Big worry about Lee Boylan I hope it won't be a long term injury. It was a disgraceful challenge from their number 15 which somehow went unpunished by the ref.
It was hard to pick a man of the match tonight they were all so good. Wardy and Cowan at the back hardly gave their forwards a sniff tonight. Their only goal came form a mistake by Potter who fumbled a free kick. He more than made up for it second half with a brilliant save.
Great touch from Jeff King to comeover to the fans and say thanks for coming.
The only other blemish is why do certain Canvey fans have to be constantly moaning at the ref? Yes it was a disgrace that he didnt book the player for the tackle on Boylan but it seems at times that some Canvey fans are more interested in slagging the ref off than getting behind the team. Lets lay off the ref a bit and really get behind the team The players will certainly appreciate it.
I thought that tonights ref wasnt as bad as some of the refs we have had this season, at least he let the game flow. Full marks to both the linesmen they were spot on tonight. One of the linesman flagged for offside against Stevenage but the ref didnt see him and played down. Cowan brought down one of their players and the ref gave a free kick just outside the area and was about to book Cowan but saw the linesman's flag and had to give a freekick for Canvey and let Cowan's challenge go. The other linesman gave a penalty for Canvey which the ref missed.
We showed tonight we can live in the conference. We thrashed one of the better teams. Roll on Saturday and hopefully our first home win.
