Match Report

Shortwood utd Visit Saints in the League Cup

Shortwood utd made the trip down M5 for this league cup game second round. It was Shortwood who started the quickest scoring two goals in quick succession to lead 2-0 and give themselves a huge advantage. The first the Shortwood striker reacting quickest from a long kick and the second capitalising on an under hit back pass. The game settled down after this frantic start with Saints trying to get back into the game and Shortwood attempting to maintain their early pressure. It was a special goal from Hodges that got Saints back into the game with a volley from just outside the area accurately into the far corner past the outstretched Shortwood GK. Just as the half was looking at coming to an end Shortwood reacted quickest when Saints failed to clear a corner kick to sweep home and take a two goal lead into half time. 

The second half started with Saints on top and attacking well down the right hand side with Oli Rayson showing his acceleration and skill in 1v1 situations. A midfield battle between both teams continued with neither team settling into much of  a passing rhythm, Saints had more of the territorial possession but failed to create any clear cut chances infront of goal, that being said it was not down to lack of effort with plenty of good balls being played across the penalty area from good wide combination play. Shortwood created a good shooting opportunity from outside the area, and the majority of people must of thought they would be taking a three goal lead but s fantastic one handed stop from Barrett in goal kept Saints in the game. 

Congratulations to Shortwood utd and best of luck in the third round, Saints will now drop into the Trophy competition.
