ANVILS COME GOOD
Not a Tale of Two Cities, more a Tale of Two Halves, in which the Anvils managed to snatch
victory from the jaws of defeat, all this at a sunny, but cold Haven Centre.
After going behind before most of the punters had taken their seats, the Anvils were given a
right old runaround for the reminder of the half, by a UA side whose overall first half display
made a mockery of their league position, indeed the Anvils were fortunate enough to keep
the score down to a single goal.
Come the second half, it was as if both sides had changed shirts, as the Anvils took advantage
of their 12th man ( the slope ),plus a lowering sun in their opponents eyes, to wrest control back
in their favour thus putting UA to the sword with a two goal salvo, courtesy of a Citizen Cane pen,
and a 'bouncing bomb' freekick by Michael Belli, gave the Anvils the points and a boost of a two
place elevation in the league. With just one league defeat in ten, the Haven Centre is fast
becoming a fortress once more, especially with our 12th man!!
