Can't comment on today's performance as i couldn't make the match. Went to Stocksbridge instead for the bottom of the table clash againt Eastwood, The away team being down to 10 men after the 1st minute. They were actually the better team in what was a dire 1st half.
Much better 2nd half, nearly all SPS, Eastwoood netting with their first real attack with a great strike, Danny South rescuing the home team in the 90th minute with a well taken goal, drilling it to the bottom corner, having come off the bench around 15 minutes earlier.
Billard, Adams, Darley, and Callery all starting today, Sanasy on the Bench with South, Whitehouse was suspended and Ben Turner was not even in the match day squad, had a chat to him before the match. Obviously not happy being left out of them, but he took it on the chin. Also had a chat to Salkster and Charlie George from Stocky, who sometimes post on here. Told them i had come to watch Frickley Reserves.
Clearly the locals are not happy with their manager and want shut of him, 7 games into the season and that seems to be par at the moment. Clarke at Worksop, Atkins at Matlock, and some would say Rose at Frickley. But i'm not one of them yet. One win in seven or eight matches at the start of the season is about right for Frickley in the last 10 years, as with previous managers !.
Oh well, onto Tuesday and Ilkeston at home, without stating the obvious we do have to start and win our home games
