This was a hugely disappointing result for the final home game of the season, but the visitors took their chances and the Blues were left reflecting on a performance below their best.
‘Goyt’ did in fact score with their first real attack when SAM JOHNSON put a chance away in the 18th minute. There was more disappointment to come when the same player capitalized on a defensive error in the 33rd minute. The Bluebirds were able at least to keep the game alive when they pulled a goal back on the stroke of half-time, GREG WALTERS putting the ball away after some good work out on the left by Danny Williams.
Once again Goytre went two ahead when DAVID BROWN scored in the 70th minute, and the Blues’ fight-back was not going to be enough. They can at least reflect with credit on the fact that there were six Academy players on the pitch by the end and it was good to see that it was one of those players, FRASER FINLAY, who scored the second goal, becoming the third Blues player in two games to score a first of this kind.
The Bluebirds now need 4 points from their last 2 games if they are to clinch runners-up spot. On Saturday they travel to play Cwmbran Celtic, kick-off 2.30.
