It seemed like everybody at the club wanted to stick it on Leiston today after the shambles mid week and we did just that. Leiston had most of the play in the first half in my opinion, with Boro set up in a diamond formation. I thought it suited Boro but we were very sloppy on the ball, couldnt put a number of passes together and looked a little bit lost when the Leiston full backs were driving forward with the ball. Our midfield looked lost as to who should be marking them as we didnt have traditional wingers. However, we went in 1-0 up, thanks to Steve Brown, who has become a goal threat in recent weeks!

Second half was much better, we kept possesion alot more frequently but the funny old game of football meant that Leiston scored. Bit of a horror show really, Brown trying to clear the ball/save it from being a corner, walloped it at Preddie and it fell to the Leiston strikers who worked an easy opportunity to equalise. I was worried at that point, as when out attacks broke down, Leiston got it wide and forward quickly. Credit to Baker though, he brought on Newman and Babalola to give us some width and boy did it work. 2 late goals, 3 important points, and we can look up the table now. 17 more games for us to play, we should easily pick up enough points to stay up and I would envisage us getting somewhere between 55-65 points and probably a midtable spot in the final standings.
