5 star performance

This was our best performance of the season and our biggest win. From the second minute free kick by Chris Jones to the final whistle we gave an assured performance and were clearly the better side. We took the lead in the second minute, Chris Jones with a 25 yard free kick lacked power but it completely deceived the Celtic keeper, hit the post and went in. Ben Keen should have made it 2-0 on 4 minutes when following a corner his left footed shot hit the crossbar. Celtic had a half chance on 14 minutes when they picked up a loose ball and crossed the ball to the far post but their attacker was unable to make contact. We went two up on 16 minutes, Liam Griffiths played the ball forward for Sean Hanbury on the left side of the area, he swivelled and shot over the keeper and into the net. Chris Jones made it 3-0 on 25 minutes from another free kick from a similar position to his first. This time he drove the ball hard and low past the wall and just inside the post. On 35 minutes Ioan Evans who was enjoying plenty of the ball and had the beating of his defender crossed the ball for Liam Griffiths but his header hit the crossbar and went out for a goal kick. Celtic’s only chance of getting back into the game was to score an early goal in the second half. They had an opportunity on 51 minutes when they shot from the penalty spot area only for Aaron Jones to make a fine save. We sealed the result on 57 minutes following a foul on Liam Griffiths. Chris Jones pinpoint free kick was nodded in by Liam from a couple of yards. He almost scored again on 67 minutes only for the keeper to make a fine diving save. Carlos Indjai netted his first goal since returning following a corner on 74 minutes. A corner was played short and then back to Chris Jones and one again his cross made it easy for Carlos to score. We used all five subs but we still had virtually total control for a vital three points.
