Suecastle 2-0 CSKA (Div2) Sodden defeat for The Mods

League Fixture
Date: Sunday 13 December 2020
Venue: Broughton Park
Referee: Garry Kings, Leics 

CSKA made the trip to Primethorpe for a tough away clash against high-flyers Suecastle. With Kennedy and Parker ruled out, youngster Tommy Henfrey was drafted into the first team, with manager Jon Brice recalling McCafferty and Chapman to the starting line up.

The rain swept in as the game kicked off, it meant for difficult yet not impossible playing conditions. The wide pitch was also causing CSKA issues early doors when defending set pieces with many crosses falling confusingly short.

 

Suecastle dominated the early play, with CSKA on a few occasions springing a counter attack only to fail to supply Chapman with any form of service. And inevitably the opening game after just 15minutes when Jon Brice was adjudged to have handled inside the area, meaning that for the SIXTH time this season, Rich Augustus was tasked with stopping a penalty. Having saved on his previous two occasions however, there wasn’t to be a third, as Adam Blanchard tucked it away.

 

Chances were limited for CSKA, the best coming from Nathan Tate who glanced his header from Chris McCafferty’s free-kick just over the bar, and a flurry of yellow cards asked questions of referee Garry Kings’s handling of the game as Mistry, King, Tate and Walker were all booked within a short window for fair innocuous challenges.

 

CSKA rode the storm and were probably fortunate going in at Half Time just 1-0 down. An enforced change due to injury meant that Tommy Henfrey came on for his CSKA first team debut in place of Adam Gent who hobbled off with a hamstring injury. Henfrey immediately impressed, with a couple of decent runs at the defence early on.

 

Suecastle seemed content to play a high line and stop all the attacks at source, and the tricky conditions meant it was difficult to feed balls in behind the defenders. McCafferty came close with a free-kick as well as hitting the crossbar from a corner, whilst Dave Payne had a shot from range pull just inches wide. Whilst at the other end some heroics from Augustus and Adam King’s goal line clearance kept the game within reach.

However, the home side eventually prospered, and with just 10 minutes remaining found their second goal to put the game beyond reach for CSKA.

Another harsh lesson against Suecastle for CSKA, the early goal and lack of chances created in the first half were the deciding factors. Adam King was clear Man of the Match with his robust defending and surging dribbles forwards in the second half the source of many of the CSKA attacks.
