a satisfying 1-0 purely because of the opposition. With better finishing we should have been home and hosed after an hour. Our defence is resolute but 1-0 is a dangerous scorline (Grays?). A Gav carousel at the back with Hibbert at LB Drage at RB and Pinnock and Nelson in the centre was unexpected. Erskine started up front went off injured after about 15 and was replaced by Penney which I thought was interesting as Willock was on the bench
James played in front of back four with Waldren higher
Our goal was scored by Murrell Williamson as he skipped past defenders played a 1-2 off the post and tapped in the rebound. Clunis was a constant threat but looks in need of a goal. He hit the bar and had a one on one saved. penney had 4 decent chances and hit the target with none of them
We are missing Scannell and his natural attacking instincts and quite simply we have to make our chances count. On the plus side we are creating them
On the Leatherhead team was Jerry Nnami(?) probably the only survivor from Wallgate. hes a decent defender and remains the only player who came to the Dulwich fans to check no one was injured that day. I like this man
Re: v Leatherhead
Nnamani is a decent centre back, and thought their right back Nortei Nortey was their best player, quick and tidy and never got shown up, which is no mean feat in a game where our two wingers Clunis & Murrell-Williamson were on fire. Otherwise this was about as one sided a 1-0 win as you'll see. I can only recall Leatherhead having two meaningful attacks: a 30 yard free kick just before half time, straight into Wilson's midriff, and a corner than led to a header across the face of goal before a shot was blasted into the side netting. Chances will always be missed in a dominant attacking performance, but a winning margin of four goals or more wouldn't have flattered Hamlet. We beat Canvey & K's 3-0 and they each offered more resistance than Leatherhead.
The rejigging of our back four was strange; same four players as Saturday, bur only one of them played in the same position. Still, it didn't have any adverse effect. A bit of a worry that Erskine got injured again, with Scannell, Jarrett, Dixon& Sankofa already out. Waldren will miss Saturday's FA Cup tie at Hampton, and I guess Hayes may not want Murrell-Williamson to become cup-tied.
Team (4-3-3): Wilson - Drage, Nelson, Pinnock, Hibbert - Carew, James, Waldren(c) - Murrell-Williamson, Erskine, Clunis. Subs: Penny (for Erskine), Willock (for James), Mascoll (for Murrell-Williamson), Fernandes, Jayesimi (not used). Attendance: 625
