A real battle against a very physical side.

A little tense at the end but a thoroughly enjoyable day.

Loving watching Alty at the moment.

Hard fought win. Should have put in beyond on doubt in the 2nd half. But we dug deep and put bodies on the line. 3 points are massive considering the Shaw Lane result.

Was a bit puzzled why Hannigan came off. And I think I'd have replaced Harrop with Sheridan especially with the early yellow card.

I've got used to winning 4 - 0 every week. The pitch played a part as did their number 8. He would be a useful guy to have in the league above. I felt we went off the boil in the second half which is a bit worrying. We were hanging on at the end.

They were a decent outfit and what they lacked in skill they made up for in effort. It was like the Alamo after they scored. Three very important points.

Next week could be the key to our season.

That was about the right score. They put us under the pump 2nd half but clearly sides are raising their game against us now. Our two goals were expertly taken I have to say. You wonder how sides at this level keep going-maybe 150 Home fans. Like at Sutton Coldfield we had more there then the home team. Next Saturday is huge.

Agreed. They were a decent, and physically a very strong team, who finished the stronger. Quite a contrast to the defeat at nearby Alfreton last season. We owe a debt to Jordan Hulme for his alertness which resulted in the goal, and was also apparent at other times.

Don Amott surely deserves some sort of award for managing to include Napoleon, the Great Fire of London, President Woodrow Wilson and Britney Spears all in the same programme notes. Shocked

Valuable three points against one of the most muscular sides I think I have ever seen us play.  Great to see us win a battle when it was needed. Wasn't pretty when they threw everyone up at the end. 

I hope they try that hard against every team they play.

Our inability to deal with balls pumped into the box for the final 10 mins wasn’t easy to watch. But it shouldn’t take away from what was an otherwise regulation away win.
Totally dominant first half, and then not much happened in the 2nd half until we had a wobble, when they threw the fat centre half up front and Hannigan went off. But we were fairly comfortable otherwise.

As far as you can enjoy the indignity of playing league games at places like Mickleover Sports, I thought they’ve got a pretty decent set up down there for what they need it for.
