kam and Jack either side of who you choose up top. Hahaha.
