Purple Monkeys Midweek Football Club 2 vs 2 Hibernians Academicals FC

2 points dropped and a disappointing result which puts a serious dent in our title ambitions with only 4 matches left to go.    We started off slowly, but took the lead after Joe got on the end of Moans cross.  We missed a few chances during this period (Harrys thigh/knee/shin effort the pick of the bunch) and instead of taking a 2 goal lead, we found ourselves 2-1 down at HT after a contentious penalty and a peach of a strike.   We equalised in the second half after Harry’s misskick (notice a pattern there?) somehow found its way and slammed into Sergio, bouncing of his chest and looping over the Hibs keeper.  A goals’ a goal.  We created a few more chances but just couldn’t kill off the stubborn Hibs defence.  There was time for drama 2min from the end when Joe got on the end of a quickly taken freekick and after having his first shot blocked by the keeper, he scored with his second try.  Unfortunately, the ref chose to be influenced by the Hibs loud shouts and called offside to our absolute dismay.  Tough for MOM but Felipe gets it for a commanding performance at the back. 

We think we should have come away with the three points but the match could have gone either way. A good strong defensive performance this week. New debutants Harry and Rohan added some stability. Bucko had to goal in goal until Rohan turned up, they scored from a corner after some non-marking, but this was the only defensive mistake we made all match.   Charlie created and scored his only penalty, although he claims there was another more clear cut one later. Lippy scored a wonder goal to cap a man of the match performance. Bucko has a theory that Lippy needs to moan at everyone in order to play well?
