Terrors

1-4

Leatherhead

Wilson

(0-2)



The Terrors slipped to another defeat but can claim they didn’t get the rub of the green with the decisions or the chances created. In the opening six minutes Chace O’Neill forced a good save and then hit the post with Eddie Dines having a close range effort saved. Leatherhead took the lead in the 26th minute when Sol Patterson-Bohner was adjudged to have fouled Lee Minshull in the area and Tom Derry converted the penalty.


It was 2-0 to the visitors in the 39th minute when we failed to clear a corner and D’Sean Theobalds knocked in the loose ball. In the 43rd minute Danny Bassett was through on goal appeared to be fouled and saw his shot saved.

----------------------------

After the break Tooting enjoyed a good spell with Isaiah Jones firing just wide of the post, Hussein Siklawi had a shot pushed away and Dominic Morgan-Griffiths had a point blank header brilliantly saved. However the Tanners weathered the storm and added a third after 73 minutes when Matte Pierson made a fine stop from Tom Richards free-kick but Tom Derry was on hand to knock in the rebound.


Five minutes later Tanners sub Reece Williams-Bowers made it 4-0 with virtually his first touch after being set up by Nana Boakye-Yiadom . Three minutes from time Nana Boakye-Yiadom burst through our ranks but his low shot hit the post and came out. In stoppage time Jordan Wilson reduced the arrears with a 25yard drive which took a slight deflection and then Hussein Siklawi rifled in a fine shot but the keeper saved well.

It was honours even but there was a worrying moment in stoppage time when Isaiah Jones appeared to suffer a serious neck injury and had to be taken to hospital by ambulance.  In the 11th minute Nathan Elder went close for Tonbridge Angels when his header hit the post. The Terrors replied with a well worked move which saw Isaiah Jones just miss the target. In the closing minutes of the half Nathan Elder hit the bar for the visitors with another header and Peter Wedgeworth fired over from a free-kick.

Early in the second period Tooting forced a series of corners and from one of them Jordan Wilson fired just wide. Dominic Morgan-Griffiths then went on a mazy run and saw his effort flash past the post. At the other end Matte Pierson made a fine close range save from Andrew Sesay. Tooting put in a grandstand finish with Eddie Dines having a shot cleared off the line and Reis Stanislaus had a low strike well saved by the keeper. Summing up a good performance by the team but just missing that decisive goal to win the game.

Terrors

Morgan-Griffiths


This was a game of three halves - or to be more precise. three parts.  Two belonged to Tooting and the one in the middle to a Borough side who were playing their fourth game in eight days.  They have, however, been in tremendous form and had certainly not forgotten the drubbing received at Imperial Fields back in November and were not going to lie down and concede a first home defeat against the Terrors.


Tooting raced out of the blocks and in a storming ten minutes had plenty of chances to build a useful lead. Omar Folkes failed to react to a simple close range chance and then hesitated when put through on goal - play to the whistle Omar!   Jordan Wilson, at his marauding best, and Dominic MG also tested the acrobatic Minter before a moment of Red Sea defending gave the experienced Cumberbatch acres of space to pick is spot and fire past Pierson.


And so after eleven minutes  the game turned on its head as Tootings players retreated into their shells.  With no discernable backup plan they lost focus, mistakes became commonplace and heads dropped. Despite a couple of of decent Chace O’Neil shots

reaching half time without further mishap was a minor miracle,

—––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––-


Although Tooting started the second period less frenetically than the first they steadily built some momentum and, after surviving another Cumberbatch piledriver, proceeded to take control.


Spencer continually caused problems down the right flank and Jordan Wilson continued to buzz like a bee wearing boxing gloves, but it was the replacement of Eddie Dines by Reis Stabislaus coupled with the moving forward of Dominic Morgan-Griffiths that signalled that Terrors were going to go for broke. Indeed it was the newly liberated DMG who found the equaliser with a stunning 20 yard drive that dipped beautifully into the top of the net having evaded the fingertips of Minter.


The closing stages offered both sides chances.  Jordon Wilson got a powerful flying touch onto another Spencer cross, but was denied by the acrobatic Minter.  At the other end Cumberbatch was denied his second by the crossbar. The final chance fell to Tooting - and whilst Minter was beaten, a goal-line defensive boot was not.


 One second half moment summed up the season in a nutshell. Jeuvan Spencer powered his way to the byline before delivering the type of low cross that Premier League forwards would kill for. But instead of  finding a clutch of eager strikers on the 6 yard line ready to convert a simple tap in, there was no one there -or indeed anywhere near.  The prone Spencer punched the ground with frustration, almost in tears,  No commitment issues there!-


So, Tootings fate is back in our own hands. If support equated to points then Terrors would have been safe long ago - the backing from behind the goal was both passionate and incessant and it was great to see the players making a point of acknowledging them at the final whistle.


Tooting & Mitcham United FC : Pierson, Domingo-Carrington, Wedgeworth,  Dines(Stanislaus), Patterson-Bohner, Drage, Spencer, Morgan-Griffiths, Folkes, Wilson, Chace O’Neill(Clements). Unused subs Rowe, Bassett, Bennett, MacFoy-Johnson.
