A first half strike by Fleetdown United B saw Wilderpark go down by the only goal of the game.

The Park were slow to get into their stride after an exhausting Smiths Premier League Cup Final on Thursday evening.

Fleetdown had the better of the first half exchanges and were unlucky not to increase their lead when a shot hit the underside of the crossbar. The Park played to deep allowing the home team too much room in midfield although playing some nice one touch football at times.

Wilderpark had much more of the play during the second period with Joe McLoughlin pushing forward along the right flank. Chances came and went particularly during the last quarter when Fleetdown were under intense pressure.

A shot was cleared off the goal line with the keeper well beaten but both the referee and assistant linesman were well behind play to make a decision. Substitute Frank Puxty, who had just come on, struck a shot against an upright with the goal at his mercy and Steve Burgess had a shot saved by the keeper’s legs.

It was not all one way traffic since keeper Christian Esposito was called upon to make one point blank save and Fleetwood almost caught the Park three times on the break.

On the balance of play the Park deserved to take a point but Secretary Derek Hodge said after the game “that the lads had had a demanding week with three matches and it was a creditable performance particularly so soon after the Cup-final”.
