On his own up front but Lewis Cook strikes a beauty for 2-0
Following last weeks win over local Rivals Sun Postal, manager Bob Wyatt asked his team for more of the same, against a travelling Langford team.
In the early stages of the game it flowed between the two teams, it was jets who eventually got a grip of the game and started to force there game on the Langford team , but again the poor finishing of chances meant the game remained goalless, however that was to change, finally, in the 20th minute with a well worked move combining the two forwards with Cook crossing for Wells to finish superbly.
However the remainder of the first half continued with an air of frustration, missed chances came and went, team discipline was beginning to fade, was this to be another Welwyn game?
The interval came, time for some harsh words !!
Second half, with the managers words still ringing in their ears, Jets set about finishing this game off, in fairness to the players they responded well, and in the 55th min Wells repaid Cook with a great pass, which he finished off well, and in turn finished off Langfords resistance. Rodriguez and Belau , replaced Woods and Ellicott, to freshen up the midfield, in the 67th min Cook scored his 2nd with an individual effort, Rodriguez rounded it up in the 83rd min with his first Jets goal. Final whistle and overall a decent result 4-0 with a pleasing clean sheet.
Bob Wyatt praised his team for responding to his half time rant and said that overall he was pleased with the team, and said we must learn to be more patience , and need to put a stop to the frustration that sets in, ultimately if our finishing was better games could be won a lot earlier, and in doing so put a stop to it, however we are making chances which is important. Defensively we looked good and didn't allow Langford any real chances, our match fitness is improving as many players never had any pre season. We have many good players , what they need to realise is that when they play as a team , they are so much better.
Craig Gorrie put in what the manager said was his best display in a Jets shirt, to claim the MOM award, in a new position he excelled and was the purge of the Langford Defence, he was heard saying that he was well pleased and was going to Accessorize, tomorrow , and treat his self to a new alace band as a reward to himself.
