Penalty Disappointment in League Cup

Posted on 12th October 2017

Penalty disappointment continues to dog us as we are knocked out of the Brookes Mileson League Cup at the 1st Round stage.

We have missed penalties in recent League matches at home to West Allotment and away at Heaton Stannington and this poor form continued last night as the Cup tie went into penalties.

The game against local rivals Willington had ended 1-1.  Our goal was scored by Jack Pounder just 36 seconds into the second half.  However, Willington equalised in the 76th minute.

Both teams had glorious chances to win the game before the end, but no team could take them.

Brandon missed the 2nd and 5th spot kick with Willington missing their first.  Ultimately it meant we lost 4-3 on penalties.
