Whites win against Witham
By Gary Kay
City take win
Today we was in league cup action with a group A match against Witham Town Yellows, having started the morning with 15 players available, we started to lose players for a number of reasons and ended up starting the match with just 10 players.
Having moved players about to different positions and having a team discussion the boys started the game well and on the front foot, wasn't long before the first chance come for the whites but this couldn't be converted. Then on 23 mins a throw in was collected and controlled by Bobby who then played a great pass across the box to find Jack who finished into the roof of the net to put the whites 1-0 up.
From the kick off the Whites was pushing for a second and almost got it but for a great save from the Witham keeper, as the whites pushed forward Witham counter attacked on a number of occasions and could drawn level but for some good defending and work from Matthew in goal.
On 32 mins Witham won a penalty this was Witham's chance to draw level, up stepped the Witham only to see his penalty well saved by Matthew down to his left, then just before half time Witham had 2 good chances to pull a goal back but for a great one on one save by Matthew and the another pushed onto the post kept the score at 1-0 at half time.
At half time city where back to 11 players with a late arrival, and with both teams playing open football and having chances it was city that struck next after a shot was fumbled by the Witham keeper and Ronnie followed up to tap in his first goal of the season on 57 mins and only his second for the club, then 2 mins later on 59 mins Jack burst into the area to finish of a neat move to make it 3-0 to the whites.
Witham kept pushing forward looking to pull a goal back and had chances to do so but could hit the target , with time running out Ethan almost put a 4th in for city but it come back of the post then James had a chance saved late on before Ethan hit a well struck shot over the Witham keeper to make it 4-0 on 68 mins.
