Jeffrey MacCombie opens the scoring for Zippy

Brook Street may have been comprehensively beaten by FC Zippy this afternoon, but results elsewhere mean ironically that their position has improved.

The Monifieth club may still be in seventh place, but they now find themselves with a two goal advantage over third bottom Medchester Utd, albeit they have a three point advantage. With Brook Street facing already relegated ABZ City in the final game, as long as they can match, or better, Medchester’s results in the other three games, automatic relegation would be avoided.

“We’re well aware of the permutations surrounding our final games, but it doesn’t give us any excuse for not performing in any game”, said Eskild when asked at the post-match press conference.

He added, “If we slip further behind Medchester, we will be in trouble”.

The Danish coach has been under fire from a section of the Brook Street support in recent weeks, but Eskild hit back this afternoon saying, “We hear all the jeering, but we are a unit and we need all our true supporters to get behind us. If these individuals don’t like what they’re seeing, why do they bother turning up? They’re clearly against us and we don’t need or want them anywhere near the club”.

Such was his anger, even the Chairman broke his usual silence to back the team and coach saying, “A lot of these so-called ‘supporters’ are fair-weather fans, and to be honest I know for a fact that almost all of them did not start coming to our games until we reached Division Three. They never bothered coming when we were mid-table in Division Five or even in Division Four”.

He continued, “We have a superb hard-core support, and if it was them jeering I would be concerned, however as for this lot, if they are not giving the team their 100% backing, they are not welcome at the club and I’d suggest they find somewhere else to go to on a Saturday afternoon”.

Both Medchester and Brook Street face home games against Lords 11 and away games against FMGLive Addicts amongst their final four matches. Medchester face The Disorders at home next week, and of course Street play ABZ City in the final game.
