Match Report v FC Clacton (h) 2018/19

LONG MELFORD 0 - 1 FC CLACTON

THURLOW NUNN PREMIER - SAT 12 JAN - ATT: 64

It was a close match at Stoneylands this afternoon with only a handful of chances at either end, but FC Clacton had that extra bit of cutting edge in the final third to pick up the three points. 

Melford's injury curse struck again today with Ashley Sloots hobbling off in the first half after making what looked a very innocuous challenge. 

Ash has broken his fibula and joins a long list of injured players at the club - we wish Ash a speedy recovery. Match report from Chenoberet:

With both sides sharing the same points totals this was a crucial fixture for Melford and Clacton. At times the football showed up a nervy grip for both teams, with some poor passing, hasty clearances, and goal scoring chances missed by both teams. 

In the end Clacton showed more intent up front and ended up with all the points as a result. 

In the real world Clacton should have gone ahead after 6 minutes when Matt Eve, from four yards out almost passed the ball back to Melford keeper Sam Mansfield, when the Clacton player might have been expecting to rattle the back of the net. 

There was little of football merit through the first period from either side, with Clacton having more of the ball without any end product. 

The Villagers opened the second half with real promise and intensity, and really paid the penalty later for not scoring while on top. 

A shot from Kieran Michaels went narrowly wide, a blockbuster from Andy Fisher shaved the bar, and then Pablo Chaves got into the box only for keeper Joe Fowler to dive at his feet and block his shot. 

The game pattern then swung to Clacton with some good running off the ball, putting the Melford defence under pressure. 

After the ball was lost by Melford in their own half, play transferred quickly to the other end, where the Clacton midweek arrival from Brightlingsea JAKE CLOWSLEY earned his crust, by converting from five yards out. 

Soon after this the same player was only thwarted by a good defensive block by Anthony Waugh to keep Melford in the game.

Despite The Villagers trying all their formation changes and bringing on substitutes, it was curtains for Melford, and Clacton returned to Essex happy bunnies, whilst Melford have to ponder yet again. 

MELFORD: Mansfield, Michaels, A Sloots (33 injured), D Roy (80), A Waugh, Adams, Pether (70), Brown, Fisher, Chaves, Wingfield 

Subs: Collins (33), Lopez (80) Jackson (70) not used: Chisholm, Bradbury
