Didn't see the match, Reading Hednesford's website and forum, It sounded though 3-2 flattered us a bit. Sounds like the keeper had a good game, which was a concern with Ben Scott not playing now. Edit: Just seen the highlights, If i Were a Hednesford fan, i would be saying we should have had 6. The defence looked poor to say the least, I suppose that's what happens when you play pre-season games against lesser quality teams, and you are not exposed enough. I'm sure they will be working on that.
Saying that, You are not going to come every week against a quality forward line like Hednesford have with Harvey, Woolfe and co.
I don't think we will have as many problems as last season with regards to hitting the back of the net. Our problems will probably be whether we can keep it tight at the back, especially with the 3 at the back system. In the pre-season games i saw, We are not shy at flooding forward.
Good effort, but quite optimistic we can be a force at home. There's a good spirit about them and with two games on the bounce at home now, I don't think they need to be disheartened from a narrow loss and can really look at making a statement of Intent at home.
Also, It would be nice if the team could have a team photo this Saturday. As we have not had one for a number of years. New regime, New Team and New Optimism and all that !!
Good Luck Guys
ps. Give that Ashmore and Grayson a kick for me !
