A scary scoreline, a break needed, so shall we finish the season now

Maghull 1 - 2 Mossley Hill

Saturday 28th March 2015  kick off 3pm

The fortress is well and truly broken and battered.

What was a place that seemed to strike fear into the opposition, Old Hall Field has become a playground for visitors. The lads are under the gun here and it seems like a rut they are struggling to get out of.

Mossley Hill have a habit of taking points off us in recent seasons, but Saturday really should have brought about a turn in fortunes for Maghull. Instead, the visitors left with the spoils and another sorry home loss was left to be debated.

Not much difference between last weeks game. Fall behind, get level and then lose it in the second half.

A dreadful downpour greeted the kick off and it was pretty wet stuff from there on. Maghull did improve from last weeks performance and as has been the case for most of the season, missed chances cost them.

The rearguard fell asleep midway through the first half and two incisive lasses cut through them and left the keeper one on one and he lost. A goal down again and the need to get back in the game, quickly. An equaliser did come just before the break from Mick McGinn and hope lay ahead for a rousing second half.

It didn't really happen. Twice McGinn beat the offside trap only to be flagged offside and within 90 seconds the visitors had the lead. A quick break saw a decent save for a corner, this was played out and a good strike saw another decent save. From the resulting corner a blooper came and the loose ball ended in Maghulls net. Complaints came and were waived away.

The rest of the game faded away, like an end of season affair, with nothing to write home about, or write here either.

Next game : Capenhurts Villa away Saturday 4th April 2015 kick off 3pm
