'Electric first half' 'Electric first half'

All the best to Oadby

Gary Edgley was pleased with his side's response at Oadby following last week's disappointing stalemate.

The Boston Town boss has also sent the Leicestershire club his best wishes in their efforts to rebuild after coming close to pulling out of the United Counties League last month.

"Travelling to Oadby I really didn’t know what to expect with the troubles they have had over the last few months, but also what made it even more interesting was the good results they have put together over the last month, beating some very good UCL teams," said Edgley.

"I spoke with the players before the game that I was disappointed with our performance and result from the week before. I believe this team is a lot better than what they showed last week and I wanted a response from them today - and I got it!

"Our first half was brilliant, we were solid in defence, dominated the midfield and we were electric going forward, causing the Oadby defence so many problems. The only down side about the first half was the two clear chances we missed before Tiago Nassunculo scored a brace to give us a 2-0 half-time lead.

"Oadby as expected came at us at the start of the second half without creating anything clear cut. We then missed two more chances to really put the game to bed, again frustrating the hell out of me - especially when we then conceded a soft goal to let Oadby back into the game!

"This woke us up and we started to control the game again and had another two golden opportunities to score our thirrd before Fraser Bayliss did get our third with what turned out to be the winner. 

"The game then started to get a bit scrappy with both teams evenly matched until 10 minutes to go when the Oadby forward scored a very good goal to give me a nervous last 10 minutes - but we held on to secure a very deserved three points.

"I would like to wish Oadby all the best in what they are now trying to do and rebuild the team and club, we were made very welcome and enjoyed a nice beer and slice of pizza in a lovely club house after the game."
