Manics Hit Back To Leave Blades Furious

This Sunday saw the opening game for Bracknell Manics Reserves who played Bracknell Blades at Calfridus Way for their first home match.

The Manics dominated the game for the first 25 -30mins; David Comper opened the scoring for the side, and shortly after Steve Dennaford broke down the right into the 18 yard box were he was brought down and awarded a penalty. Alan Mattias stepped up and slotted in to make it 2-0.

However, Manics went to sleep in the last 15minutes and gave away two free kicks with Blades scoring from both meaning both sides would end the half at 2-2.

It got tough for the Manics at the start of the second conceding an own goal and then conceding again soon after as Blades picked up on their game.
More bad news followed as Steve Dennaford was brought off unable to run off an injury from the first half. Manics were forced to change their formation to 4-4-2 and Paul Miller came on to support the play.

But the substitute made a difference, and Manics leveled the score 4-4 by the full time whistle, in all fairness both teams deservedly earning a point for their hard work in the second half.

Scorers: Comper (1) Mattias (2) Miller (1).
Assists: Dennaford (1) Miller (1).

The Manics Man of the Match went to Tony Hemley & the Referee's player of the match went to Ben Westwood.

Thanks to the fans who came to watch!
