Tuesday 8 September 1998: Meadow Park

CITY v. Weymouth

Dr Martens League Premier Division


City's Team

Rosenior made changes to the side that had lost 2-0 at King's Lynn but still failed to find a winning formula against a hard working Weymouth side. Assistant manager Steve Fergusson found himself the surprise casualty with midfielder Andy Tucker drafted back in to the eleven. Rosenior also experimented with a new look back line, right-back Jon Holloway appearing to play on the right of three centre-backs with Wyatt and Hemmings as wing-backs.

Weymouth opened the brighter with new signing Dean Birkby keen to make a good impression for the Terras. However City's new look back three with Holloway slotting in as a right sided centre back held firm. While Weymouth dominated possession City had the better chances with Mings, Mainwaring, Wyatt and Hemmings all guilty of squandering chances.

City seemed to have done enough for a half time lead when Adie Mings was felled in the area after 35 minutes. In the absence of Steve Fergusson it was Gary Thorne who stepped up to take the kick, but he blasted his effort straight at Myers in the Weymouth goal.

The second half saw City dominant with continual pressure still failing to yield the vital goal. Strange refereeing decisions did little to help with Mingsy once again singled out for special persecution. Tucker grafted well in midfield, and Wyatt came more into the game down the right hand side. Good work between him and Webb gave Tucker a clear sight of goal, but his textbook header downwards managed to bounce clear over the bar.

City held on to a point and while Leroy will be happier with the defensive aspects of this performance City still have to hit top gear going forward. They will want to find their best form quickly as Saturday sees the visit of table toppers Nuneaton Borough who test their 100% record at Meadow Park.
