Royals 1-1 Cottagers

17.4 k-ish shade over 2k visitors

Match: Kalas red carded on 39s Shocked - difficult to see properly, from faraway and back row of ED Stand but looked like deliberate trip/haul back on Barrow as he wriggled clear of the challenge on the edge of the box.

Wrecked the game as a contest - Fulham subbed on another defensive player took off Kebano and put 9, or more at times, men behind the ball and defended resolutely.

We had neither guile, flair nor fortune to break them down/unlock them. In truth the longer the game went on, the more threatening they looked when they felt brave enough to break out - which they are well capable of at some pace.

We did deservedly based on possession take the lead around the hour - neat move for once resulting in quick ball across; laid off for Kelly to drive low into the corner.

One too many pfaffing around at the back moments (as we are so prone to Unsure) led to their goal in the last 10'.
A witless free-kick of ours, was driven sideways which Joey VdB tried to first time back to Mannone but merely scooped it straight into our former-loanee Piazon, who duly beat a slumbering Gunter to the ball and placed it under Vito for the equaliser. Mad

Probably a fair result, as the Red card was viewed by some (not just visitors) as harsh and we simply didn't do enough to warrant the three points.
It was frustrating as the game was in our complete grasp having taken the lead and but for one stupid feck up, we'd have taken a routine though very one-sided 1-0!

Even more galling was that few amongst the home fans could see quite why Stam had brought Joey on for Evans in the first place - sure George was tiring and is hardly the most energising of midfielders going forwards but Jaap had more offensive options off the bench. Admittedly VdB's first contribution was to win the ball that led to our goal Angelic but his introduction caused on the face of it an unnecessary change in formation.

Then again w/o the daft gift we subseqently presented them, no-one would have been griping about the odd subs & wasted opportunity - harrumph!

Decided against going to Madejski for the 4th time in 8 months. Donít like the ground personally and decided to do the match between 2 teams Iíd never seen play before.

Moneyfields 2-1 Kempston Rovers, Moneyfield Park, Southern 1 East. Att 112

Admission £8, programmes sold out by 14:45 much to the consternation of guy in front of me

A 20 minute walk from Hilsea station for a ground Iíd seen umpteen times from the railway but never managed to do.

There were a number of early niggles between both sides with the visiting supporters complaining about Moneyfields heavy handed tactics. I thought however that was just the usual biased nature of supporters and didnít think anything was untoward. Moneyfields went ahead on 9 minutes and scored a second on 37 Ė a free header from a corner. Shortly after that it all started Ė following a tackle the KR left back lashed out and got a deserved red card. A minute or so later a stupid booking for mouthing at the referee was quickly followed by a poor tackle by the same player. Half time 2-0 and on red cards 0-2. Kempston had totally lost their discipline and the half time whistle couldnít come soon enough.

11 v 9 then for second half and assumed there would be a few more goals but Moneyfields didnít seem to know how to play against 9 men. On the hour mark a poor back pass put the keeper in trouble allowing the deficit to be reduced and Kempston were looking just as likely to score as the home side.

With 15 to go the score was 2-1 and Moneyfields pulled one back in the red card stakes and only then did they play more sensibly just keeping possession and passing the ball around. Even so there were chances to equalise.

Ground Ė probably well known to many on here. Stand tucked away along touchtime right in the corner cannot give a good view at all. Small bit of shallow cover along same side and thatís about it. Excellent for trainspotters Ė only the one ball went over the netting at the railway end.
