This was the first disappointing match of the season for Merton as they never really got into the game. The first half was uneventful with no clear-cut chances for either team as Motspur Park consistently tried to get the ball over the top and their strikers in behind. The only real shot for Merton was Fareed鈥檚 shot, set up by some nice passing but it went over the bar. After half-time it got worse for Merton as Motspur park scored two goals with no reply. The first came from a throw in looped over the defenders that caught Merton off guard and their player slotted it past Milo. The second came close to the end of the match when Merton was pushing for an equalizer, another calm finish from a Motspur Park player. They frequently won the midfield battle and were first to every loose ball, including all 50/50 tackles.

Unfortunately for Merton none of our players were on their game and the passing was often sloppy and rushed. Overall it was a frustrating game that the team will wish to put behind them. Man of the match goes to Justin who came in at an unfamiliar position of right back and did a great job. Hopefully a good reaction will come in the next match against AFC Ewell.
