REPORT | Game Of Two Halves As Bulls Secure Win

05th February 2019 by Andy Poole - Latest News

IT WAS a game of two halves as The Bulls recovered from a first half deficit to secure a good 2-1 victory and a massive three points at York City.

It was the home side who saw more of the early ball without creating too much as we looked to get into our stride.

Just as we were starting to put together a few neat passages of play, the home side took the lead with nine minutes on the clock when a long ball over the top was flicked on and Alex Kempster was able to fire the ball low beyond the reach of Matt Yates.

A strike from distance by Eliot Richards was easily gathered by Adam Bartlett in the home goal as we looked to hit back.

The home side then went close with efforts in quick succession from Wes York and Alex Harris before an inviting corner was headed just over by Jordan Burrow.

It was a half of few clear-cut chances at either end as our hosts saw plenty of the ball without hurting us too much, whilst we struggled to make an impact in an attacking sense.

Trailing by one goal to nil, the second period started with James Waite on for his Bulls’ debut and he was involved in the action straight away as he got in an effort at goal from Richards’ cross that went into the side-netting.

A low cross by the home side caused problems but we managed to scramble clear as the rain continued to fall.

Waite was looking lively and his rasping strike was pushed by the ‘keeper as we started to up the tempo in search of an equaliser.

In our next raid, a free-kick from Tommy O’Sullivan hit the defensive wall and as the ball found its way to Danny Greenslade, he teed up O’Sullivan whose effort this time crept inches wide of the target.

At the other end, an impressive double save from Yates saw him thwart Sean Newton and then Burrow following a corner that was delivered invitingly by the home side on the hour-mark.

Despite this, we were starting to ask more questions as our tempo and intensity increased as we moved forward with pace and purpose.

There was a chance for the home side when Wes York did well out wide and his cross found Jake Wright who saw his attempt deflected over the crossbar.

Our equaliser arrived on 77 minutes when a free-kick from Greenslade flew through the wall and beyond the ‘keeper for his second goal in as many games.

It was a deserved leveller and within minutes we had the lead when some sharp play ended with the ball pulled back into the path of Waite who controlled well before lashing home to make it 2-1 and give Bartlett no chance.

As we upped the pressure against our deflated hosts, Tom Owen-Evans latched onto a headed back pass but his effort landed narrowly wide under pressure from the ‘keeper which left him in need of treatment.

We managed the game well in the closing stages to secure the three points, which were richly deserved following an impressive second half showing.
