Well done Wheels - “watching” intently from New Zealand - come on the Albion!

Cheers Wheels COME ON THE ALBS, seems to be a 2-6-3!!!

second half option take Pritch and Mcallister off, bring Super Mike and Brodie on, then it’ll be 0-7-4 you’ve got to admire the attacking intent here!!

Neil’s comment when he text me the team was “Please don’t ask me how they’re lining up”

No news at present so I would guess it was goalless at half time.

Any result would be great tonight a win would be brilliant!! However they are lining up I admire this its an amazing team selection cummon albioooooon!!!

GET IN! Albion 1-0 up but no news on the scorer at present.

Latest still 1-0 to the Albion but Steve Foster has missed a penalty.

:ohmy: come on this would be massive!!!

According to the nonleague news website Albion’s scorer was new signing Ronnie Morgan.


Well done boys! A great three points and it puts us back in with a shout following Chasetown’s home defeat to Belper tonight.

Just had it confirmed by Neil, it was Ronnie Morgan - his first goal for the club.

:cheer: :cheer: :cheer: :cheer: brilliant result!!!

Was’nt great but it’s 3 pts towards getting out of this league.

It is almost impossible to believe that despite already having lost 8 games in the league this season we could still win it!! A run of five or six undefeated and we would probably be top! See you on Saturday. (God willing).

An important 3 points, it was not pretty but we have to beat the clubs in positions above us.

I thought we battled well and effort levels were good. It could have easily been a couple of goals a piece, we missed a pen and they missed one clear opportunity from a header 10 minutes from the end.

In fairness to the manager he had to field probably the only team he could last night. The keeper was not fit to play but the reserve keeper has mumps! Lee Neville was away on holiday, Dylan Adams injured (?). Ruffer still suspended, Booth a long term injury and then to cap it all Maylett substituted with what looked a bad injury after about 20 minutes! Had to mitigate for any of that.

With Broadhead and Tandy in the back four it meant Pritch had a busy night, these two are too important to our midfield to be playing at the back but needs must and both at least put the effort in. Ryan’s attitude has impressed me whenever he has played, you can forgive a player at this level for some failings but he more than compensates for this with total commitment.

We could not get any control in midfield (due largely to the formation) and both clubs appeared to bypass the midfield with longer balls into the forwards.

It certainly will not go down as a classic and we were hanging on for the final whistle but the result and the points are what matter, we needed a win and hopefully it will help turn the corner. There are 4 points separating the top 4 clubs!!! At this stage the league is anyones, nobody looks like they want to win it at the moment!!! Time to step up to the challenge.

well done -they will get better =their teamwork will improve.

Welcome to the website YOUNG Harold !

On last nights game - the support was poor - the nearest away ground and some so called fans could’nt be ar*ed going - pathetic ! It’s not as if there was any decent games on TV !

Great result last night. Not the best of performances but oh well, at least we got the points.

Something is bugging me slightly… Why are we so reluctant to have a shot?

Wasn’t at the game and didn’t watch the TV football, won’t do a WHS and bore you with the details Eli - but some things are more important than football (suffice to say Shanks was wrong).

3 points on the road is all that matters. It is indicative of the standard that we are playing at, that we are still in with a shout of promotion.

Look forward to the same result on Saturday.
