Inter Mivan 0-1 Wigston Fields
It was a real gutsy effort from the boys today and a proper 'backs against the wall' job. Mivan had the lions share of the ball and worked it really well, with clear quality on there team. However they didn't really threaten the goal much in the first half. They did have about 10 corners all of which were of the highest delivery right onto our keeper. Clearly a tactic which they had been successful with before but this time our keeper was excellent in punching clear. Our keeper was also called into action to tackle the Mivan attacker on his touch after going clear through. Fields had chances of there own with one being fired over from 10 yards and Mark Allen shooting wide. Into the second half and it was more of the same; a great defensive display with bodies being put on the line. The breakthrough came when a fields free kick was cleared to Chris Weston who took a touch to put a diagonal ball right onto the chest of Joe Dowsing who controlled well and slid the ball home. Complaints of offside from Mivan and a linesman flag but the referee was in a great position to see and he played on. Full credit to him for allowing the game to continue. Definitely onside as the ball was played over. Fields kept the lead and defended well, Mivan and some good chances to equalise but didn't hit the target much, whilst fields hit a post and created some Decent openings on the counter. A first clean sheet in a year and three wins on the bounce in the league now.
