Marc Grocott - Stoke City

Defensive Blunders

05/01/08 |

Match: Blackburn Rovers vs Stoke City

A rather early start with being away at Blackburn which is always good on a Saturday morning! My prediction was also proved correct it was an extremely tough game and once it had settled down after a hectic opening ten minutes we managed to take the lead!

Some good work down the right flank resulted in a good cross and Natty powered a header into the top corner from around 10 yards! After that we kept the pressure on and were well on top until a defensive blunder allowed a Blackburn striker to have a shot which was only partially saved. The rebound was turned home by his strike partner and we went into the break all square.

In the second half it all went downhill. We conceded a second from a tap in after a low cross was fired across the face of goal and then two in quick succession from another two defensive errors proved to be the end of us and the game ended 4-1. In the post match talk Ady said that he was pleased about the first half performance but wasn’t at all happy about the second half and it was defensive errors from individuals that cost us.
