Early out of the traps, a stroll in the park and late again

Maghull 6 - 0 Ashville

Saturday 27th January 2015  kick off 2pm

Received my weekly gripe about not making the kick off, but this time the swines went and caught me out by popping in a very early opener. Apparently, Madden and Boyle played a neat interchange before setting up Dutton to strike home to give Maghull a very early lead.

From there onwards, Lee Carrol just had to be still and the clean sheet was guaranteed.

Boyle, having the run of the pitch, was involved in the move that brought about the second of the match. Hooper eventually playing the ball into the box where Madden found acres of space at the back post to put Maghull two up. This seemed to set the pattern for the game, as a very cold day was only warmed up by the clapping of hands at the hosts creating chance after chance.

A third arrived before the break, with Dutton applying the finishing touch to a ball played into him by Boyle, once again.

Ashville, who had got out of jail in the reverse fixture earlier in the season, taking only a one nil loss, surely had to put this down to things could not get any worse and put up some sort of resistance, in the second half. Instead we got a keystone cops moment, within ninety seconds of the restart. To save being cruel, let's just say that Dutton was left totally on his own, with a keeper stranded and a centre back laying face down in the box, to tap home for his first hat trick for the club.

More misery was administered when Boyle finally got his name on the scoresheet, striking home a fine left footer from Hoopers pass and Ashvilles sorry day was complete. Well not quite !

Rob Dutton did a Latch, when cracking home his fourth of the game after being played in by Madden and the floodgates really were smashed down. With twenty minutes to go, this really could be any score.

Alas, what had been just a procession and not the most interesting of attack against defence encounters I have seen, Maghull finished the game wasting a couple of half chances and not completing the rout in the fashion it deserved.

Suffice to say, if you win 6-0 and can see improvment, then things are looking quite good. And maybe, with a bit of luck along the way, we will see a fine second half of the season. Sorry if it seems I just mentioned the goals, but there was not a lot more to offer..it was just a very easy win.
