FC Blues V Totton Town

Totton Town went into this game with a complacency and arrogance that would see them struggle against any team in the league. Totton forgot the basics in this game. The discipline all over the park was somewhat lacking. The first goal of the game from Liam Hanlon. A left footed strike from an impossible angle sweetly found the back of the net. Everyone on the pitch stood in ore at the genuis of Liam Hanlon 1-0 Totton Town, this seemed like the away teams day. Failure to capitalise on the lead Totton found themselves at 1-1 just before half time conceding from a deep cross to the far post. The back line was in disarray when Hamble's stiker found himself in a spacious area at the back post to head the ball into the net with ease 1-1. The seed of doubt was planted in Totton minds and it occured to all players this league is not a fore gone conclusion.
Second half proved to be a thriller with Hamble taking the lead and yet again Liam Hanlon equalising to make it 2-2 with 20 minutes to go. Unfortunately for Totton Town they never got their act together at the back and failure to put their foot through the ball resulted in another goal for Hamble to make it 3-2. The last 15 minutes of the game was all Totton Town who did everything but score a goal. The game ended with the home team taking all the points.
There are some positives from the game said manager Ross Baker. Danny Hanlon was awesome and looked dangerous throughout the 90 minutes. Little Danny provided the cross for Liam Hanlon's second goal and continued running at players throughout the game. Glenn Baker added, '' Danny looked a big threat.'' Aaron Froukhians put in another solid performance and felt stronger. Maybe in the next game he will last longer but Ross knows Aaron isn't too far away from match fitness. Totton Town did create chances and were extremley unlucky not to take anything from the game.
Totton can only look forward to the next game and it can't come quick enough. ''We need to get it out of our system'' said Glenn Baker and with no game next week the Totton boys will be fully recharged and raring to go again in 2 weeks.
