How good was it to finally get a home game played and get back to winning ways after the two previous poor defeats.

In the 1st half Brandon took a deserved 1-0 lead which they held on to until H/T. Crook will have gone into the dressing rooms delighted at only being a goal down. It was either a tactical master class or a damn good kick up the backside which Crook received a half time from the management team, the second half was much better from Crook but Brandon were dangerous on the break and could have extended their lead before Christian "Bisto" Holliday intercepted a loose pass in midfield surged forward and hit an unstoppable shot into the bottom left hand corner. Soon after David "Busta" Paul was tripped in the box and Chris Emms converted the penalty. Then came the goal of the game a shot from 30 yards out from Daniel "Johnta" Johnston looked to be going wide only for it to curl in a the last minute leaving the keeper no chance. Brandon then pulled one back to send the tension higher. Eventually Crook killed the game off when the evergreen Chris Emms caught out Brandon pushing for an equaliser to score a quite fortuitous goal that hit the post and went in off the defender.

If we can carry that second half performance into the remainder of the season we will be ok, but if we play as we did the previous two and a half games then we could easily be dragged back in it. I am confident a corner has been turned and things are looking rosy in the BLACK AND AMBER garden again.
