PROMOTION DREAM OVER


The Peacocks' hopes of success in the Play-Offs ended in major disappointment as they lost 3-1 at Tiverton Town in the Semi-Final yesterday evening (26th April). It was still all to play for at the interval after a goalless first 45 minutes but a quick breakthrough by the hosts set them on their way to victory against a Town side that failed to do themselves justice with their second half performance. Town had a great opportunity to take the lead after just seven minutes when a throw-in found Jordan Rogers unmarked but Tiverton keeper Joe Perry made a fine point-blank stop. Lloyd Irish then made super saves from Tom Bath and a 25 yard drive from Scott Rogers but was finally beaten four minutes into the second half when Levi Landricombe latched onto Tom Gardner's long pass and after his first effort was blocked by Irish, the ball fell kindly for him to net the rebound. Town's chances diminished in an increasingly scrappy game when Ed Palmer was sent off on 79 minutes for bringing down Levi Landricombe before Bath headed in at the near post for a 2-0 lead on 81 minutes. It was game over when Landricombe scored his second of the night three minutes from time with an excellent free kick from 20 yards but Town did manage to pull a goal back in stoppage time when Brett Trowbridge was tripped and Rogers fired home the penalty. It was far too little too late for Town though who missed out in the Play-Offs for the third year running. Tiverton meanwhile will travel to Salisbury for the Final on Bank Holiday Monday.

Reaction - manager Leigh Robinson commented:" You always felt tonight, particularly with it being goalless at half time, that the first goal was going to be more than pivotal. In a close game of very few chances, Tiverton got the break in the box when it mattered with the ball rebounding straight back to the lad after Lloyd's save and of course after that we were chasing it and got caught on the counter. We were on top in the first half but didn't score when it mattered and got punished for it. I think in the last week we have put in three pretty tired performances which is understandable with our workload over the last few months and we needed to score first which would have re-energised us but as the saying goes, goals change games and no better example of that than tonight. Whilst of course we're disappointed, the season should not be remembered for tonight. What we achieved before Christmas did far more for the club than winning tonight could have done and the bigger picture is that it's been a great season where we've created a lot of great memories and entertained plenty of people. The players have given everything over a gruelling 60 game season which perhaps looks like it caught up with us in the last week but personally I'm really proud of them all. Whatever happened tonight we know that this club is in magnificent shape on and off the pitch for the future with what the players have done this year and we'll be back stronger next season."
