Difficult result to take this week, especially with the game evenly poised 1-1 with 8 minutes to play!

A solid start to the game and it was a close game between two evenly matched teams, with chances being at a minimum throughout the first half.

A couple of close chances for Hanworth and they took their first clear opportunity and took a 1-0 lead. We carried on battling and creating space but could not find the opportunities to score a goal.

Solid performance continued into second half, creating marginally more chances but that was the theme of the game. Limited chances throughout, it seemed like it had 1-0 written all over it!

We managed to grab an equaliser from Jake D and looked like we could nick a winner. However, another sloppy goal gave them a 2-1 lead.

Our heads dropped and gifted them 2 further goals, leaving with a 4-1 defeat. It was not that score line, a much closer game than the score shows.

Heads up and go again
