Match Report

GS: Tom Brammer 46-F

CARDS: GREEN: James Legg, Adam Fletcher

After a good warm up and all feeling positive we went into the game hoping for a good result and meaty performance!
I think it is fair to say no one had a great start, letting in 3 goals within the first 7 mins! (Editor's Note: known as the "Muzzy" effect, two trademark PC goals by former Sheffield Hallam M1s centre forward Will Musgrave, the first a powerful flick and the second a lifted reverse shot from the left top of the circle. Muzzy also had an assist on their third goal.)
However, after a stormy first 15 we picked it up and managed to improve slightly, and began to threaten their D! Post ups were better and the distribution began to improve so in the last 15 minutes of the first half we looked dangerous...
We didn't expect to be 3-0 down at half time, all of us in shock more then anything!
But we knew we needed to pick it up and pull our socks up!
We began the second half well however the opposition set a good high press and managed to score 3 more, with tackling from the highest order.
However, an inspiring piece of play from the defence to midfield allowed a cross to be fired in, which Tom Brammer got his stick on as he came flying in, in  front of the keeper to bag us a goal back!
Sadly this was too late in the game to inspire a comeback, and it finished 6-1!
All round not a great day at the office with things to work on! However, we will bounce back and show that a heavy defeat does not affect our confidence or our league objectives. Roll on next week with a win :)
