SHORTWOOD SETBACK

The curse of the missed penalty featured yet again as Town lost their unbeaten away record in the Evo-Stik League this season after going down to a 2-1 defeat at Shortwood United yesterday evening (28 October). On the overall balance of play, Taunton can count themselves unfortunate not to come away with something but were unable to capitalise on several promising openings. Town came mightily close to grabbing the lead inside the first five minutes when Steve Murray latched onto the remnants of an Ash Thomas intervention on Ben Kirk to drive the ball against the base of the post. Jamie Price's awkward cross was then tipped over by Tom King on his bar before Shortwood had their first attempt, a quick break leading to a Ross Langworthy shot being saved by Lloyd Irish. Kirk's ground shot was comfortably gathered by King before the hosts went ahead on 36 minutes slightly against the run of play. A long clearance from Ash Thomas landed conveniently for Matt Bennett down the left channel to collect and advance before passing to Langworthy inside the box who rifled the ball high into the net from a very narrow angle after his first go had been pushed out by Irish. The Peacocks had a golden chance to equalise two minutes into the second half, Price taking a Jamie Short pass into the area before being tripped by Jake Lee. However Price's resultant penalty lacked conviction and was kept out by King diving to his right. Price's header was then saved after Short's cross was flicked on before another Price, Shortwood's Adam, crashed a drive off the bar as the home side began to profit on Town conceding possession too easily. A speculative long ball from Nick Humphreys seemed to be misjudged by Steve Kingdon, allowing Marley Thomas to run on and make it 2-0 with a clinical lob on 65 minutes to leave Town with it all to do. A Dom Njoya break nearly saw Thomas score his second but his effort was touched onto the post by Irish before Town hoisted themselves back in it on 78 minutes. Aidan Chainey made inroads down the left and found Craig Herrod whose reverse pass fell in to the path of Murray and he drilled the ball past King despite the Wood keeper getting a hand on it. The goal galvanised the Peacocks as they turned up the pressure - Chainey's corner ended with Price poking the ball over the bar from six yards, and then Josh Wadham volleyed wide from Herrod's cross before Shortwood had the last word, a defensive slip allowing Marley Thomas a run on goal but he was foiled by Lloyd Irish as he tried to round him. Match report now online.

Reaction - manager Leigh Robinson observed:" I'm frustrated to lose a game that we were well worthy of a point in. In hindsight the turning point of the game was the penalty miss a minute after half time which would have put us level and given us the momentum. Crucially though we missed and they scored another which gave them a further lift. We finished the game strongly which was a positive but failed to take our chances. Goals change games and unfortunately they were better in the attacking box than us tonight."
