Acks 0 - 1 Halkirk
A long overdue three points as we finally get back to winning ways.
A combination of holidays, injuries and work commitments meant we were without Pup, Mikey, Charlie, Bainer, Del and the two Blackjocks - so, it was a very threadbare squad that Nige had at his disposal.
We made a great start to the game and took an early lead when the returning Rusty's inswinging corner was met by Gunny at the front post and his header found the back of the net with the aid of a slight deflection.
We could've increased our lead further in the first half as Kitten had a couple of great chances that he was unable to convert and were perhaps a tad fortunate to go in ahead as the home side hit the woodwork twice as the half wore on.
Half Time 0 - 1
The second half was a bit of a rearguard action from us but we were able to contain them reasonably well and looked quite dangerous on the break at times.
We were able to restrict them to long shots and the only time they got in behind us, Pies kept them out with a tremendous double save.
Tom could've made the last ten minutes more comfortable for us but he put his lob wide when through one-on-one with the keeper but we were able to keep the clean sheet and hold on for an important win.
A great win for us given the circumstances and the lack of bodies but the team deserved it for the amount of work and effort everyone put in.
Hopefully this will be a platform for us to build on for the upcoming matches and we can get some more points on the board.
