Hindringham 0, Acle 4
Hindringham manager Jim Blandford was left puzled. “How can a team perform so well the previous week and so poorly this week, with a large crowd watching, is beyond me.”
Hindringham started off in a 4-3-3 formation with skipper David Coslett returning to the midfield with Dan Peczkowski in place of Jonathan Clipston and Yiotos Alamanos.
Hindringham started slowly and did not seem to have any pattern to their play. Acle were defending well against the strong wind, and were creating chances. Richard Osler's handling in goal was first class.
Play throughout the half was pretty even, with both sides having half-chances. Hindringham's defence was being well controlled by Jason West, who was winning most of the aerial balls. Hindringham failed to get any width to their game throughout the half. Acle came out in the second half and looked a totally different side. Hindringham backed off and let the visitors control the play. Acle scored four goals to kill off the game.
But Hindringham created enough chances to win or at least get something from the game. West had a great effort cleared off the line after he beat his marker. Carlos Greeves and Scott Gray also went close, but it was not to be Hindringham's day, and their play did not deserve it. Hindringham's game is all about their tempo and getting stuck into the opposition, but for some reason this did not happen and they will change in weeks to come.
