Needing four wins from their remaining five games, Solent had the bit firmly between their teeth. Burridge succeeded in frustrating then during the first half, without ever threatening the Solent goal. Mid way through the second period Burridge were no longer able to break up wave after wave of Solent attack, and their inability to keep possession made their task even more difficult.
Once finally Solent broke the deadlock, space was found and further goals followed. Burridge can take some positives from the battling first half performance; but will surely have to take on a pre-season regime as an essential obligation, instead of an option they'd rather avoid if they're ever going to improve, and actually discover what they're capable of.
