Pre-Match Warm Up…

The opposition were clearly a step up in quality from Saturday. Nuneaton’s passing game still looked promising though, particularly in the first half…

A note of caution though, a worringly low on shots on target across both games to date…

After a brief period of respite, back on the spike…

An encouraging performance, particularly from the the first half team. The twenty one changes made at half-time made the second half largely irrelevant.
