Late penalty denies Spitfires victory over top of the table Spencers Wood

Robert (51')

Having lost the corresponding fixture 6-0 on the first game of the season this result was excellent but being 1-0 up so close to the end and losing that lead in the manner we did was disappointing.

Looking on the bright side though, this was the best, or one of the best performances of the season. The boys defended well from front to back and some of the midfield performances in particular were excellent, giving Spencers Wood little space and frustrating them hugely. Spencers did have a couple of chances but were from set pieces - a free kick well saved by Dylan and a corner headed over - but their prolific goalscorer (pretty sure he is the division's top scorer) was not given a sniff!

Spitfires' goal was a typically well taken shot from just inside the area into the top corner by Robert, who has made a habit of doing that in recent games. That goal came on 51 minutes and despite firing Spencers Wood up more, I didn't feel they really threatened Corin's goal until the controversial penalty 4 minutes from time. Having said that their best chance from open play did come immediately after the penalty but was sliced wide.

Between the goals, Dylan looked dangerous on the break but Spitfires couldn't generate a good enough chance to double their lead. So the game finished 1-1 and that probably was a fair result. Certainly, if you'd offered me that scoreline at the start of play, I would definitely have taken it.

Special mentions to both Dylan and Corin who each looked good in goal but there was only ever one man of the match today. Alex put in an inspired performance - he was everywhere.
