Camberley ease to win over ten man firsts
By Gary Brigden
A double from Camberley's Steve Duff saw the first team slip to their second league defeat of the season
We were back in action against Camberley Town, hoping to bounce back from their first loss of the season on the bank holiday against Raynes Park Vale, but were still missing Daryl Cooper-smith due to suspension
A few changes for this game from last week starting with Ollie Ellaway being put back in between the sticks, and Oluwadamilola Nickels coming back into the starting line-up replacing the injured Craig Nelson. Getting his first appearance of the season is new signing Malachi Robinson.
The first team didn’t start the game off to well, after only ten minutes we found our self behind after a defensive mistake ended up with the ball being given away just outside of the box that Camberley's Steve Duff made no mistake to slot home
We started to get our heads back into the game and started to find some possession and started to be able to get the ball up the field to create some chances to get our self-back in to the game
However Camberley extended their lead after only 23 minutes when they were awarded a freekick that resulted in Duff's strike taking a deflection of the out stretched leg of one of our defenders to put into the near post giving Ellaway no chance to make a save
We started to struggle to get back into the game and it was starting to show as after 29 minutes we picked up our first yellow card of the game that was show to Ferdinando
Two minutes later on and we were down to ten men when Ferdinando was shown his marching orders after picking up his second yellow card minutes later for a foul
The first half came to a close leaving a big pressure to come out and perform in the second 45 minutes to try get our self-back into the game
We made two substitutes at the start of the first half with Nickels and Johnny Akoto being replaced by Guy Baskerville and Francois Gabbidon
In the 48th minute we picked up another booking this time being shown to Dan Dean for a foul. We made our third and final change of the game in the 62nd minute with Auletta replacing Hendry
Not much happened for the rest of the second half, we struggled to get a real footing in the game and couldn’t finish of any real chances that we were able to create.
Camberley closed out the game winning 2-0 giving us our second loss of the season
