Match Report

Nuneaton Griff 3 Youth Team 1

Rushall travelled to Nuneaton for their Birmingham County Cup tie.

After a poor first half, where the whole team constantly made poor decisions on and off the ball, Nuneaton held a commanding 2-0 deserved lead at the break.

After regrouping in the dressing room, from the restart it was obvious the next 45 minutes would be far better.

Rushall started to play the way we have done this season. Piling lots of pressure into the home sides half, Jack Dunn penetrated and finished well to get the Pics back in the game.

Numerous corners and free kicks followed, chances went begging and a blatant pass back was ignored to ice the cake of several decisions that went against us.

Throwing the kitchen sink and obviously in the dying minutes having to rush, possession was handed over via a mistake in midfield, Nuneaton sealed a fine victory for them with a game killing third goal.

We must start as we mean to go on in games in order to win them, we should know this by now.
