Bodmin Town 2 Sticker 0
The first half was a very disciplined display from a Sticker side with four changes from the recent Boxing Day display, Sticker set out with a structure to play and after a 0-0 half time score they performed with a togetherness and good attitude. Throughout the half Sticker stopped a lot of Bodmin attacks with strong defending and hard work whilst trying on a difficult pitch to get in behind the Bodmin back line. Both teams created some good opportunities and Ethan Elwell performed well in the nets to keep the score at the 0-0 at the break.
The second half started with the same tempo and Bodmin trying to work the ball through the Sticker back line. The lucky break of the game came halfway through the half when I tame shot from the edge of the box that was heading well wide of the 6 yard box unfortunately reflected in off Adam Cleaves inside the near post. This was especially hard to take as although Bodmin had a lot of possession they had not looked a threat in front of goal.
This sprung Sticker into life needing to press to get back in the game, the final 20minutes of the game and Sticker tried hard forcing numerous corners which unfortunately they could not force home.
Bodmin finished the game off with a couple minutes to go, conceding a corner that we poorly defended. No doubt tired legs had set in after a valid performance by the Sticker lads.
Looking back over the whole performance this was a decent display and had the deflected shot not gone in maybe Sticker would have been worthy of a point out of this game. F/T. 2-0
