After a good start the lads managed to take the lead quite early in the game and in doing so gave the lads the belief they needed. They really took the game to them but unfortunately we didn't extend our lead, narrowly missing our chances.
The fight and passion the boys had shown through the game as they dominated their opponents, quickly changed to frustration as Westbury equalised from a loose ball in the box, late in the first half.
That frustration lead to some totally unacceptable behaviour, punished with a red card, taking us down to 10 players.
This did initially set the lads back as we lost control of the game and we ending up coming in at half time 2-1 down.
We spent half time re organising and listening to the lads they still believed they could win the game.
Every player on the pitch was amazing. You wouldn't of thought they were a player down as they covered every blade of grass and covered for each other.
They soon took back control of the game as they got another 2 goals in the second half, and although there was a few scary moments when we were beaten by the bounce, we could have had a few more in the second half ourselves.
It was very difficult to pick a MOTM as every player put in 100% from start to finish, but I gave it to Richie as he was involved in every goal.
