Charlotte's Chat

14 January 2020

Saturday once again saw us on home soil entertaining The Latics of Oldham Athletic.
I remember we made the short trip over to Oldham in October where a single goal from Jak McCourt separated the two teams and which secured all three points for us. 
After a busy morning playing football myself, it was a bit of a race against time to get to the Moss for the afternoon's battle.
The team news was announced as we made our way to the ground.
Reice Charles-Cook made his league debut for us following the departure of Owen Evans and it was also very exciting to see Theo Archibald return to the matchday squad following injury!
The game kicked off at an exciting pace with both teams trying to get the upper hand.
We were unable to play our fluent passing game due to the physical presence of the Oldham team - who themselves were attempting to find a ball through to there towering striker in an attempt to take the lead.
Fortunately for us, captain Fiacre Kelleher and Fraser Horsfall ensured they was kept quiet.
Our best chances of the half came when Arthur Gnahoua hit the woodwork in the 35th minute and also in the 45th minute when somehow an Oldham defender appeared from no where to deny a Corey O’Keeffe shot!
Devastatingly Oldham broke the deadlock on the 83rd minute. Despite this every single player in a blue shirt kept their heads remains up and focused on the job in hand.
Defiantly they pushed on and in the dying moments of normal play the officials judged a handball in the area.
Up stepped Joe with his nerves of steel to calmly slot the ball into the back of the net to bring us level!
The game finished 1-1 but it could have gone either way in truth.
See you all at Colchester.
