4ths Match Report from Si Randall

Accies 4s were left to rue their lack of killer instinct after a surprising home defeat to unfancied Globe Rangers. The failure to convert possession into points when with the wind early on was decisive when the visitors scored twice on the break in the second half.
After a month-long Christmas break the Accies were quickly back into the routine of passing the ball and hitting the wide men, and time and again found themselves in good positions in the final third. Dan Bennett's passing early on gave the impression that he was accidentally wearing an Accies shirt instead of a Globe Rangers one, but soon he was controlling the game in the centre of the park. An Accies goal seemed inevitable and it came after a fine cross from Gary Taylor was tee-ed up by Hatz Morsy and put away by new boy Matt, who impressed up-front on his debut. The lead should have been doubled and the game put to bed, but nobody appeared capable of testing the Globe keeper. The Accies back four of Ethu Crorie, Nick Whitbread, Chris Coates and Si Randall looked solid though, with Whitbread outstanding in the tackle department. Goalie Tom Lloyd had one sharp save to make, but otherwise was pleasingly bored.

The second half saw more of the same, with a failure to penetrate again apparent after good build-up play. Paul Armstrong, facing a lengthy ban if convicted for GBH in a warm-up game, showed some nice touches but he and Taylor could not deliver the killer ball. Soon Globe broke at pace and their right winger showed how to do it by getting in behind Accies' defence and cutting the ball back for the tap-in. And after 70 minutes they scored the winner after Accies helped out by being keener to lunge for the ball than stand up and block the shot.

There was still plenty of time for an equaliser but belief had drained from the home side. Matters were not helped when Morsy injured his knee while jumping up and down in fury at a refereeing decision, and Rob Welsh showed how valuable he is on the right wing by proving that he can't kick it with his left.

Accies did not play badly in this game and if matches were won on possession or corners awarded then it would have been a rout. We need to develop more of a cutting edge around the opposition box if we are going to avoid more frustrating encounters like this one.
