Didsbury have a Training Day against Chorlton
AFC Didsbury were up against Chorlton in the second round of the County Cup on the back of a fine winning run.
The tone of the game was set from the first minute as Didsbury attacked and should have opened the scoring straight from kick off. It was Deja Vu for most of the first half as Didsbury appeared to be Unstoppable going forward but the lack of composure in front of goal let them down.
The Seige was broken when Mike Corbett lobbed the keeper from the edge of the box after a corner wasn't cleared very well by the ageing Chorlton defence. As Chorlton were looking for The Equalizer a second wasn't far behind for Didsbury as Ross Menghini got behind the defence to square for Corbett, who teed up the on rushing Pete Kilgour to slot into the empty net.
Didsbury ran Out Of Time in the first half to add to their goal tally, but 2 minutes into the second half Corbett went for Glory from 25 yards out and the ball squirmed under the keeper, he was a Man On Fire. Chorlton tried their best to turn the Crimson Tide, but were playing nothing but hopeful long balls which were easily mopped up by the AFCD defence.
James Leighton's goal kick injury got too much for him and Jonathan Mackie selflessly took the gloves, and was a Safe House for the rest of the match. Didsbury Gaffer, Adam Musson, rang the changes and was instantly rewarded as Eugene Agyeman, cutting in from the left, slotted past the keeper into the bottom corner.
Chorlton fluked a goal after a Ricochet fell to the lanky centre back/striker to slot the ball home, the keeper had no chance.
A Didsbury fifth came after a long ball from Colin McDonald was collected by Kieran Smith who showed Courage Under Fire to slot it past the keeper. Didsbury ended one shy of The Magnificent Seven as Agyeman rounded the keeper and slotted the ball into the empty net to make it 6 for the Didsbury.
Notable mention to Matt Harrison who showed he had a License To Kill as he left their beefy centre back sprawled on the floor after standing firm to a strong shoulder charge.
The Didsbury machines marches on.
