Moreton Show Superiority
It Took a while to adapt to a very poor play area but we opened the scoring on 12 minutes from a well-placed corner and a precisely headed finish. We continued to press forward and created further opportunities but lacked composure and technique when through on goal. We were well in control of the game and we eventually extended our lead at the 35 minute mark. A terrific run from deep, drawing both central defenders and then playing a well-placed through ball into the path of a well-timed supporting run from our wide left area and a clinical finish.
Half Time 2-0.
The second half started as it finished with Moreton on the front-foot and in control. Another well weighted through ball again split their defensive line, similar movement to our 2nd goal but this time he was taken down by their goalkeeper. The player got up and took a well-placed penalty for our 3rd goal. Although we continued to create further opportunities going forward, we gave away a few silly and petty free-kicks and corners. Putting ourselves under needless pressure the inevitable happened when we failed to deal with a near post corner, score 3-1. Codsall then had a 5min spell were they just hit long balls and tried to apply a little pressure. With 10 min’s remaining we scored a 4th goal, another run from deep taking on defenders and a terrific finish.
Another good all-round and well deserved performance.
