The boys played well but sadly narrowly lost to a much more experienced side.

Who wants to go to Wembley anyway when you have Webley's ?

Havant & W vs MERTHYR

The commentary was not the most informative, but it sounds as though we played pretty well. Maybe well enough to put our indifferent start to the season behind us and start moving up the table.

Commentator said Merthyr could return home with their heads held high,so they must have done alright.

Havant v merthyr

Post  Barneyboy on Sat Sep 16, 2017 2:32 pm

Made the journey to watch the game,having seen the squad with traylor and touray up front I felt it was the right choice.
Having watched 90% of games this season I feel there's something amiss.
I can't quite put my finger on it but something's not working with the squad but if we are to make the top 10 at the end of season then things need to change as we can't survive on draws and supporters will stay away and tbh we can't afford to lose 150 of gate receipts.just my own opinion

Decent midfielder's and a stronger bench no game changers coming off the bench.

Havant v merthyr

We just can't find the back of the net,the strikers who were brought in haven't found the net and that's what we need is someone who's not passed it or starting out we need someone who is there now.gavin has tried pretty much different formations but works one week not so second week.
I also think our pre season was an absolute joke with no real challenge to see how squad played.

We looked decent going up hill in the sunshine and the ball could be played on the floor easily, but lost it after it pissed down for 30 mins from the start of the second half and the game got more aerial.

Last 10, as it dried up, we got better.

I'm not sure if that's too significant, but it may be given that the 3G plays better in the wet than grass on a slope.

For the 2nd season in succession Merthyr bowed out of the FA Cup against a National League South outfit.  This time around it was Havant and Waterlooville who came from behind and survived a late Martyrs onslaught to hang on to a 2-1 victory.

Merthyr changed their usual formation with Kyle Patten, Wright and Tancock playing as a back 3 in front of Davies.  Davies and Pring patrolled the flanks joining Evans, Richards and Bowen in midfield leaving Traylor and Touray up front.  McDonald made a welcome return on the bench alongside Watkins, Fleetwood, Robbie Patten, Morgan and Jenkins.

Merthyr attacked from the off with Young making a good catch at his far post from a Traylor cross and then the Martyrs took an early lead.  Evans broke up Havant’s first attack and did well to find Traylor in the middle and he sent it wide right towards Touray.  Touray showed twinkling footwork to beat Williams and he sent in a tantalising cross which beat the Havant defence and Traylor who had continued his run, popped up at the far post to head it into the net from 3 yards and in only the second minute the Martyrs were a goal to the good.

There followed a period of play with the ball largely in midfield and the home side were making little impression as Merthyr were defending well and Davies looked secure behind the defence making some safe catches.  Young, in the Havant goal, also had to do well to catch a dangerous Traylor cross from the left.  With a quarter of an hour gone, Merthyr almost increased their lead when a good move down the left involving Pring and Richards allowed Bowen to send in a cross towards Touray in the Havant area but his shot on the turn went over the bar.  5 minutes later Davies was called into action and he did well to get down low to his left to make a good save from a Barker shot.  

Play was end to end for the remainder of the half with both defences largely on top although Wright had to make a good block on the line from another Barker shot and Young had to make a good save from Traylor who got in a shot after good work by Richards on the Merthyr right.
Half time came with Merthyr deservedly leading 1-0.

It was expected that Havant would start the 2nd half with renewed vigour, no doubt after a rollicking from their manager and they did not disappoint the home supporters.  They had a couple of early efforts on the Merthyr goal which failed to trouble the scorer.  The 7 minutes into the second half Havant got their equaliser when Rutherford sent in a cross from the right which eluded everyone bar Prior who was on his own in the Merthyr area and he slid the ball home past Davies to restore parity.

Havant were now very much on top sniffing another goal but by and large Merthyr were defending deeply and well.  Merthyr made their first substitution of the game with Fleetwood replacing Bowen and made a few inroads into the Havant half but the closest the Martyrs got was when Richards picked up a clearance from Woodford and stepped inside but sent his shot high over Young’s bar.  Havant came back but again the Merthyr defence held firm keeping the Havant attackers at bay although Williams did get a cross in from the left which seemed to bounce off the top of the bar and away to safety.  Shortly afterwards Traylor and Touray made way for Robbie Patten and Jenkins no doubt in an attempt to shore up the midfield whilst using Jenkins’s pace to counterattack.  

However it was Havant who made the most telling substitution of the game.  They gained a corner after a Prior effort was deflected behind at the near post by Evans.  Before the kick was taken and with about 13 minutes left Hayter replaced Rutherford and he wandered into the Merthyr area, was not picked up and was left all on his own about 7 yards out, to send a header past Davies to give Havant a 2-1 lead.

Merthyr threw everything forward in an attempt to rescue the situation, including sending Wright up to play centre forward and gained a few half chances to equalise.  Young made a good catch from a Pring cross, a Richards’ free kick was partially cleared but came back across the area to Fleetwood and instead of having a go at goal he sent it back across the area and Tancock sent a volley just wide of the post and Fleetwood just failed to get a shot on target following Evans header which flew across goal.

The game ended with Havant winning 2-1.[/b][/b]
