Tamworth (H) 15/09/2018
13th Sep, 2018 at 7:27pm
 
After the FA Cup last Saturday, the Trawlerboys resume league action on Saturday as we renew our acquaintances with Tamworth in a throwback to the early conference north days at the Amber Dew Events stadium.

Both teams find themselves in a very different situation these days, with Tamworth seemingly going through the motions resulting in the resignation this week of their head coach. The big question is how will their players react? They currently sit 14th, played 6 with only 1 win and 3 draws so far in a season they hoped to be favourites for at least the play-offs. Football really can be an odd game.

Tamworths fans thoughts on the game here: http://www.tamworthfans.co.uk/forum_posts.asp?TID=1738&PID=13872&title=lower-sof...

Even their fans seem very pessimistic on their teams chances on coming away with anything goes to show the torrid start to the season so far and also out of the FA cup with a defeat to Hednesford last weekend.

Our last encounter (14/11/2014) saw a thrilling 3-2 for town coming back from 2-0 to win 3-2, Robert Eagle being the hero that day; http://www.lowestofttownfc.co.uk/teams/50851/match-centre/1-1000964

With the resignation of their head coach it will be a tricky game to call, but town will have the home crowd behind them and a cup victory and be keen to get back to it on home turf and notch up another 3 points and positive display to keep the home faithful happy.

Come on you blues!!

Tamworth grabbed the points today thanks to their game plan, executed perfectly, that exploited our young sides naivety and lack of discipline.

As expected the Staffordshire outfit employed their strength at breaking up play with niggly fouls and gamesmanship ably assisted by a set of officials who were just as naive as the home side, and were succoured and encouraged by the Lambs into issuing yellow cards at every opportunity. I counted seven in total but can't recall a really nasty foul all game.

Lowestoft started brightly and might have taken the lead had Bammant found the target rather than sliding it wide on five minutes. On the half hour mark the big number 9 did find the net but his effort was ruled offside. Putnins kept out the couple of speculative shots that Tamworth managed with good reaction saves and half time arrived without score.

The second period followed a similar pattern with both sides failing to string together more than three passes before forward moves broke down.
It really was a dire game to watch and the deadlock wasn't broken until a Brown punt over the visitors back four found Higgs, who let fly with a right footed strike that flew past Singh into the top right hand corner 1-0. 64 mins.

Rather than building on our advantage and controlling play we became involved in spats with the visitors all over the park.
It seemed that as a group we  lost sight of our quest and resorted to mixing it with the bigger more powerful Midlands outfit. This culminated in Bammant kicking the ball away in frustration at yet another dubious refereeing decision and it was no surprise that he received a second yellow for his actions. This made our afternoon all the more difficult and shortly afterwards Tamworth, through Finn, found the equaliser with a fabulous strike from 35 yards out.  1-1 mins 73 mins.

Buoyed by this strike the visitors swept forward and minutes later they took the lead when Putnins could only parry a shot into the path of Lait who squeezed the ball home.
Five minutes later Waite added a third for the visitors.....3-1 game over.

Late on Brown lifted the spirits with a fierce drive that had Singh stretching to make the save but it was too little too late. Tamworth ran down the clock by keeping possession and even the addition of Fowkes with barely minutes remaining couldn't provide a breakthrough.

At the end we looked a dishevelled well beaten side who having taken the lead didn't have the experience to see out the game. Losing Bammant for such stupidity simply played into Tamworths hands and they exploited their one man advantage with clinical efficiency.

I have previously commented on our lack of discipline but today we simply lost the plot. Tamworths tactics wound us up all game and we suffered the consequences.
Let's hope that this afternoons sobering events will serve as a lesson for the team and we learn from the experience and don't repeat the same mistakes in future games.

cracking report rd.
Just  a couple of observations from my perch.
They were the poorest opposition seen so far up the meadow
with a distinct lacl of pace and guile at the back and in midfield , we did very little to exploit that, probably as we had similar restrictions- an area to work on.
The lack of discipline was primarily the so called senior & experienced Adam and Andrew ( shockingly bad fouls yet again ) and brainless Bammo - at least he was having a decent game .

the ref- atrociously bad - so many wrong calls on challenges and many to our advantage- had no idea what constituted a tackle or a foul - worst i have seen for years.
Apart from that the likes of matt , kieran and connor did well enough, I would say let down by players who should know better but will seemingly never learn.

Cant add much more to RDs report, a physical game made much more over physical by the clearly inept officials the referee clearly needs to go back and stick to reffing at Normanston park on a Sunday. Clearly that is where he usually refs...

I was surprised with the starting line up, Fowkes on the bench anyone? It seems there is a lot of squad rotation and my worry is the team isn't settling in, the league has started and we are no longer playing experimental friendlies.

Such a shame Bammant gets himself sent off for a petulant kick away of the ball almost knocking over 2 loyal supporters in the process for which i hope an apology is forthcoming if not already made.

Onwards to a much more important game next weekend with 9k up for grabs and a passage into the next round of what is the the FA cup qualifying round fairy tale. Enjoy the day whoever is going, im assuming Bammant wont be available but at least Josh Curry will be back.
