Match Report from Assistant Coach Stevie Laurie

We knew this game against South, who are an enthusiastic team looking to make finals, was going to be an arm wrestle.
Our boys had a good week on the track and we were looking forward to the contest. The game to be honest was a non-event, we never really got into our groove.
South play a very direct game which made it difficult for the game as a whole to settle, but we still created some fantastic chances, especially in the second half, in the end it wasn't to be.
A real positive for us was keeping a clean sheet against a team that had some quality in the final 3rd. The gaffer had addressed the issue of keeping a clean sheet so from that point of view it was certainly a successful day.
All in all a solid performance from our boys, but as I said it wasn't to be on the day. Even when chances were going a begging the boys as a whole stayed focused and pushed till the end.
Onward to next week where I'm sure the goals will come again after a solid week on the track
