BSTFC Reserves vs Old Sodbury Reserves

By

Hornets back to winning ways

The JC was unplayable after our fixture against Iron Acton last week however manager Burch was able to arrange a pitch at St Bedes on the 3G surface. There was a strong cross wind and rain but there could be no complaints about the surface. Old Sodbury reserves were the opposition.

Here is how the Hornets lined up:-

Potter (J), Williams (D), Amin, Pyett, Collis-Pritchard, Sykes, Dawes, Cornock, Whiting, Platts and Hussain with Hobbs, Potter (C) and Williams (J) on the bench.

The game started off in a steady fashion after the insight from Collis-Pritchard about pacing ourselves on this big pitch and holding our shape for longer periods of the game.

Cornock and Dawes were doing well to spread the ball around the pitch, Sykes and Whiting were regularly involved bringing Platts and Hussain into the action.

It was a long range shot from Hussain which caught the opposition keeper unaware and he fumbled into his own net but it was just the start we were looking for.

It was soon 2-0 as some good work from Whiting and Hussain put the ball towards the edge of the box, Sykes burst in out of nowhere and rounded the defender and then slotted the ball into the left corner.

It should have been three as a lovely ball into the box from Sykes was somehow missed from close range by Whiting.

The opposition number 10 was a constant threat but between the BSTFC defenders they generally handled him well and kept chances to a minimum.

Half time came and it was a good half although there was still some improvements that the team discussed like using the space and communicating better.

There were few chances but a break away from Old Sodbury saw Williams (D) beaten by the winger, Amin went to cover and as Williams made it back inside the number 10 went round the outside of Amin and shot powerfully towards the near post and Potter (J) couldn't keep out the hard shot.

Williams (D) was substituted as Williams (J) came on in his place.

BSTFC could have gone into their shell but they kept pressing forwards and Hobbs came on to provide some more protection in the middle as Dawes was substituted, Dawes was unlucky to not get an assist when he played in Sykes just prior to this as well.

Potter (C) also came on for Whiting and made a fantastic block to keep the score at 2-1.

Old Sodbury pushed forward but the Hornets shut up shop and the game finished 2-1.

It probably should have been a better scoreline for the Hornets but to hold out for the 2-1 was a good result.

Burch awarded Cornock the MOTM after another fine midfield performance showing calmness in possession and using the ball well.

Highridge next week.
