Ely took on bottom club Wivenhoe Town at the Unwin today and after the high scoring games of late we were hoping to see the Robins bag a few more today.
The first chance of the game fell to Wivenhoe in the 2nd minute, but after that it was pretty much one way traffic with Ely having all the chances the best of the chances falling to Josh Bridgeman, who hit the post on 20 minutes and then came close again after some fantastic play by David Wilson 4 minutes later. Ely seemed to have corner after corner and shot after shot, but the ball didn't seem to want to go in the goal and Austen Diaper rattled the woodwork on 39 minutes when he hit the crossbar, but at half time it was still somehow 0-0.
Wivenhoe started the second half a bit more livelier and had a few chances in the first 10 minutes after the break, but then Ely got back in the game and finally on 62 minutes they got a goal through a Sam Parkinson penalty. Ely continued to dominate after that, but the game finished 1-0 and was a bit flat in comparison to the high octane games of late.
