Good run continues

4-2 winners at QP

The reserves continued their good run with a 4-2 success at FC Quenns Park.

A trip to 'the Park' can sometimes be a daunting experience for the young lads and we were greeted by a mob of QP faithful hanging outside the 'Caia Fryer'.

QP lie near the bottom but gave Cefn Druids a good run and we were taking nothing for granted. A nightmare start for us where we were caught out by the pace of the QP winger which led to Luke Peate bringing down the player for a penalty which was duley dispatched. We soon settled though and a sublime free kick from Sutty had us back on level terms. Matt Thompson was doing a fine jon ushering the ball around the 'Dunks' and frustrating the experienced QP midfield. A mistake from their defence presented Hugh Jones with a chance from 35 yeard, with the keeper stranded he guided the ball home for a 2-1 HT lead.

The second half was all about applying our dominance into scoring chnaces and for the second time this season Will Roberts pounced on a chance that was probably alrady over the line. No goal line technology though and no wonder he is top scorer. Chris Halliwell rounded things off with a finish he claimed was like a Henrikh Mkhitaryan finish, we beg to differ and many believed that he was just trying to get out of the way. QP rallied to claim a late consolation goal but it was game over by then and another solid win for the reserves.
