Third placed AFA Wakefield were given a lesson in passing and clinical finishing as a very young SPS Reserves side romped to a 3 – 0 away victory. On a fast zippy 3g surface SPS dominated large parts of the game with a slick and disciplined performance. Great work down the right by Zac Walker led to Josh Wain slamming the ball home after pulling the ball back from the by line.
Wain made no mistake from close range to complete a fine passing move. On the stroke of half time Walker rifled in when he found space on the six yard box. It was Brandon Whitfield who had done the spadework passing the ball back smartly into the path of the oncoming Walker who drilled the ball high into the net with power and accuracy.
HT AFC Wakefield 0 – 2 SPS
An SPS reshuffle after the break when the injured Wain was replaced by Oli Warren. The change didn’t alter things very much as SPS continued to control proceedings overall. Whitfield, Hilbert and Walker were a constant threat up top for SPS as they worked hard together as a unit both in and out of possession.
Hilbert topped off a great all round performance when he volleyed home from six yards on 80minutes.
Middletons long range diagonal ball from wide on the left was met sweetly at the far stick by Hilberts right boot sending the ball zipping past the home goalkeeper high to his left , who can only be glad he didn’t get a hand to it!
The boys saw out the game well, defended solidly when they had to and deservedly took all three points.
Thanks to AFC Wakefield for their hospitality.
Full Time: AFC Wakefield 0 – 3 SPS
