Different Bricks...

Although a few different bricks were in place the Yellow Brick Road remains intact...

Following the withdrawl of Bill due to having the sniffles, Dave Gadie with a dodgy ankle and with your author on the bench 'for emergency use only' the squad was pushed to it's limits. A slightly unconventional line up saw Dave G donning the gloves allowing big Al to play in the midfield, Ben dropped back to shore up the defence with Dave B, leaving Rob and the returning Starky to form a potent looking strike force.

Angel were shorn of a couple of regulars themselves and looked there for the taking, and this proved to be the case as after a slightly dodgy start as people adjusted to their new roles NVA took control.

With NVA shorn of Gaffer Collins' insitence on tactics, formations and ever changing systems, total football took over. Rob and Starky were all over the Angel defence but as their keeper decided to have one of 'those nights' the game remained scoreless until Ben started to step up from the back, a 'sighter' which missed the goal was followed up by a beautifully hit effort which found the back of the net.

We remained totally dominant for the remainder of the match with Angel only managing one vague attempt which Gadie dealt with comfortably. Brinham and Ben had danger man Marcel shackled leaving Angel toothless. Countless chances came and went our way, with the Angel keeper performing miracles even denying Al when the ball looked destined for the top corner. We shall hopefully save the goals for another day.

So another game another cleansheet, one more next week and we will have completed a full half season without conceding. Next week's game is likely to be a different affair with 110 our oppo, a bit of belief, another clean sheet and a couple of goals and we can see them army boys off.

We wear the yellow.
