SUPERIOR SHOOTING FROM THE SPITFIRES IS THE DIFFERENCE

Despite matching their hosts in the possession stakes, clinical finishing from Swindon Spitfires meant that, despite a much improved performance, Oldland fell to a luckless 4-1 defeat last Sunday.

It was a topsy turvy first half as Swindon took the lead after just 4 minutes, catching Oldland keeper Jayde Holcombe out at her near post. Swindon missed a couple of clear chances in the next ten minutes but the Abbott's grew into the game and with Jade Scammell having a direct corner cleared off of the line and striker Annie Hawkins-Hoare went narrowly wide. With Scammell narrowly lobbing wide too the end of the first half could have well finished on an equal footing.
The second half continued in the same vein although Oldland were creating the better chances most notably when striker Lydiya Myckalechko burst down the right and her ball across the box seemed destined to find Beth Dale at the far post for a trap in but the home keeper got the faintest of touches to the ball to divert it away.
Time and again Oldland worked themselves into some promising positions but either a poor final ball or good last ditch defending from the home team thwarted the O's.
A fine finish into the top corner from 15 yards with their first shot on target in the second half after 72 minutes from Swindon meant that the O's pushed three up front in a bid to salvage something from the game and sub Romany Cochrane shot wide when well placed. Oldland were pushing on well but but were caught on 77 and 84 minutes as they were caught on the break whilst looking for a way back into the game.
The least that the O's deserved was a goal and it came on 86 minutes when Annie Hawkins-Hoare latched onto a throughball from Nicky Hawkins-Hoare and neatly lobbed the onrushing keeper.
It was a disappointing if undeserved result but a much better performance from Oldland who could possibly have taken something from the game on another day and with a bit more luck.

PLAYER OF THE MATCH ---Courtney Hobbs--A pacy, composed and athletic performance from the Australian Centre Back on her return to the team.
