That was a good game and whilst we bested the first half, Cols will feel unlucky not to come away with a point. That said, we are a different proposition than last term and we seem to have found some grit, determination and a willingness to play some attacking football. Overall a much more enjoyable experience than last season and with gates around 450 its a good time to get up to 3rd in the league. Ground looks fab so well done all to get us back on the field and in such good shape all round !
A dominant first half which arguably lulled us into a false sense of security. A very good first half in which we played some good football and deserved a 2 goal lead without Chris having a save to make. The 2nd half Colls had to have a go and whilst they huffed and puffed with a lot of possession never really troubled us too much. If Wardle's header goes in it's 3-0 and easy street but within a minute it's 2-1 after a sloppy goal and a nervy last 10 minutes but, I thought a well earned and deserved win.
A tough game which I thought we deservedly came out with all the points, the team work ethic is great and we are as mentioned earlier a much more attacking threat now. Atherton gave it a good go second half but without the quality to finish, the Witton defence was excellent and my MOM was Josh Wardle. UTA
