Westella & Willerby made the short trip over to Brigg Town on Saturday for the local derby fixture and came away not only feeling sorry for themselves but also on the back of a 2-0 defeat.
A bright opening period for Westella saw them crest some early opportunities, most noteable coming from Chris Short down the right hand side driving inwards putting Alex Wood through on goal drawing a comfortable save from Dan Waring in the Brigg goal.
Both sides at times where wide open and it soon became a game of you attack, we attack with little ball retention from either side.
Brigg however did break the determined Westella defence on the half hour mark when midfielder Smith cut inside and fired a curling left foot effort in to the far side of the goal for 1-0.
Neither side settled down as the game went on and from a Westella attack Brigg broke forward quickly with an inch perfect cross from Marsden allowing Brigg captain Anderson an easy back post header for 2-0.
The second was all of similar fashion to the first half, Westella started bright but failed to get past the Brigg back line whilst some wayward shooting from the hosts could of potentially seen the score line somewhat a little differently.
“There was some faith put in the starting 11 today and the lads let me and the club down massively today in a bitterly disappointing performance that was not only winnable but also a local derby”
“Fair play to Brigg though, they defended well and took their chances early in the game”
“I thought we started both halfs well but it doesn’t count for anything when you loose and are second bottom of the league facing potential relegation”
“Training and next weekends home fixture versus Drinfield Town can’t come quick enough as I’m keen to see which players care about the club and are going to make sure we stay in the NCEL league”.
