Having played each other in an enjoyable friendly fixture some weeks back, Bristol Inner City were pleased to welcome Shortwood for an expected competitive cup fixture. Shortwoods attack challenged the defensive responsibilities of Bristol's players, especially when the ball reached the talented, skillful and intelligent movement of the number 9.
Deserved praise also goes to Shortwoods right back who managed to control the speed and attacking threat of Bristol's width. The game played out competitively and looked to be heading to a goalless draw when a rebound from a fine block was powered home with 7 minutes to play.
Shortwood dug deep and tried to level the fixture all the way to the final whistle in a game that could have swung either way. One outstanding top hand save from Bristol's talented goalkeeper might have been the defining moment at an earlier 0-0 time frame.
