How did we all do chaps I won 5-2 away and am still top of the league

Liddington's Lads - Rochford FC 2 - 5

At Hotspur's Empire, 7071 punters turned up, and despite threatening clouds at the horizon, no rain came. Liddingtons had chosen a strategic 3-5-2 formation. The following players had been chosen: Baliño - Boyack, Martinek, Roudenko - Jawaid, Green, MacIvor, Victor Jaya, Langford - Harris, Alvarado.

Rochford had chosen a strategic 3-5-2 formation. The following players had been chosen: Statton - Hall, Hunter, Brons - Martin, Olague, MacEachin, Golding, Loftus - den Hollander, Magallanes.

Rochford saw most attack opportunites on the wings and were directing their passes that way. José Magallanes gave the visitors the lead in the 10:th minute with 0 - 1. The goal was scored from the penalty spot after a handball call in the penalty area. Eugenio Alvarado put his head to a well placed ball lifted in from the left and scored the 1 - 1 goal in the 28:th minute. In the 30:th minute cheers broke out as Vidyacharan Victor Jaya found his way through the guests central defense line, clipping the 2 - 1 goal in for Liddingtons. 40 minutes into the game Rochford´s Somerled MacEachin found a gap in the home sides central defense scoring to make it 2 - 2. In the 43rd minute Rochfords Rudi Brons received a yellow card for going into a challenge studs first. The Liddingtons player was Darren Harris who had to be helped off the pitch, unable to finish the game, but Joe Haynes came in to finish the match. Halftime score was 2 - 2. Rochford held the ball, with a clear 56 percent possession rate.

Chad Golding came close to putting the visiting team one up in the 67:th minute, following a solo raid down the middle, but Víctor Baliño managed to tip the ball to a corner. In the 68:th minute an unfortunate play by Víctor Baliño gave the visitors a chance at the lead, but Tam Martin, finding himself alone with the keeper, was unable to take advantage of the situation. In the 71st minute the visitors broke through on the right after some poor defending and Robert Loftus put the ball away for 2 - 3. Several players now looked tired, especially Werner Martinek who quite horribly caused the 2 - 4 goal as he lost the ball to Lawrence Hall of Rochford, who seemed to have some energy left. The game had been on for 79 minutes when José Magallanes broke through to the right, upping the score to the home crowd´s dismay. Rochford´s were up 2 - 5. The structure of the game started to change as Rochford decided to pull back and meet their opponents in the defensive zone. Rochford held the ball, with a clear 76 percent possession rate.

Liddingtons´s best player was Elliot Jawaid. Murray MacIvor on the other hand, had a terrible day. Rochford´s best player was Gregory Hunter. Chad Golding on the other hand, had a terrible day. The match ends 2 - 5.
