FECKENHAM joint assistant manager Tom Davies was delighted with his side’s efforts as they bounced back from weekend disappointment to secure a 1-0 victory over Moors Academy on Tuesday.
The Millers produced a below-par performance in losing 3-0 at Hampton on Saturday, but were vastly improved against Moors as they secured all three points in their first home game of the Midland League Division Two campaign.
Davies said: “After Saturday’s result and performance against Hampton, we asked the lads for a response and we got that.
“The exciting thing is that we’re always creating good chances. We did so at the weekend when we weren’t at our best and created good chances again on Tuesday.
“We’re just lacking the confidence and luck to add these to the scoresheet.
“Our defence kept a solid clean sheet and conceded little efforts at goal, which is also pleasing.
“We move on to Saturday and a tough trip to NKF Burbage who have started the campaign with two solid wins.”
Feckenham were forced to do things the hard way against Moors after seeing Ryan Edwards sent off in the 55th minute following a second yellow card for dissent.
However, the winner arrived shortly afterwards when Umit Eminoglu saw the visiting keeper off his line and fired a superb 35-yard free kick into the net.
The midfielder could have added to his and his side’s tally, but missed a late penalty awarded after the Moors keeper had been red-carded for kicking out at Ben Cox.
