Victories and clean sheets help build team-spirit

FT: Leicester Nirvana 0    2 Tamworth

13 July 2019

Tamworth travelled to Hamilton Park, the tidy community home of their hosts, for the first time as a first team in the second pre-season run out of 2019-20.
Smith (celebrating his birthday), Danylysyn and Baillie changed a few things around after the game v WBA and for the most part Tamworth controlled proceedings.
A clash of heads between Fry and Gough after 20 minutes halted the game for a long period and although both players were OK to leave the field bandaged but under their own steam, both required meidcal attention off site.
WIlliams forced the home keeper into a close range stop on 23 and Beejer and Creaney forced Nirvana to clear their lines on 27 with well struck efforts in quick succession.
Tamworth's operning goal came on 35 when Williams sloted ome from Creaney's through ball (1-0, 35 mins)
Beejers provided ammunition but Creaney's header was well saved and in added time Singh was called into action at the other end as Nirvana made some rare forays into The Lambs box.

HT: Leicester Nirvana 0    1 Tamworth

There were three half time changes for The Lambs and on 52 Waite saw his low shot pushed around the post for a corner.
A further 2 subs made it 5 in total for Tamworth on 58 and a minute later Waite was denied again.
Clifton came back on after a five minute rest on 63 and continued to perform well in defence.

Moran went close with 15 remaining but he turned provider for Waite on 84 with a threaded pass which the latter rolled uder the advancing keeper (2-0, 84 mins)
Hoenes almost capped a good display with a goal, doing all the hard work to take the ball down and into the box only to be deined by the keper shortly before th final whistle blew.
