Gav caught up with manager Luke Forgione after the full time whistle
After losing to Dronfield two week a go. I felt, that you could sense that the lads were chomping at the bit in training on Thursday. We had to finish training on Thursday early as i thought the boys were playing like it was a match, which is always a good sign. We seemed to build on that today and began on the front foot from the first whistle. Although not creating many clear cut chances I felt the impetus was with us and we scored when we was on top from a set piece. The game started to change after, with Glasshoughton causing us a through issues, playing through us too easy and shots from distance, they hit the post, a little lucky in this instance but I always felt we carried a threat, but was wasteful in our play. We made a tactical switch just before half time and carried this ok in the second half which gave us more control. The second goal seemed to knock the stuffing out of Glasshoughton and then the game became a bit more comfortable, scrappy which suited us at 2-0. The late goal from Glasshoughton could of caused more anxiety but after the goal we managed the game well on their half to see the game out. Not the prettiest, not one for the purest, but more than happy to get another win on the road.
