We faced Altona Magic on Friday night at home. Now let’s put it in context, due to the league position of both teams this was a 6 point game. We still have clear ambition to play finals but we needed to make sure that we didn’t slide any closer to the other end of the table.
The boys were made aware of the importance of the game. I feel the performance reflected that on the night.
Both teams started well with a few chances going both ways . As the game progressed we started to look very comfortable and grew in confidence.
At half time the gaffer reminded the boys to continue to play with exactly that, to be brave. There were some great individual finishes for the goals but it was a real team effort in obtaining the chances in the first place.
This was a huge step in the right direction against a team with a proud history that had just come off a good win. We knew they would bring 100 percent effort but we were too focused on the night. Very pleasing to see a united group for the whole 90 mins. Onward and upward from here.
