Match report – Luncarty v Newburgh

v
A poor second half cost Newburgh at Brownlands Park on Saturday. The ‘Burgh faced Luncarty, who were yet to drop a point in the league, with new signing Andy Wainwright in the middle of the park making his debut. Newburgh started on the attack pressing the game high up the park not allowing Luncarty to settle on the ball. Scott Sutherland and Evan Stanfield worked hard defending from the front line harassing the home defence whenever they were in possession. Newburgh created a half chance in the 10th minute with Sutherland unable to get the ball under control from a Scarborough diagonal ball. Luncarty worked their way into the game and started to pose a threat in the forward area with Clark, Hutchison and Cameron in the ‘Burgh backline being called upon to thwart any attacks before there were opportunities to score. Leadbetter and Elseedawy in the middle of the park were working together with Wainwright to stifle any possession before there was a threat. The game looked to be deadlocked as half time approached. Newburgh had a corner that came to nothing and a quick break out by Luncarty caught Newburgh on their heels. A driven cross from the left-hand side was met by Mills who made no mistake from 6 yards out to provide the home side with the half time advantage. Newburgh would have been wounded by the loss of this late goal but with a strong first half performance behind them they had no reason to doubt that they could get themselves back into the game. However, the Luncarty side who came out in the second half were keen to add to their lead and they attacked from the off. An Anton penalty conversion that just slipped under Sutherland gave Luncarty the comfort of the second goal in the 51st minute and from then on Newburgh struggled to defend the onslaught that they faced. Luncarty added goals from Fergus in the 58th minute and when Newburgh thought things couldn’t get much worse a 4th goal was added when a Mollison cross evaded everyone and looped under the bar in the 60th minute. Scott Hudson shuffled his pack introducing Fraser for Elseedawy, Edwards for Leadbetter and Ben Jenkins made his competitive debut replacing Scott Sutherland. A fifth goal for Luncarty in the 69th minute was added by Green and the final nail in Newburgh’s coffin was struck on full time with Yates adding the home sides 6th of the day. Manager Scott Hudson was disappointed with the second half but took heart from the opening 45-minute performance “This is a harsh lesson for the lads. We cannot afford to switch off against the top teams which is what happened in the second half. It is really disappointing as we more that held our own and were probably the better team in the first half.  The second half capitulation is something we will have to talk about at training as it is not what we are about”.

Match report

v

Newburgh’s fine run of early season form was put to the sword on Saturday with a visit from Kinnoull, one of the teams tipped to be towards the top of the league come the pointy end of the season.

Kinnoull were worthy or their status early in the game as they played some superb direct football pushing forwards through midfield and threatening the ‘Burgh goal on several occasions in the opening 15 minutes of play. Newburgh settled into the game and produced their first chance on goal in the 20th minute when Scott Sutherland picked up a through ball from Jamie Gay but the strikers shot was gathered in by Osinski in the Kinnoull goal.

Newburgh opened their account in the 28th minute with a wonderful goal from Scott Sutherland, the ‘Burgh striker picked up a neat pass from Gay and drove in on goal, as Osinski narrowed the angle Sutherland drove a shot low into the bottom corner beyond the Kinnoull keepers reach.

Newburgh drove hard at Kinnoull to add to their lead, Sutherland had another chance in the box from a Scarborough cross but the ball would not settle for him to get a clean strike away, A Jamie Gay strike looked goal bound but for a block by Frydrychowicz who felt the force of the shot full in his face. The second goal would not come for Newburgh and Kinnoull began to, once again, create chances. A Davies shot struck the post but with Calum Sutherland in the Newburgh goal on top form this was the closest that the visitors came to grabbing an equaliser. Cameron and Clark in the middle of the Newburgh defence were calmly thwarting any threat and as half time arrived Newburgh were now on top in the game.

Kinnoull started the second half at pace throwing everything they had at Newburgh searching for and equaliser but with the ‘Burgh back four having a superb game they were unable to create anything that really threatened to make an impact. Johal and Scarborough were defending narrowly and with Cameron and Clark in great form they were coping well and additionally creating opportunities going forwards. Newburgh added a goal just on the hour and once again it was the inform Scott Sutherland who added to his already impressive seasons tally. Having chased down a through ball that Osinski was called off his line in a hurry to clear, Sutherland got himself back onside to pick up a pass from Redpath. Sutherland cool as a cucumber still had loads to do with two defenders baring down on him he managed to turn and crack a shot that took a deflection catching Osinski wrong footed as it bulged the back of the Kinnoull net.

Newburgh’s third and decisive goal followed directly from the re-start. A poor first touch by a Kinnoull defender from the kick off was pounced upon by Sutherland, he slipped a pass into the path of strike partner Jamie Gay who drove into the box and slotted the ball past Osinski to give Newburgh the all-important third goal.

The loss of the third goal sucked the life out of Kinnoull and they were unable to cohesively create any real threat going forwards. Newburgh secured the majority of possession and managed the game well to a conclusion.

Manager Scott Hudson was pleased with the performance “We set out a game plan and I said to the team that they would have to concentrate 100% for the full game to make sure we were matching Kinnoull across the park. The lads stuck to this and we have just said to them in the changing room that this is probably one of our best performances since we have been at the club. The caveat to this is that we now need to maintain this level of performance week on week as there are no easy games in this league”.

Newburgh look forwards to a trip up the A9 to Luncarty on Saturday to face the last team to hold a 100% league record. Kick-off is at 2pm and updates will be available through our social media channels throughout the game.
