Match report v Weymouth
« on: October 07, 2017, 08:26:52 PM »
Weymouth 3 Kingís Lynn Town 1
Saturday 7th October

Weymouth had just the right tactics against Lynn, allowing them the possession but having the discipline and organisation to give Lynn few chances and then having the speed to hurt them on the break.
Lynn fielded the same team that defeated Biggleswade.
Both teams took time to settle with Lynn have a free kick which came to nothing and Weymouth having the first corner which had the same result.
Then in the twelfth minute Cameron Norman's cross found Ryan Hawkins who was judged to have been pushed and Lynn were awarded a penalty. Michael Clunan tried to place his spot kick but home 'keeper Gareth Stewart guessed the right way to pull off a good save.
Four minutes later Weymouth had their first shot Calvin Brooks dragging the ball back for Brandon Goodship who forced a good save from Alex Street.
Lynn continued to dominate with Norman proving a handful for the home defence but resolute defending and blocking gave Lynn few chances in the final third.
Weymouth took the lead against the run of play on 28 minutes Goodship getting on the end of a ball over the top to round Street and score.
Ten minutes before the break a foul by Terras' McCarthy on Gash gave Lynn a free kick from some 25 yards. Hawkin's looping kick went over the wall but hit the base of the upright.
Lynn lost Leon Mettam with a suspected hamstring injury and then Norman ballooned over having been picked out by Clunan's corner.
The second half began in much the same vein as the first with Stewart pulling off a number of saves and it was no surprise when Lynn equalised on 67 minutes, Michael Gash scoring after exchanging passes with Craig Parker.
It should have been the goal that inspired the Linnets to victory but on 75 minutes a moment of hesitation in the Lynn defence allowed Goodship to score his second of the afternoon.
Stewart then pulled off another good save to deny Gash who was on the end of Toby Hilliard's cross.
With six minutes remaining Lynn's defence failed to clear their lines when Harry Baker crossed and the ball fell to Charlie Davis whose dipping 25-yard volley beat Street.
Stewart, who was the Terras man of the match, then parried an angled shot from Norman to end Lynn's hopes.

Any word from anyone who went?  :dontknow:

We don't seem to be getting the results away from Home perhaps Ian needs a rethink on the System we are using

We are dominating possession. Weymouth said it was like being the away side! We don't score many goals compared to others. Are we creating chances and just not putting them away or are we simply not creating enough chances?
I don't understand why Culverhouse won't try Siddons and Gash together. Whayman is a game changer (he certainly was against St Ives); why is he not playing with the 1st team squad?

Does Culverhouse need a bit more variety in the way that he approaches matches?

Stan when Holt comes the likes of Siddons are going to be somewhat limited in game time, unless someone else is on their bike.

I think the concern on away games is the goals shipped.  How many grounds can we travel to and ship 3 goals and expect to come away with anything ?   Surely we have to get a shut up shop side to our game and come away with a 0-0 or a 1-1

Correct Mallard.We are playing some good stuff but if you're shipping 3 goals you won't win too many.We need to be more resilient defensively no matter who you have up front.We seem pretty tight at home but a soft touch at the back whether it's Gaughran or Ward partnering Fryatt.I still think we will make the play offs at least.

Then as exciting as today's signings are (and they are genuinely exciting)

We really need a tenacious midfielder who does the "ugly" stuff to make us harder to beat.

Ryan Jarvis does this pretty well, but in tough away matches another ball winning midfielder would be invaluable and protect the back four

Incorrect Long Suffering. If you don't score goals when you are dominating matches you inevitably get caught out with a sucker punch. Psychologically, this is difficult to deal with and you end up forcing the game and get exposed at the back. If you convert your possession into goals, your opponents have to push on, especially if they are the home side and they open up, take risks and you can finish them off with your own counter. If you look at our rivals for the title then, compared to them, we don't score enough goals: home or away. There are a number reasons why the club have bought Grant Holt and the key one is we need someone who can put away the chances.

I get what you are saying Stan, but to go 1-0
Down in the first half gives a side plenty of time to get back into the game without going to chase the game. That's where experience counts, calming influence to keep playing the same way.  It's rather unusual that when we go away we seem to be the side forcing the play rather the home team.

At 1 goal down you are still in the game right till the end. 2 down gives you a mountain to climb.  3 down, well that's goodnight nurse

Yes and also in the Weymouth game we equalised and a point there would have been a good result.Instead we shipped two goals shortly afterwards.
