Revenge Mission for Linnets
Published - 21st Dec 19

....it gave us the opportunity to make it three games unbeaten against the leaders.


However, just a couple of weeks after winning 4-2 at the same place, it was a different story this time around as the hosts ran out deserved 3-1 winners.

 

A mix-up between defender and keeper saw the hosts take an early lead.

 

And we found ourselves 2-0 down at half-time and never really threatened the home goal.

 

A long-range third – another which should have been prevented – made it virtually game over, although Spencer Taylor did manage to lob a neat consolation near the end for his first goal as a Doughboy.

 

There are a few things to add as a caveat to this defeat though.

 

Last Monday against Bedford Town we had a dreadful 20 minutes but grew into the game.

 

This time the opposition had watched the videos of the two previous games against us and `did a number on us` and did it well to be fair.

 

But what wasn`t good was the help they received by a dreadful official who had no control of the game whatsoever and any 50/50 decision went the way of the hosts.

 

One really nasty elbowing incident on Jack Cawkill-Robins he reckoned he “didn`t see” and there was a clear-cut foul on Spencer Taylor seconds before they went upfield and made it 2-0.

 

We can`t blame the referee totally for this defeat but it seemed King`s Lynn were determined to beat us today, by hook or by crook!

 

It certainly wasn`t the sort of game that this old man wanted just before Christmas after the mini stroke!

 

But I am confident we will bounce back after a bit of a break.

 

However, strange as it may seem, sometimes you can have too many players and the rules of the Junior Premier League are that ALL players should get at least 50% of the game – or as close as possible to that.

 

And we had to make changes for changes sake, whilst they only had 12 so could keep their shape and momentum.

 

Given the traumatic summer we endured though, I am happy to have too many players as it didn`t look as though I`d be saying that in August!

 

Have a great Christmas.
