Overall I don't think we had the greatest of games. The Ryman League style 'hoof it up the park' doesn't work at this level. We got bogged down in midfield or got the ball straight back in our own goal area. Luckily, Stevenage played the same sort of game, making most of the match stagnant and boring. When we did break lose, we seemed in control when we played our own 'passing game'. Time and again we got crosses into the oppositions box, creating chances, if not finishes. The 'long ball game' doesn't suit Manny, he's far to short and will rarely, if ever win headers played forward to him. He wasn't out played today, we cancelled him out of the game ourselves. Roy would of been far more suitable for this style of game.
Even after their fluky goal we were still bogged down in midfield, so it wasn't until Moussa came on that we found the key to open up Stevenage, play the ball on the ground.
Andy said in his after match interview that Moussa doesn't generally go for goal, that he usually sets people up, so now we've opened up another source of goals. Another player with two goals to his name, well done Moussa, inspired play.
Another win, up another place and Hereford don't seem unbeatable.
See you all next Saturday.
