Crewe Athletic 2-1 WBAFC

After reaching another final last week and Whaley sat in mid table security it was a good opportunity to give several squad members some crucial game time. Young Jacob O’Donnell started upfront, Gregory and Gemmell both made their first starts since last year and so leading goal scorer Leadbetter, unwell during the week, was on the bench alongside Will Bailey; J Kay still suspended.

Against a strong swirling wind and on a bumpy pitch Whaley had the better of the first half and could and should have finished the game off by half time. Dwyer ran Crewe’s back line ragged, had two close range shots saved by an inform Crewe keeper, and beating defenders for fun he also delivered some telling balls into the box which Whaley unfortunately didn’t convert. Eventually Langford got on the end of a deep Dwyer cross and looped his header back across goal hitting the underside of the cross bar to put the visitors in front. A free header for Sutton at the back post hit the side netting. Crewe were always dangerous from set plays and Blundell delivered some terrific corners that Whaley just managed to clear however a dubious penalty decision went against the visitors, who were punished for winning the ball in their box; Southern duly equalised. Bailey replaced the injured Dunn after only 15 minutes.

The strong swirling wind so difficult in the first have dropped but even so it was a pretty eventless second half with both teams wasteful in possession. Whaley lacked quality and too often resorted to the long ball losing possession and so it always looked likely that the next goal would decide the game. Surprisingly it was a Poor Hudson free kick that set up Crewe’s winning goal 10 minutes from time. As everybody set up for a high back post delivery the miss kick arrived near post but should have been cleared; two Whaley defenders collided in their eagerness to clear allowing Lewis a free attempt on goal… Tattersall saving that but Lewis nodded the rebound over him for the decisive second goal. It was evident the result meant an awful lot more to Crewe than Whaley but more importantly Whaley got more minutes in their squad and another fixture completed.

An otherwise sporting encounter was marred by an stupid aggressive Crewe ‘supporter’ who tried to enter the Whaley dressing room to threaten players and determined to fight. Not what the game needs against a back-drop of unselfish work done by volunteers from both clubs.

Pilkington 2-1 WBAFC

Whaley travelled to Pilkington trying to preserve their long unbeaten run starting well and adapting to the 4G pitch. Although retaining possession and being first to the ball Whaley struggled to make much of an impact in the last third until the 25th minute when a 30 yard through ball over the top of Pilks centre backs set Leadbetter clear to calmly slot the ball past the advancing keeper. This gave the visitors a visible lift and for the next 10 minutes they had their best period of the match culminating in Laedbetter just failing to take advantage of a great Gilbride cross when his header from 6 yards went wide. For the remainder of the half Pilks started to impose their strong physical influence on the game but Tattersall kept them at bay with two great saves before the break.

Second half started scrappy with neither side giving much away but on 55 minutes Drayson lost his footing on the edge of the area giving Boylan the opportunity to rifle a terrific shot giving Tatts no chance, 1-1. This obviously lifted the home side to produce their best period of the match. Pinning Whaley back with deep crosses reigning in from both flanks the winner eventually arrived on 65 minutes after a perfectly weighted cross from the left was headed home by Sephton. This brought the visitors back to life with Broome working tirelessly in midfield to break up play and push Whaley forward. The best and last chance of the game fell to Laedbetter but his powerful shot on the turn hit the bar!

Pilikington celebrated the final whistle as this result keeps them in the title race with Altrincham. Whaley’s unbeaten run came to an end and they must feel slightly aggrieved not to have walked away with at least a point after a physical game played in good spirit.
