Keeping Hopes Alive
Wednesday 17th May 2017
We didn’t score a hatful on the night. But we could have done. Given just how many chances and attempts we had across the course of the game. Just as the frustration was bordering on excruciating however, our patience paid off and the three points were in the bag.
When every season has memories, as an overall event last night’s won’t stick around for too long. So my thoughts will reflect that.
There was nothing in my usual pre-match routine that proved different or contained anything of particular note.
And the performance was ok. Chances came and went and our visitors were stubborn and well up for it, arguably quite surprising all things considered.
The atmosphere was flat and I can understand that but I would say it was a crowd that was also patient and supportive of the team on the night. Certainly those who made the effort to come along anyway.
And we won and that was the main thing.
One more to go then and a combination of doing our job against Everton and keeping our fingers crossed for results elsewhere going our way is definitely the order of the day.
With that in mind my journey onboard the nautical equivalent of a milkfloat is approaching it’s conclusion and a night’s sleep awaits.
See you Sunday.
