Karl Rook had one of his best games for us today. The two goals a rather obvious contribution but the defenders simply couldn’t come to terms with his style of play that so often has seen the yellow card being shown his way.
Considering our opponent’s league position the steady approach to the game was pleasing. We limited them to a few chances and we perhaps edged on possession. Our opening goal came when a high bouncing ball down the middle put Rook through one on one with the ‘keeper. Both players seemed to hesitate but it was Rook who managed to compose himself first to chip the ball over the ‘keeper. 1-0 and “not much to write about”.
Second half and it was very much the same but the visitor’s frustration in Rook grew. Two or three cards were issued for telling the ref he was being gullible to the tactics alone. Then the goal that made us look very safe with the three points. Dolby found Stacy on the edge of the box whose powerful shot was pushed into the path of Rook. Three yards out and no mistake.
The new left back Adam didn’t make the best impression on his debut. A soft yellow in the first half was complimented with a nailed on one and so a red was added to the collection.
Margate Saturday then. My birthday weekend, so don’t expect a win…
