Blustery away defeat

Match report by Daren Mills

Today we travelled to Oxford to play Oxford City. The conditions were cold and there was a strong wind blowing across the pitch which made it difficult for either side to play attractive football.

Q1 - Uncharacteristically Worcester started slowly and Oxford enjoyed much of the early possession. Oxford went close on a number of occasions and Ben Clay made a number of fine saves to keep the home side at bay. 0-0

Q2 – This quarter continued where the first had left off with the wind strongly against Worcester and the lads struggled to get out of their own half although despite the home side's dominance they were unable to break the deadlock. 0-0

Q3 - Worcester finally starting to string passes together although went behind from a headed goal from a freekick which Ben Clay got his hand to although the ball went in off the underside of the bar. Oxford went further ahead when they were awarded a penalty after Worcester had failed to clear their lines and despite enjoying more of the play and Joshua Schuck hitting the bar from a header, Worcester went into the final quarter two behind. 2-0

Q4 - To the Worcester players' credit they battled well and showed a determination to get back into the game and they did pull a goal back after Tom Mills put Cam Montieth through and Cam finished strongly from a tight angle. This set up a grand-stand finish and Matty Patrick-Rivers went close on a number of occasions to scoring an equaliser but try as they might, Worcester were unable to draw level and the game finished 2-1 to Oxford. 2-1
