Unless Ball isn't fully fit he and Batten must play, both excellent today.

However, after this woeful start we began to get into the game and got a break when their keeper came rushing out when he didn't need to and floored Watto. And we finally scored a penalty.

Second half was more even, although Sutton always looked the more dangerous. We stood firm though with only a couple of real scares - one where they 'scored' but the ball had gone out before the cross and right at the death when Stearn lined up a shot but it was well blocked.

So no major change but it was good to stop the losing run and it is something to take forward.

Oh, and Owers will please those who like a manager on his feet shouting at the players.

I don't remember him from the first time round as I have only supported City for 6 years but this, and things I have read about him,   Very Happy make me like him already.

Excellent news.

More excellent news.

I think the slick, passing game can partly be put down to the pitch. Whether we will see the same at the quagmire awaiting us at Havant is debatable. We played similarly at Maidstone.

I'm sure Havant's pitch will be better by the time we eventually play them, which I expect will be April.

He came across to us at the start of the second half and indicated that he had been kicked in the face by the tumbling Watto, therefore Watto was brought down by his trailing chin!
The keeper's chin was nowhere near Watkins when he started to go down, but may have met Watkins' boot when his feet went behind him as he went down.

think that may have been a tongue in cheek comment from the headmaster.......

Certainly tongue in cheek for the keeper.

Sutton manager's post match comments worth a listen particularly on the determination of the Bath players. He questions why they hadn't shown that for the previous manager. Looks like his scout had perhaps seen a different Bath team. ...
