CIANTAR: 'CAN'T TAKE A TRICK AT HOME'

E-mail Print PDF
Disappointed to say the least with the final score and the fact that we were unable to capitalise on all three points. With four or five players out injured, I thought we started the better of the two sides. We were in control from the kick-off and for most of the game and we were never threatened before half-time.

We scored the opening goal in the 37th minute and had two or three clear cut chances to finish Dandenong City off in the first half, but it wasn't to be.

At home we just can't seem to take a trick....we are creating the chances but not putting them away and it's the big part of our game that keeps letting us down.

I feel for the boys at the back as the pressure keeps on mounting on them. It seems that every mistake they make is being punished because of the lack of goals up front.

I must admit I was a little concerned going in to this game. The players that stepped in today did a great job and young 17 year-old goalkeeper James Kapuranovski looked like he has been playing first team football for years. He pulled of a great save and was in full control in the box.

The second half started in similar fashion, I really felt the second goal would come and on the break we we're proving to be a hand full. Again without scoring that second they were remained a threat, even though our young keeper was only called on once to make a great save.

With ten minutes left on the clock Dandenong were awarded a free kick out side the box and the smallest player on the park was there to steer the ball home to make it 1-1.

We did create one or two more chances after their equaliser, but the last kick of the day was the one that got away with the ball bouncing off Bobby Lajonica's shin from inside the six yard box that fell into the hands of the falling keeper.

Most importantly it's a point in the right direction and that we are playing well. I know we will only get better. Go Georgies !
