Reserves vs Thornesians - Match Report (18/10/14)

Mods reserves took on Thornesians on Saturday, looking to secure their first three points of the league campaign. Mods started brightly, playing some nice football in patches and deservedly took the lead mid way through the first half after a Steve Wilkinson free kick was converted by the excellent Tommy Stenger. The rest of the half was played out with mods in relative control and limiting Thornes to few chances.

The second half began with mods keen to see the game out an secure a much needed three points but it wasn't to be. Mods struggled to keep possession and ultimately invited Thornes onto them. It had looked as though mods might see the game out but conceded two soft goals in the last ten minutes which gave Thornes all three points and left mods wondering what might have been.

There are positives to take from the game as for long periods mods were winning the game and despite not having much by way of possession, the mods goal was relatively untroubled. However, what was evident is that the team needs to play together more and improve their collective fitness. In simple terms: people need to get to training.
