Bromsgrove Sporting midfielder Robbie Bunn writes for The Standard in his weekly column and reflects on the victory over Boldmere St Michaels and the midweek penalty shoot-out defeat to Littleton.
SATURDAY, at Boldmere, was a day I had been looking forward to as it was the first chance I’ve had to start a game in a month which has very much dragged!
We got off to a terrible start, conceding a sloppy goal very early on in proceedings.
The reaction from the boys was excellent, with the side showing the desire and commitment to allow ourselves the opportunity to get back into the game.
Our first was an own goal, quite shocking really, and then I found a little bit of space around 20 yards out and luckily for me the shot found the bottom corner and we were in front.
After that we were dominant with (Jason) Cowley and (Sean) Brain causing all sorts of problems for the opposition and in the end I felt we thoroughly deserved the 4–1 victory.
On Tuesday night, it was a game and a result to forget sharply for the fans and for the lads.
Littleton out-battled, outworked and most of all out-played us for the majority of the game.
The early goal really helped them and filled them with the confidence that they could get a result on the night and that they certainly did.
The gaffer called me over with around 25 minutes to go and told us to get warm as we would be going on to try and rescue something from the game.
Luckily for me, I had again found myself with some space just outside of the box and my left-footed drive found a way past my brother Brendon in the Littleton goal.
We found our way to penalties but again Littleton came out on top despite some great saves from Reece (Francis).
