Can’t understand the criticism about the first half at all, other than the early howler it was the most even game of football you’ll come across. Both sides had a couple of half chances but had largely kept each other well at arm’s length. It was certainly uneventful but Jonno’s assessment of 6/10 in his post match interview is bang on, very solid away from home to a top side apart from a gaffe.
We came out with more purpose after the break and stepped it up, they couldn’t live with us at times. Our second goal was outstanding, Glendon (somehow) pinged one from the halfway line to the right touchline to Jackson who crossed over for Asante first time. Watch the highlights as Glendon’s ball over is out of this world good.
We were good in the second half and shaded it overall, but they’re also a good side and looked decent going forward at times if a little suspect at the back.
Glendon was excellent, calm and composed and his part assist for our second was a highlight. Jackson also had a good game tearing down the wing but can’t help but feel he should have caused even more problems, maybe it’s just that I have such high standards for him now but thought their left back was desperately weak. Difficult to sum up Griffiths, it was an absolute howler for their first (not his first either) but I thought the 88 minutes that followed were his best in a Chester shirt. He wasn’t overly tested with shots, but the confidence he showed to throw himself out and firmly catch (not punch) balls aimed in to a big, lumpy and annoying forward line was impressive and a welcome change from him.
Ventured in to King’s Lynn for a look around before the game, not the best of places really with little there. Got a friendly welcome from the locals though to be fair, definitely had some proper strange fans by the segregation fence though.
A neutral would have been pretty impressed with both sides I'd say.
This is a perfect assessment of the game in my opinion.
Interesting on King’s Lynns forum and social media how they’re waxing lyrical about the Chester performance, hell of a team/squad that has been put together that’s for sure.
