Not our best performance to date but still total domination against higher league opponents.
By Martin Jones
Daniels looking fitter after double leg break.
Not our best performance so far in close season but again so many positives none bigger than the performance from charlie daniel who looked fitter , stronger and getting back to his best after suffering a double leg break last season.
The game was something we are getting used to, loads of possession from United trying to play football how it should be played and the opposition not being able to cope with the movement and resorting to long ball tactics.
Given United's possession in the first half they did lack the killer ball and it was a half of what could have been , loads of the ball but not taking chances.
Half time 0-0.
A good talking to the lads at half time from Tezza seemed to lift the team , there was far more intent chances being created but not being taken , Ryhs , Lennon & Dillon hitting the post , Charlie Donaldson bombing on and his bro Matthew surly it was only a matter of time.
After missing 2 sitters Lennon raced on to a through ball from Dillon he outpaced the defenders and hit an unstoppable drive in to the far right hand corner , it was a fantastic goal and was fully deserved.
10 minutes later a plumb of a cross from Dillon had the defender in all sorts of problems and he headed in to his own net.
More chances came, Sphinx were fouling our boys all over the pitch they just could not cope with the GREEN onslaught.
Aaron pulled of a great save towards the end , he stayed big and upright and smothered the attacker it was like watching Peter Schmeichel in his hay day.
A really brief report all 113 lads involved were good yes we could have done better in certain situations but it is all about learning and they will get a lot from this game.
Well done charlie daniel for his MOM performance
