Match 9 – 26th January 2005: Jack Flash v John's Bitches

Revenge is Sweet

With regulars John and Piers back in the side for this encounter, and buoyed by the success of fending off Inter Yamam's challenge for 7th, Jack Flash were confident going into the game. Hard work still had to be put in, however, Dave was recalled after his defensive efforts in the previous game, and Mark returned. Piers, John, Ed and Rich came back into the side after various amounts of time off. Ed, carrying an injury took position in goal. The game started quickly for Jack Flash, with Mark ignoring his defensive orders and dashing forward with John and Piers to create the first chance of the game. The first half ended goalless with John's Bitches looking most likely to score, but Piers coming closest to actually getting on the scoresheet, with a lob, which eluded the goalkeeper, but unfortunately creeping over too. The second half began with Mark suggesting he play upfront with 3 back, reverting to last year's tactics, some interesting chances were created but no goals were forthcoming. It was Mark who broke the deadlock midway through the second half with a one on one, which took a fortunate bounce off the keeper and creeped over the Bitches' goalline. A goal against the run of play, seemed to startle John's Bitches a little, certainly their defence was at fault for the second goal. The defence looking like statues, Piers knocked a quality through ball from a kick-in, finding Rich, who rounded the keeper and tapped the ball in at the far post. Throughout the game Jack Flash's defence was organised and effective reducing John's Bitches to long shots which were less likely to test Ed in goal. Jumping up to 5th in League D, a plate finish is looking likely for Green's men.
