Lions hosted United in the second meeting this season between them and with the reverse fixture being a good contest Lions were hoping to get the better of United on home turf. For only the second time this season the Lions were able to field a full team and have 2 subs on the bench. The Lions started with the formation 4-2-3-1 which Simon seems to favour and with the players available it looked liked, this time, it would pay off.
To the Lions surprise within literally minutes the Lions stuck first, Gordon and Simon linking well together for the second game in a row to open the scoring in the 3rd minute to put the Lions 1-0, Quicker then the Argyle goal scored yesterday. So with Simon netting his 3rd goal of the season he got the team off to the perfect start and the Lions were on their way to hopefully a win. With the next 10 minutes all going the Lions way they looked comfortable and settled.
Having played United several we knew they could turn a game around and they did level the score up at 1-1 with half an hour to the brake. The Lions took the goal in their stride and maintained the confidence, but United started to look the better team. They started to move the ball around better and were match the Lions in good passages of play. Unfortunately for the Lions, United managed to get their second goal before the break which once again left the Lions having it all to do in the last 45.
As the second half got underway and trailing the Lions hoped to start as they did in the first but unfortunately it was not to be, United came out firing and put the Lions under constant pressure. With the final ball for the Lions just not falling for them the created chances didn’t result in another goal, United on the other had it all their way. Even with Kacie and Chris giving fresh options from the bench the Lions just couldn’t add to their tally. United netted 5 times in the second half to make the final score Lions 1-6 United.
The Lions can’t seem to buy a win, 5 matches 0 wins. Not all bad news, with the Lions scoring in every match it means that we can keep moving forward. Next week we host Soho FC, a London-based GFSN team, in the GFSN Cup. Hopefully, the first win can come at the right time and the first win is right around the corner.
