CSKA II 3-1 Huncote & Blackbird (Cup) Long Awaited Victory For Seconds

League Cup Fixture
Date: Sunday 09 May 2021
Venue: Rawlins Stadium
Referee: Martin Dexter, Leics

CSKA Carnabys Reserves found themselves amongst the points again this weekend as hey swept aside Blackbird 3-1.

Late drop outs and ongoing fitness and injury woes within the squad left management duo Karsandas and Maggs with little options beyond the starting XI on Sunday, and things looked bleak early on as the Mods conceded a scrappy early goal within the opening stages of the first half.

But while results haven’t been quite what the two of them hoped for recently, what they had seen on the pitch in the past few weeks payed dividends on Sunday as CSKA quickly turned it around with 2 goals from well-worked set pieces. Huncote’s early bravado soon evaporated as they found themselves struggling to handle the Mods High line and defensive discipline.

 

In the second half Huncote played better, having a dominant spell for a large part of the half, but CSKA had an answer to everything they threw at them, forcing goalkeeper Shah into two breathtaking saves to keep the Mods in front.

 

Goals from Damian Wright, Bav Gangajalia and Ricky Patel secured the points on Sunday morning, but Ash Walker put in a Man of the Match performance; the forward put the opposition under pressure for the entire match.

“Everyone put in a shift, a great all round team performance,” co-manager Jay had to say after the game. And, on Walker: “[he made] chances out of nothing, it felt like we had an outlet for the ball all game today.”

 

With the hard work in training finally paying off for the Reserves, they still have one more game this season. Can they build on this week’s win and maintain momentum to make it 6 points from 2 games, which could even be enough to qualify for the semi final!?
