Re: Romulus v Worcester City tonight

If it's level after 90 minutes , it's straight to penalties   (ie no extra time)

Romulus penalty appeal turned down on 17 minutes.
City are forced to make an early substitution because of an injury to No. 4 Hall. Replaced by English who takes up the centre half position.

Still 1-0 after 20 minutes

Basford's cross shot for City brushes the top of the Romulus crossbar. Then Lemon shoots wide with better options ahead of him but City are now pressing.   Degville-Cross  has a chance for Romulus on the counter but fires wide,
Still 1-0    after 40 minutes

Re: Romulus v Worcester City tonight

Big Chance for City just before half time. Moran one on one with Romulus keeper Wagstaff but Wagstaff blocks. 

Half Time  :  Romulus  1  Worcester City  0

City have been getting forward more frequently but Romulus look more dangerous.

Re: Romulus v Worcester City tonight

Nasty looking collision between two City players, Gwynne and Keasey.  It's a head injury for City keeper Gwynne and he has to be replaced by Sam Gilder.

Liam Lockett almost gets City level but his swirling shot hits the top of the bar and goes over.

Still   Romulus  1  Worcester City  0      70 minutes

Re: Romulus v Worcester City tonight

Apparently Matt Gwynne is okay, couple of stud marks in his head but nothing concerning. Taken off as a precaution.

Romulus change :  Jackson on,  No 9 Keen off   

Romulus now enjoying more possession as we enter the final 10 minutes.

Still     Romulus  1  Worcester City  0        80  minutes

Re: Romulus v Worcester City tonight

Post match thoughts of Worcester City manager John Snape

I thought we started well, we wanted to pass it and so did they so it opened up into a quite entertaining game. 
Maybe we made too many passes, especially in the last third. We brought them on a little bit and did not stretch them in behind,
We fell behind  to a goal where the ball came in too easily from the side and Elmes was left with the man arriving in the six-yard box.
It took us a while to get back into our stride, confidence went a little bit but slowly but surely we got back on track.
Ethan Moran had a great chance to score when one-on-one and their keeper had to make a couple of decent saves.
We were always going to find it difficult from set pieces but coped well.
In the second half I thought it was there for us to win. After 10 or 15 minutes of steadying the ship I thought it looked like there would be only one winner.
We were guilty of not being clinical and finishing off the game.
Liam Lockett hit the bar after coming on, he looked sharp and bright and in the end James Lemon popped up with a goal that would have been worthy of winning any game.
It was a sublime finish but I'm sick of watching us score fantastic goals only to get beaten.

Re: Romulus v Worcester City tonight

James Lemon's fantastic equaliser for City can be seen on Romulus Twitter. He was racing towards the left of goal under challenge. His shot hit the inside of the left hand post, flew across the goal, hit the right hand post and went in.

They call James Lemon, Keith....... after the comedian.          Great music on the clip after the goal.      Can we do that ?
