Old Wulfs 3-2 Droitwich Spa

By

Disappointing display allows Wulfs all 3 points

The Saltmen put in another below par display at Old Wulfrunians on Saturday to fall to their 5th league defeat of the season at the Brinsford Stadium.

Droitwich started the brighter of the two sides, and Ben Tilbury was a constant thorn in the side of the hosts - the forward try his luck from range on three occasions which all narrowly missed the target, whilst Haydn Morris also came close.

A very well organised Old Wulfs side were always a threat going forward, and as Spa failed to clear the ball, Richard Palmer timed his run perfectly to steal in at the far post and finish well from close range just before the half hour mark.

Just 5minutes later with the Saltmen still reeling, a pin-point cross from the right by the busy Jake Pearson was met by Nathan Lodge, whose looping header gave Coombes in the Droitwich goal no chance.

Spa looked more lively after the re-start but struggled to really carve out any noteworthy opportunities.
They were given a life-line ten minutes into the half when Chris Conway was brought down in the box. The front-man stepped up to take the spot-kick but Jamie Bostock in the home goal made a good save down to his right, only for Conway to tap home the follow up.

Spa kept plugging away with Tilbury and Conway having half chances, but the hosts got a third when a cute through ball allowed Scott Stevenson in and with Coombes in no-mans-land the striker rounded the Spa 'keeper to roll into an empty net to restore Wulfs' 2-goal advantage.

Droitwich replied once more with the goal of the game from Chris Conway whose fierce half volley from the edge of the area flew past Bostock and in off the post.

It was too little, too late for Spa though, and they succumbed to their first defeat of 2019.
