Althoug the the crowd was, as some estimated, approx. 360 I quite enjoyed the game this afternoon.
A well taken penalty from Greggors open the scoring after a hand ball decision was given against FGR. It seemed to skim off his head as he went up and the ball made contact with his outstretched arm.
FGR came back into the game with a well taken strike from around the outside of the area that gave Danny no chance from where he was standing.
I always felt that Canvey could go up a gear but they never did, although Canvey still had a lot of posession.
Second half was very entertaining.
I was so pleased when JK (we have two of them now) brought the ball down from his chest and struck the ball sweetly into the back of the net - not a narrow angle but still needed some concerntration. Johnny Keeling was later made man of the match and I wouldn't disagree with that. He seemed to kick start the second half with that goal and Canvey did seem to up the tempo.
Danny Potter yet again made a fantastic one on one save - but other than that I don't recall him having that much to do.
Numerous chances in the second half - how did Greggors miss that header at the far post?
I didn't rate Greggors in the last home game - he won headers but they had no real direction. Today I felt he had a really strong game. He controlled the ball and used it far better. Good display from the rest of the players on the pitch.
Held my breath at the end when FGR had that corner and we seemed to scramble it away - only for JKennedy to stick it in te back of the net from a short Greggors pass - ruled offside.
All in all, a thoroughly entertaining game.
Only weird thing was Cowans taking two of the free kicks - what was all that about?
