Harborough Town away

Saturday 10th October

A very slow start to the game and Brackley found themselves 2-0 down inside the opening 10 mins, as Brackley tried to get back into the game and with a great counter attack should have been awarded a penalty but a freekick was given. 2 more soft and sloppy goads followed and Brackley were struggling to deal with the pace Harborough had down the wings. Just before half time the goal of the match came, number 10 for Harborough picked up the ball beat 2 players before firing into the top corner from 25 yards. 

Half time 5-0 down and Brackley were looking beaten and very off the pace, a slight change in formation and the second half was the complete opposite performance from them, pressing high, pressuring the ball and keeping the ball to create chances. An excellent finish from a long cross saw Harborough go 5-0 up and this seemed to fire Brackley into life even more, 2 well worked moves resulted in to great finishes from distance and Brackley were looking to press more and create as many chances as possible.

The match finished 6-2 but a great effort from Brackley when another day being 5-0 down could of finished on a heavy defeat and the players being defeated.
