Are You Really Gonna Do
Manics finally secured a win in a physical encounter with a
young Rides side as new boys Yusuke Yamada and Jason Worthy
got their first goals for the club. The boys in dark blue sprinkled
hocus pocus all over the Rides pitch with a committed and measured
performance. The Manics spirit was truly back.
BMFC made a key change to the starting line-up this week by
pushing the combative and energetic red-head, Adam Barnard,
into central midfield with the magician Gavin Baker. And it
was Baker who showed he had the
golden touch by drilling a left foot effort wide of the Rides
keeper to make it 1-0. Manics had escaped a couple of defensive
mistakes as Rides finished woefully in front of goal.
Up All Night
Despite many players being out the previous night, energy levels
were high and this worried Rides, particularly down the flanks
with Gareth Evans and Yamada making blistering runs. Yamada
cashed in on one of these for his first goal in a Manics jersey.
In the morning
At half time Manics were happy to be 2-0 up. In the morning
they knew it was going to be alright, but not this good. They
felt they had played the better football, too, despite conceding
the odd chance at the back. After a long period out injured
Simon Blay was finding his feet, and encouragingly for the Manics
he put in a confident display with his centre back partner.
Chris Mitchell and Ryan Warman looked strong too, but stayed
careful not to get too adventurous against a young and quick
...are dirty too
Manics were full of fight in the second half, and put in some
crunching tackles. Rides were dirty too but we never looked
back after Jason Worthy opened
his Manics account to make it 3. Worthy tapped in a rebound,
after goodwork from Warman down the left wing.
However, a questionable goal for Rides made Manics really really
wish they could be somewhere else. Linesman had flagged for
offside, but the referee waved play on. Manics didn't let it
get to them, and pushed on once more - a sure sign that they
have mentally recovered from their dreadful start to the season.
And it was Yamada who sealed the
points with another tidy finish.
The Bracknell back 4 weren't concentrating and may have been
watching America, and they conceded another to set up a tense
final 10 minutes. However, they held on to take their first
maximum of the season.
