Eaton strikes to give Spa a point

JACK Eaton’s goal helped Droitwich Spa pick up a Midland Combination Division One 1-1 draw at Greenhill on Wednesday night.

Eaton finished well in the first half to put Spa ahead but despite creating a host of chances they were unable to build on the lead before Greenhill levelled with 20 minutes left.

Manager Tom Goss felt that a point was the least his side deserved and he also felt that Saturday’s 3-0 defeat at West Midlands Police was harsh on his side.

“There has been a chasm between what we were producing a few weeks ago compared to the last three performances,” he said.

“Two stunning strikes have put us on the back foot on Saturday when if we had left with a point it wouldn’t have been undeserved.

“Whilst on Wednesday we created so many good chances it was hard to see how we didn’t win the game. The fact their keeper was named man of the match tells you everything you need to know but despite that, the players deserve so much credit for the way they have turned things around.”

Spa’s away performances have been of particular concern for Goss but heading into tomorrow’s trip to local rivals Fairfield Villa he is in an optimistic mood.

“Make no doubt about it they are a very good side and I expect it to be the toughest of the three away games we have had in a row,” he said.

“But I couldn’t have asked any more of my players in the last couple of games and it has been enjoyable to watch them improve in so many areas.

“It is essential they keep it up though and keep striving to improve. It is still a results business and I am always mindful of that. But the performances of the last week have given us chance to get a result and if we keep on doing that, with the talent we have got here, they will start to come.”
