Gates Left With An Empty Feeling After A Rocky Ride

This weeks game saw Mark Gates a beaten man, head in hands as Manics 1st team let another 3 points slip through their grasp.

After a bright start to the game, Jason Graaf took the Manics ahead scoring his first goal from a Gavin Baker corner with his head. Manics though found themselves at 1-1 before the break, and Manics had had chances to extend their lead on a number of occassions.

No matter though, Gavin Baker made a fine individual effort drilling the ball past the Rides keeper to make it 2-1.

Chances were had by both sides, and it would turn out to be heated game as a Rides player was sent from the pitch. Keepers from both sides kept the game equal, but just before the end of the game, Rides played a well-timed through ball caught the Manics back line off guard and the ball was shot past Robinson in to the net to make it 2-2, leaving Manics only a single point.

Manics have a lot to think about as they face Saracens in the league next weekend...

Scorers: Graaff (1) Baker (1).
Assists: Baker (1).

The Manics Man of the Match went to James Robinson and the Referee's player of the match went to Ryan Warman.

Thanks to the fans who came to watch.
