“Long throw from Power; Darikwa, Sir Ben-esque, heads, top left, stunning save by Richards.
Mclean corner, lands at the feet of Keane who pile drives it bottom right. What a save from Richards.
Inch perfect free kick taken by Power, Humphrys thunderbolts it. Richards tips it over the bar.
Yanic Lang barges his way down the left channel, recovers from a foul knowing he’d never get a free kick, a dainty dink to the far post Watts, Zaki like, whacks it on the half volley. Richards gets an amazing reflex save.
Magennis is through, dinking and dancing with Nzogbia in his mind is last man. Fearlessly Richards is out of the goal, dives at his feet like a starving cheetah; what a save.
Naylor remembers Figeroa and takes a quick free kick into space, Whatmough plays a one two with Edwards is tempered by his FairTradeSouthAfrican Sauvignon from the CoOp, who tries to beat Richards but there is no chance.
Some how 2 goals were scored.
MoM David Richards”.

Solid vital win borne more out of sheer character and desire than actual performance on the night against a desperate team with nothing to play for other than their own pride.
They played out of their skin as best they could after picking up very early on that the ref was card ‘miserable’ rather than card ‘happy ‘ so the game never flowed due to all the stoppages and scrappy play.
James Mclean was easily the man of the match and his character and desire drove us on to the win which gives a fantastic 5 point cushion now going into the game on Friday.
Win there and it could be 8 points clear on saturday morning so a massive incentive for us to go over there in our favoured mode as underdogs for the win.16 February 2022 at 2:32 pm #195453MR BrownbillPlayer

I personally think we can sneak it there. They’ve done well but certainly rode their luck in last 2 or3 games. Has anyone any idea what punishments if any they’ve been handed for their 3 recent spectator misdemeanours ? Particularly the most recent where the knob kicked the ball away.16 February 2022 at 5:32 pm #195455EdwardsPlayer

I think Goalsgalore, your report is for the same game that the referee and West Stand linesman went to. Which was a totally different game to the one we all saw!
Look forward to the next one
