Today sees us away to a newly formed Baldock team so the boys needed to be on their game. From the kick off it does not take long to see that our hosts are set up to play a direct game with strong centre backs and some very pacey forwards which the lads struggled to handle from the start and get drawn into playing the same style which does not suit us and costs us dearly by conceding two goals, the first being a scrappy affair, bodies in the box and the ball finally being turned over but Baldock’s second was a superb free kick and well worth being noted. The first half continues with end to end action and we manage to get back in the game with a lovely volley from Brandon.
Half Time 2-1 down
The half time team talk done and the boys start the second half much better getting the ball on the ground and using the width of the pitch which creates more space, time and allowing us to pile on the pressure. Baldock have no intention of lying down and mount several counter attacks which we cope with then our efforts are rewarded with a great equaliser from Joe in the last few minutes and the game ends 2-2 definitely a game of two halves and a hard fought result.
