Thursday night football in Penwortham

That's More Like It

Points Proving Particularly Patchy


Back to 7 players this week - hurrah - with a special guest appearance from Chris Heaney, back in Preston for a weekend's rest and recovery. So we started, and finished, with Goose in nets, Joe and Phil at the back, Matt, Sean and Chris in midfield and Andy up front, Mark Heaney was on the touchline ready to respond to any crisis. We had a couple of competitive games against Unathletico Madrid last season, how would this one turn out?

Not much in it for the first 10 minutes, Goose made a couple of good stops and we had a similar number of efforts. Then Andy unleashed a left foot thunderbolt from 20 years out that flew into the bottom left hand corner of the net, 1 - 0 up. Well that just upset our opponents, a tremendous shot, 25 yards out, from the touchline flew in to the net, a back pass to Goose ended up with their attacker nicking it past our helpless keeper. so 2 - 1 down at halftime.

We upped the intensity and work rate in the second half and looked a lot better, Unathletico were being pretty well contained. Mid way through the second half we got the equaliser. A few minutes later we made it 3 - 2, we just need to hang on for the last 5 minutes. Sounds easy, not quite so straightforward in real life. Unathletico get their equaliser with the last kick of the game.

First point of the season, I know how Neil Warnock feels, if only we could have signed Mitrovic!

Never Odd or Even     3 - 3     Unathletico Madrid


Next week - Redline FC are our opponents at 8.30pm on the 25th October.
